totally hip art event! It is an international site-specific video art and projection festival, held on the bustling Staten Island industrial waterfront. This year it will be held at the Atlantic Salt Company. It's a great evening of visual treats you will see nowhere else! (And, to enhance it, I believe they will be serving beer this year.)

I got one piece accepted in this show. There is a very talented line-up of artists who are included, many of whom have not received the attention they deserve. Come and be one of the first to discover this hidden talent.
