Carlin Wing is an artist and first year doctoral student in Media, Culture and Communication at NYU. She received her AB in Visual and Environmental Studies and Social Anthropology from Harvard and her MFA in Photography and Media from CalArts. Her current work brings together three disciplines—photography, anthropology and athletics—to address colonial histories, globalization and the potential for individual bodies to assert agency within overdetermined structures. Wing has presented photography, video, installation, performance, writing and lectures in national and international contexts. Recently, she has lectured at the Birmingham Museum of Art; drafted a proposal for a collaborative MFA program in Nashville; organized Bizarre Animals, an evening of contemporary art interventions at the Harvard Museum of Natural History; performed at the Media, Culture, and Communication graduate conference; and presented Hitting Walls (v.XV): Making a Ball, a ball-making workshop, at Machine Project, Los Angeles.

Pedro Juan Vidal is a video-artist based in Brooklyn, New York. With an undergraduate degree in film studies, Pedro came to study his Master’s in Film & Media Studies at the New School with an interest in cultural studies and aesthetic critique. His work explores everyday life in its construction and assemblage. Kino-Made, the project which he brings to Critical Themes, transforms the construction and assemblage of cinema into a school of thought. Kino-Made investigates the possibility of an egalitarian discourse between the the artist and spectator through the cinematic object. Vidal’s videos can be found here.
99 is completing his Masters in Media Studies this summer. He has designed an interactive game which produces Sol LeWitt styled videos using Sudoku (http://rootjam.com/widgletville/). He also produced a user guided documentary of Ernst Benkert, Next! (www.ernstgrid.com). When toggling between jargon and titillation, 99 wonders if and if so how much he has wasted his years learning to love the mediocre and how he might measure such a thing.
For the last seven years Lukas Brasiskis has worked in film education, theory and production. In 2005, after earning his bachelor degree in Vilnius University (Lithuania), he was among the founders of the first non-government Film and Media Education Center (www.menoavilys.org) in Lithuania. There he worked on implementation of a number of film education projects and reviewed films in Lithuanian cinema-devoted magazines and on Lithuanian National TV. Since then Lukas has been contributing to the biggest film devoted magazine in Lithuania “Cinema” (“Kinas”). In 2006 Lukas was one of the directors (together with Rugile Bardziukaite and Dovydas Petravicius) of the experimental documentary “K City”, which received The Best Youth Documentary Award in the Lithuanian contest organized by Goethe institute and was selected to be screened in the International Munich Film Festival for Film Schools among other international film festivals. In 2009 Lukas has received Fulbright Scholarship and currently he is pursuing MA degree in Film and Media Studies Program at the New School University. In New York City Lukas continues to focus his attention on film theory, in particular on the temporal aspect of moving images and their exceptional rapport with reality. Lukas also creatively examines film as he produces his theory-and-practice based master’s thesis on “Cinematic Realism beyond Representation”. As a part of his thesis Lukas has also worked on three-channel video installation “any-space-whatever” (http://aswnewyork.tumblr.com) as well as on a creative documentary “Moving Memories”.
