DOTS IN SPACE GIF selected into 6th Annual Drawing Discourse

"UNC Asheville seeks to examine drawing as it is practiced and defined by today’s artists. The exhibition will demonstrate the continued significance of drawing through both conventional and innovative methods" Juror Val Britton is a nationally and internationally exhibited artist based in San Francisco, whose mixed media works incorporate “the language of maps” through collage, drawing, painting, staining, printing, stitching and cutting paper. Britton selected 47 works for this exhibit from among more than 1,100 entries submitted by 379 artists from six different countries.

Interrupting Entropy: Selections From The Betlach Collection

Cosmic Ancestry was selected to be included into the exhibit Interrupting Entropy along with Ann Hamilton, Omer Fast, Rina Banerjee and other artists in the Betlach Collection.

"Art has been in my blood for as long as I can remember,” said Betlach. “ Art relays a visual ecstasy, calming and pleasure.  Art can mean something different to every individual.”

"Jill Taffet's moving projections also invoke a mood somewhere between a scientific mapping of the cosmos and the intimate quirky spaces of the inner mind. Her abstract digital projection Cosmic Ancestry uses light and sound to invoke the ever changing and dynamic aspect of the cosmos reframed into a spatial installation. The personal and phenomenological nature of her work seems to suggest the ways in which forces of nature are ultimately experienced as intimate and subjective encounters by each individual."*

Cosmic Ancestry was selected to be exhibited at Light Assembly, Verge Art Miami Beach. Verge Art Fair is an international exposition of new contemporary and emerging art held annually concurrent with Art Basel Miami Beach. Light Assembly is a video art, film and architecture exposition program. 

The goal of Light Assembly is to combine large-scale video art projection with the citywide canvas of Miami Beach and mainland Miami’s modern architectural marvels and historic landmarks. 

The combination of architecture and video art proposed by Light Assembly will allow a hybrid art form to emerge, one that reinterprets and reimagines the public space of the cities where we live and work.
