Collaborative intermedia artists, Evelina Domnitch and Dmitry Gelfand, have exhibited in our Engaging Technology II exhibition at BSU’s DOMA and also performed in our Charles Brown Planetarium.

Dmitry Gelfand (Russia) and Evelina Domnitch (Belarus) create sensory immersion environments that merge physics, chemistry, and computer science with uncanny philosophical practices. Current findings, particularly regarding wave phenomena, are employed by the artists to investigate questions of perception and perpetuity. Such investigations are salient because the scientific picture of the world, which serves as the basis for contemporary thought still cannot encompass the unrecordable workings for consciousness.

Having dismissed the use of recording and fixative media, Domnitch and Gelfand’s installations exist as ever-transforming phenomena offered for observation. Because these rarely seen phenomena take place directly in front of the observer without being intermediated, they often serve to vastly extend the observer’s sensory envelope. The immediacy of this experience allows the observer to transcend the illusory distinction between scientific discovery and perceptual expansion. Domnitch received her MA in philosophy from Belorussian State University and Gelfand received his MFA in film/video from New York University.
