Arthur Liou: Improbable Waves 

In the video "The Crossing," rolling waves of water rise and fall in slow motion. If you stare at this high-def motion picture long enough, you may notice something odd about these waves. The blue-on-black color patterns may seem too "improbable," too painterly. In fact, these are not real waves at all but moving images rendered with 3-D software. In another video, "Maelstrom," a storm appears to blow over what resembles a desert landscape filmed from high above. It is, however, another simulation. In these three videos and seven prints (directly related to the video work), Liou explores an interior mindscape. Liou, who is associate professor of digital art at IU Bloomington, states that his video work is an opportunity "to reflect on [his] personal experience with life's tragedy." If this show (featuring sound compositions by Richard Cornell and Yingfang Shen) doesn't somehow affect your own interior landscape, at least it'll expose you to emerging possibilities in the world of visual arts.
