Kate Ewald is a time-based media artist and curator living in Baltimore, MD. With diverse interests in live & expanded cinema, classical structuralist filmmaking, intermedia, mechanical accidents, and homemade video feedback rigs, many of her works violently challenge the conventional assumptions of the spectator as they relate to expectations of narrative, perception, and time. Her curatorial, critical, and academic work is inspired by artistic practice and a ritualistic study of theoretical philosophies.
Kate currently holds a studio at the cooperatively run Current Gallery in Baltimore. Her films & videos have shown at Microscope Gallery, Videofag, Videopolis, & High Zero Festival, among others. She recently contributed a piece about Sight Unseen to Incite! Journal of Experimental Media #4 and has a proposal accepted to Millennium Film Journal #60 about ecological implications of (and alternatives to) traditional film processing.
Lorenzo Gattorna is a filmmaker and programmer originally from New York now residing in Baltimore. He received a BFA from Tisch School of the Arts at NYU in 2007. His short films have screened in exhibitions associated with ARKIPEL, Artsfest Film Festival, Baltimore City Paper, CCNY, Chicago Underground Film Festival, Colour out of Space, EMP Collective, Haverhill Experimental Film Festival, LMAKprojects, Les Rencontres Internationales, Maryland Film Festival, Maysles Cinema, Microscope Gallery, Onion City Experimental Film and Video Festival, Plug Projects, Sonic Circuits, Spectacle Theater, TULCA Festival of Visual Arts, UnionDocs, Utopia Film Festival, Videofag, VIDEOMEDEJA and Views from the Avant-Garde at the New York Film Festival. He has programmed screenings for Anthology Film Archives, Antimatter [Media Art], Maysles Cinema, Spectacle Theater and UnionDocs. Recently he received the 2012 Creative Alliance Media Makers’ Fellowship for Falling Out and was selected as a Semi-Finalist for the 2013 Janet & Walter Sondheim Artscape Prize for Coupled Vision.
Margaret Rorison has been making films since 2011. Before she discovered the magic of filmmaking, she spent most of her energy on poetry, painting and photography. Her current work often develops from extensive walks through rural and urban landscapes, combining memories, field recordings and text. She is interested in the potentials of storytelling through the use of live projection and sound.
Rorison’s work has been screened at various festivals and venues including CROSSROADS, AAFF, Images Festival, Mono No Aware VI & VII, Sonic Circuits Festival, Microscope Gallery, The Moscow Museum of Modern Art and The High Zero Festival. She is a partial member of the artist run film lab, LaborBerlin and holds an MFA from The Maryland Institute College of Art.
