Jon Chambers, Symbiosis
In Symbiosis, 3D scans of Chambers body are rendered beyond their
physical possibilities in surreal and nonrepresentational landscapes and
spaces. Formal and perceptual relationships start to develop as we
reflect on our own body’s control while interfacing with digital
realities: bodies as data are fluid, mutable, influenced and infinite.
The video culminates into abstractness, where the parts become vague
references of themselves and are integrated in the space.
Snow Yunxue Fu, The Chambers
The Chambers is a multi-channel video installation made by the Chicago
based new media artist Snow Yunxue Fu. The installation is consisted of
columns of digital simulated waters, storming in natural and unnatural
movements. The virtual liquid moving sculptures layer with repeated
intervals going back and forth. Wild yet controlled, real yet digital,
providing a limited opening for the viewers to interface with the
subliminal imaginary nature.

The writer Rebecca Bengal profiles JLin (Jerrilynn
Patton), "a producer at the vanguard of electronic music", coming out of
Chicago & Northwest Indiana's dance music scene.
Patton’s music is propelled by the sheer force of her percussion,
her ornate, radical progressions, her shape-shifting sounds, an
undercurrent of menace. Listening to Jlin tracks is
like watching the horror movie heroine open the door into a vast
unknown—and yet, she turns out to be completely in control, morphing and
bending the rhythm, changing up the narrative again.
“I want to surprise me as much as I want to surprise you,” she
says. “I love when I hit a person like a tornado. There is no easing. We
just go straight in.”
Two years ago, when Dark Energy came out, Patton was working swing
shifts at U.S. Steel in East Chicago and then, in Gary. She was in the
break room when she found out that album made year-end lists at The New
York Times, The Wire, and Pitchfork. “I would be banding together these
massive pieces of steel and then I would open Facebook, and everyone’s
saying, ‘Congratulations, congratulations, congratulations,’ and I’m
just like, ‘What are you talking about?’”
Within months, Patton, who had never been to a big concert in her
entire life, was being flown to perform her own: at a museum in New York
City, at a festival in Poland, in Barcelona, Moscow, Australia, India,
in Los Angeles. Headlines capitalized on the Flashdance-esque
narrative of the steelworker with an inner artistic drive. When famed
designer Rick Owens asked her to soundtrack his fall 2014 show, she put
in a request for time off to go to Paris Fashion Week. Her supervisors
weren’t buying it.
“But when I came back and I showed them pictures, they were like,
‘Oh! This is real. Are you serious?!’” Patton says. “My life just
started not to make sense.” She quit her day job more than a year ago to
focus on music full-time.
