Jason Bernagozzi: Citystream

September 2, 2016 – October 2, 2016

Atrium Gallery

Adriane Little, curator

Citystream is a multi-channel video installation about the city of Syracuse as a complex organism going through liminal states of being. The forced pixel abstraction process blends together and ruptures disparate images of people and architecture as one symbiotic form. Abandoned ruins that juxtapose busy urban destinations are arranged as a panoramic landscape designed to suggest that despite casual observations and assumptions, all things share interdependent states of becoming.

Jason Bernagozzi is a video, sound and new media artist living and working in upstate New York and is the co-founder of the experimental media arts non-profit Signal Culture.

His work has received several awards including grants from the New York State Council for the Arts, Wavefarm and the ARTS Council for the Southern Finger Lakes.
