The focus of John Seefeldt's artwork is the merging of interactive and electronic media with traditional fabrication methods such as wood metal, clay, and plastics. It is informed both by research and an experiential understanding of the human experience in a contemporary media-focused culture. His most recent work leverages both virtual and augmented reality technologies to provide the viewer with an opportunity to explore their own interactions and relationships with their environment from a new perspective. Fragments of Reconstruction and Longing presents real and imagined memories, archival material, and experiential imagery to draw visitors into an exploration of the past and memories. Through the visual possibilities presented by the artist in this interactive installation the viewers may reflect upon their own remembrances, reveries, and the fluid nature of the past in one's mind.

Ron Lambert, Hidden Ship Sinking, 2014, wood, vinyl, paneling, plaster, tar, drywall, wallpaper, hair, siding, digital print, 49 ½ x 38 ½ x 90 in.

Ron Lambert's sculpture is the physical manifestation of his attempt to create an environment of beauty and perfection with the preexisting realization that reaching total perfection is futile. He makes carefully hand constructed objects that appear unfinished or deconstructed. These are to bring attention to the impermanence and fleeting nature of many of the experiences and realities of contemporary life.
