  Benjamin Asam Kellogg  (b. 1991, New York, NY). Kellogg is a multimedia artist based in New York. his work and research takes on the form of a digital dérive. Diving into loosely charted areas of the internet and surfacing with accumulations of digital imagery, Kellogg merges the artifacts of his research into digital paintings of overlaid vector graphics. While the tools Kellogg employs may be available to any message board conspiracy theorist, there is a great deal of nuance to Kellogg’s work. This is not just located in his treatment of pixelated edges and image quality, but in his ability to make these ultra contemporary images timeless through his understanding of a canonical art historical mode.   Connor Crawford  (b. 1992, Ontario, Canada) is a multimedia artist who’s work vaguely explores narrative, space and the audience’s role. Connor lives and works in Toronto. Recent solo, two person and group exhibitions include “Act II: Joke Courtyard” at The Loon (Toronto, ON), “Acrophobia” at Main Street (Toronto, ON) and “Usher 3: Reloaded” at February (Austin, TX).
