Biography
Steven Hoskins is a video artist and designer living in Richmond, Virginia. He teaches in the School of the Arts at Virginia Commonwealth University. He’s spent most of his life as a graphic designer, and recently as a graphic design educator who teaches and practices in video. Much of this work is imbued with formal/visual explanations for the Hermeneutic Circle: the understanding of meaning derived from interrelationships between part and whole. This is embodied in the video image that is broken and reassembled; fragmented and reconstituted; a union made of asynchrony. Chaotic and irregular movements converge into unified movement; small multiples begin to move as a system.
Dan Hanna lives and works in Oxnard, California. He has over 10 years of experience in the animation industry. His work has appeared on BBC America and The Cartoon Network. He is also the illustrator of a New York Times best selling children’s book The Pout-Pout Fish (2008). His daily self-portrait series has continued since 1991.
