Yuki Kimura’s most recent installations derive from and incorporate found and original photographs. Kimura disrupts typical artistic categories, such as photography and sculpture, by employing photographic images, primarily of domestic spaces, to create sculptural and immersive environments that explore the often complex relationship between images, perception, memory and temporality. Kimura received her MFA from Kyoto City University of Arts in 1996 and lives and works in Kyoto.

Garrett Pruter focuses on re-purposing found 20th-century film negatives through various subtractive processes. Exploring nostalgia, entropy, and mnemonic frailty, he investigates images of interior space as a constructed personal and reflective realm. Garrett Pruter recieved his BFA from Parsons School of Design in 2012. He currently lives and works in New York.
