HOTBED: Local Art Students to Show Their Chops During Art Basel
|HOTBED's participants are students at the New World School of the Arts|
Steven Marquez, who comes from a commercial photography background, plays with the viewer's sense of space. The video, which will be shown in a hotel, depicts an empty hotel room--its sterility, its sameness. No matter how lived in a hotel room is, its character never changes, Marquez said.
And lastly there's Sebastian Duncan Portuondo, whose primary medium is stained glass. Like Noble, with whom Protuondo has worked in the past, his art is about the passage of time and the movement of particulates. In his video piece, he plans to record the process of ice melting.
These videos will be shown on a loop in the lobby of the Deauville Beach Resort Hotel, home to NADA Art Fair, and when patrons have finished their cocktails and watched the videos in public, they can resign to their rooms and rewatch the films there.
