Plus 3 Ferris Wheels is a curated video loop that will feature 25 videos by 26 artists, including 3 photography and Intermedia students here at Western. Unlike the last video loop in the spring of 2007, Ritual and Repetition, the submissions were not restricted to a theme within the work. The name of this video loop was inspired by 3 of the chosen videos, which each contained a Ferris Wheel somewhere within the video. The 3 videos were very different works and this was only realized after the work was selected. Plus 3 Ferris Wheels was curated from an international open call for video, curated by Adriane Little.
The selected artists for Plus 3 Ferris Wheels are: Dave Ball (London United Kingdom), Megan Berner (Iowa City Iowa), Valerie A. Brodar (Colorado Springs Colorado), Anna Campbell (Grand Rapids Michigan), Jenna Caschera (Kalamazoo Michigan), Christopher Cassidy (Greensboro North Carolina), Brian DeLevie (Denver Colorado), Celeste Fichter (Brooklyn New York), Michael Gamble (Gallup New Mexico), Matthew Garrison (Downingtown Pennsylvania), Jodi Hays (Nashville Tennessee), Daniel Kariko (Tallahassee Florida), Jacek J. Kolasinski (Miami Florida), Karie Kupier (Kalamazoo Michigan), Ron Lambert (Andover New York), Brian Lauch / Petra Pokos (Pittsburgh Pennsylvania / Ljubljana Slovenia), Gary Lindgren (Somerset New Jersey), Lucinda Luvaas (Hemet California), Lilianne Milgrom (Fairfax Virginia), Esther Maria Probst (Syracuse New York), Blake Shirley (Manchester Connecticut), Evelin Stermitz (Austria/Slovenia), Heather Stratton (Kalamazoo Michigan), Thanh Van Vo (Muncie Indiana) and Vonda Yarberry (Springfield Missouri).
Plus 3 Ferris Wheels will be screened continuously – from 10:00am to 8:30pm – for 4 days, February 25 – 28, 2008 on the plasma screens at the entrance of the Richmond Center.
