Visit “Artificial Light,” a photography exhibition by Duncan Madaris Hill (Photographic and Electronic Media '14), at Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower from Friday, September 5 through Saturday, October 25, 2014. Hill’s work focuses on spaces lit with artificial lighting. He believes whether by coincidence, or clearly designed intention, artificial light informs, evokes, and manipulates the onlooker.

Bromo Seltzer Arts Tower is located at 21 S. Eutaw Street.

Matthew Fishel, Mount Royal '08: In The End, We Were Never So Different
"In the End, We Were Never So Different" @ School 33 Project Space
Silent HD Animation Loop 6 Minutes 2012
September 5, 2014 – October 25, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, September 5, 6-9pm
School 33 Art Center
1427 Light Street
Two Cold War bombers--an American B-52 and a Soviet Tu-95--follow an eternal flight path across a misty arctic sea. Having lived out their useful lives, they continue to spend their days as they are accustomed--flying in circles and dropping no bombs. Perhaps they have grown fond of each other.
"In the End, We Were Never So Different" is a meditation on crisis, missed potential, and changing relationships. It is a short film with no clear beginning or end, subverting linear time and creating an opportunity for the viewer to determine their own experience.
This film was created using Autodesk Maya, a software commonly used in film and game productions.
