Simon Ardizzone & Russell Michaels

Hacking Democracy

(2006, 82min)
You can't vote them out when the fix is in. Electronic voting machines count about 87% of the votes cast in America today—but are they reliable? Simon Ardizzone & Russell Michaels' Emmy nominated documentary follows Seattle grandmother turned activist Bev Harris who, upon discovering startling examples of machine tampering, sets out to determine just how vulnerable these black boxes are.

Sarah Sutton
Knots and Pulses

This exhibition by Ithaca-area artist Sarah Sutton will feature a series of monochromatic oil paintings that combine representational imagery with distortions and abstractions that create scenarios in flux. They are essentially landscape paintings, but Sutton's treatment of the landscape toys with its sense of space and the notion of the built vs. the natural environment.

Katie Bell
Abstract Cabinet

Katie Bell’s exhibition is a site-specific installation conceived of as a one-act drama starring anonymous artifacts. Functioning like a theatrical set, the gallery holds static characters that reference the interior architecture of corporate and commercial spaces. Sculptural objects are often fractured or untethered to a contextual structure. Functioning as a whole, the individual artefacts are a nod to players on a stage, held captive in space and time.
