SPECIAL CALL - EXHIBITION
When Light Takes Form
Joe Cimino is a time-based media artist whose work investigates what familiar materials and nostalgic feelings reveal about human perception and how they play a role in determining what goes unnoticed. In his work, Cimino often breaks down the conventions of the familiar formats he uses: Such as a series of film trailers that never amount to a final movie, a sound artwork that utilizes the podcast format to question its existential narrative, or a film reminiscent of a documentary that focuses on the memories embedded in a home shown by light taking form in a contained space. Through audiovisual and time-based works, Cimino brings the background to the foreground, asking us to see beyond the regular and to reflect upon the hidden histories of what goes unnoticed.
Joe Cimino is an Italian-American time-based media artist, musician, and podcaster, currently based in the United States. He holds a BFA in studio art from Rowan University and an MFA in studio art from Studio Arts College International (SACI), located in Florence, Italy. Cimino has exhibited his works in the United States and internationally, with solo and group exhibitions located in Florence, Italy and Gimpo, South Korea. His practice investigates what familiar materials and nostalgic feelings reveal about human perception and how, if at all, they play a role in determining what goes unnoticed.
