Dj Margaret is joined in conversation with artists DARRIN MARTIN, and from New York, BILLY MILLER on their current projects and practice.
DARRIN MARTIN is an artist, educator and curator. Through video, sculpture, and multi-channel installation, Martin’s work engages cross-modal perception as a way to examine the limits of certainty. Currently, he has been working on a series of videos that have been inspired by working with a group of artists and academics around the topics of disability studies and the arts. Considering notions of accessibility and inaccessibility, Martin explores tactility, sonic analogies, and/or audio description as method to unearth an array of subjective interpretations. His videos have screened internationally at festivals and museums, including the Museum of Modern Art, Pacific Film Archives, Impakt Festival, European Media Art Festival, and in 2009 he toured a program of works to over a dozen cities in the US. His installations have exhibited at venues including The Kitchen in New York and most recently at Krowswork Gallery in Oakland, CA and the Center for Contemporary Art in Sacramento. Martin has also collaborated with artist Torsten Zenas Burns, building diverse speculative fictions around re-imagined educational practices. Their works have been included in screenings and exhibitions in venues including The Oberhausen Short Film Festival, The Paris/Berlin International, Eyebeam, and most recently at the Dumbo Arts Center in Brooklyn. Martin occasionally curates video screenings and is the Graduate Advisor in the interdisciplinary Studio Art program at UC Davis where he also teaches undergraduate media arts classes.
