Mary Tsiongas, Chair of Art and Art History at UNM will be giving a 15 minute presentation on her artwork.  Mary does video works that mostly hang on the wall. Using green screen techniques, characters appear on the screen to erase, alter and reveal these iconic artworks. Mary's vision relates the interdependence of plants, animals and humans with the interrelationships of art forms through contemporary media. Informed by early film history, these works are captivating scenarios that allude to childhood fables and folklore. There is no need to register for this; just look around for Mary.
