ARTIST: Breuning and Orkeny
BIOS: Olaf Breuning was born in Switzerland. Working primarily with installation, video, and photography, his work draws from advertising, television and music videos.

Ivan Orkeny was born in Hungary. A recent MFA graduate of Columbia University, his animation, installations, and digital works explore the relationship between the perception of historical knowledge and architectural memory. Orkeny is currently collaborating with Alexander White on a large-scale multimedia piece that involves various 3D, and 2D applications and inventive animation techniques. His work has been exhibited in venues such as: Kunsthochschule Kassel, Germany; LeRoy NeimanGallery, New York; and WRO05 International Media Art Biennale, Poland. He lives in New York.
