James Gladman

James Gladman is an artist, designer and musician working primarily in time-based electronic media. His music videos and video art installations have been exhibited and published internationally. As a long-time collaborator with the experimental cut-up culture-jammers Negativland, Gladman created three ‘music videos’ for the group.

His video art addresses ‘collective subtexts’ in commercial culture that await decoding via anarcho-structuralist sensibilities and ritual/-meta-programming techniques, in order to uncover aspects of a media-constructed consensus Id.

Gladman taught at, and was instrumental in integrating electronic mediums across artistic disciplines at Cranbrook Academy of Art. While at Cranbrook, Gladman was a designer/collaborator for the office of groundbreaking graphic designers P.Scott and Laurie Makela.

James Gladman is currently professor of Motion Media at Savannah College of Art and Design. His work can be viewed at: www.jimgladman.com


Alessandro Imperato

Alessandro is a digital media artist and theorist in art history, visual culture and media theory. His imagery draws heavily on Brechtian themes of ‘making strange’ settled signs, meanings and narratives. His work is particularly concerned with media mythology in the post-cold war context of rising political and cultural repression and regulation.

Alessandro is a cross-media practitioner and is also an experienced performer in live digital video, which involves performing in real-time installations and public venues from clubs to art galleries. His practice can be described as digital media montage. The artwork is intended to intervene in the mediations between reality and representation.

Dr. Imperato is a professor of Motion Design, Digital Arts and Media Theory at the Savannah College of Art and Design, Atlanta. He is also the Program co-ordinator of Motion Design. His work can be viewed at: www.alessandroimperato.com
