Charles Lindsay   (USA) is a multi-disciplinary artist whose work synthesizes ideas about technology, eco-systems, semiotics and signaling. Lindsay creates immersive environments, sound installations, sculptures built from salvaged aerospace and bio-tech equipment. He recently partnered with the Chinese artist Shaoyu Su to realize "WIND TUNNEL: the Hongshan Experiment" which debuted at the Today Art Museum in Beijing. Lindsay and Su are currently developing "Future Human and the CLOUD." This work combines 3D printed sculpture, patterned strobe bursts, a unique 65 meter single stringed instrument and augmented reality, to investigate concepts pertaining to deep time, optical SETI, and inter-species communication.

  James Mylne  (UK) is a British  contemporary  artist known for his  drawings in ballpoint pen . His technical abilities with the unorthodox  art medium  have earned Mylne recognition in Europe and the UK, where he is considered among the leaders of the genre and emulated by art students.  The Ballpointer  online journal called Mylne "Britain's premier ballpoint pen artist" in a 2015 feature article. The artist's  photorealist  likenesses of iconic celebrities attracted early media attention and continues to be one aspect of his output. Mylne also creates mixed-media works adding spray paint, magic markers and more to his ballpoint originals. Artwork expressing personal views and broader interests flourished throughout 2014.

  Chris Jordan  is an American artist and photographer based in  Seattle , Washington. Many of Jordan's works are created from photographs of  garbage  and mass consumption, a serendipitous technique which started when he visited an industrial yard to look at patterns of color and order. Jordan uses everyday commonalitie such as a plastic cup and defines the blind unawareness involved in American consumerism. His work, while often unsettling, is a message about unconscious behaviors in our everyday lives, leaving it to the viewer to draw conclusions about the inevitable consequences which will arise from our habits.   Midway: Message from the Gyre  (2009–2013) is a series of photographs depicting rotting carcasses of baby  Laysan albatrosses  filled with plastic. These birds nest on  Midway Atoll  and are being fed plastic by their parents, who find floating plastic in the middle of the ocean and mistake it for food. This is a part of an ongoing arts and media project called Midway Journey, which has its own website. In relation to the  Midway  photographs, Jordan created  the film ALBATROSS., which is a powerful visual journey into the heart of a gut-wrenching environmental tragedy. On one of the remotest islands on Earth, tens of thousands of albatross chicks lie dead on the ground, their bodies filled with plastic.

  Kanata Goto’s  (Japan) image might - from the point of view of its format at least - look rather similar to painting; simply with lines of threads instead of strokes of oil. Nevertheless, the medium, the creation process and eventual relationship of his image with the viewer is, after closer inspection, fundamentally different. First, Goto fixes the metal/wooden structure following purely geometric logic: for example, a triangle with doubled, prolonged sides is multiplied and opened to form a symmetry and create a rhombus like opening in the centre. Then, he starts to “weave” following the regular notches or nails along the whole structure and using only one thread or few of them that runs out from different points to clash into vibrant intercrossing. Stretching his threads, Goto with his imagination, unconsciousness – with his human side - enters the (indicative, if not totalitarian) grid but while being tied by the media (both the structure of the base and linearity of the thread) searches for…freedom, for singularity, for escape… The process can give birth to anthropomorphic image (face or uterus, for example, hinting back on the structural base, the symmetry of the human body itself). It can create a space with three-dimensional effect and illusion of perspective (although cunningly similar to the bee-hive or the space of the aliens space-ship as depicted in sci-fi cinema). By cracking the repetitive pattern with irregularity, it might push the image into the direction of “sacred” and provoke the imaginary for worship. Finally, shortcutting distant epochs and subjects, Goto’s works recall simultaneously the primitive man, which makes a first notch of creativity, as well as cyberpunk character with his quest to breakout from the super-structure using its own systematic means. And these are some of the conceptual threads we would like you to use to go “Through The Grid”.

  Otto Schade  Concepcion, Chile  After a degree in Architecture at the Bio Bio University and one in Construction and Design in Concepción, Chile, he started his career as an Architect with his own practice and as Urban Sculptor, being rewarded for public and private projects.  Otto was also an Architect Lecturer at Southbank University in London.   Fascinated by Surrealism and abstract art, Otto turned his creative skills to painting, which has become his strongest passion. Originally working with oil paint on canvas, he has since consistently explored different styles and mediums – growing, adapting changing his style to include other techniques such as collage, illustration and stencil free-hand spray paint on canvas and walls.  Most of the themes behind his compositions are treated with a sharp, ironic touch.   Awarded commendation in "Euroclad Drawing Competition". Published Architectural Today Magazine Issue - October 2006. Awarded in the Regional Urban Sculpture Context, for the Third bridge of Bío Bío's river (Llacolén),Rivera Norte's sector, organized by MOP ( work: Bío Bío's Whirl ) Concepcion-Chile. Awarded in the 2nd Urban Sculpture Biennial, organized by Bío Bío University Hualmapu Park, San Pedro de la Paz (work; Dry Lagoon Rushes). Chile.
