My work is my story told, it is a direct reflection of the constant questioning of the; who I am, what and where is home, and why I am here. It is the mirror image of my life, my geographic locations, my history, my present, my environments and my memories. I work and live between Iran and America, and in this process of living and working in between these two borders the work takes shape. I collect things; objects, bits and pieces of life, of memories, of history, from both countries, and I create pieces that tell stories. Through my work I am recording history, my history. (Sara Rahbar, 2010)

The multiple series "o.t._#900, o.t._#700, o.t._#500" by Julie Monaco are closely linked to her previous works; they are to be seen as a continuation of these, because they use to a great extent the same calculation processes of Benoit Mandelbrot ("rendering" is the optical evaluation of a three-dimensional model or a two-dimensional pixel image by means of computer-supported processes /algorithms) as in the earlier works. But they are related in external appearance only to a qualified degree, since they integrate another method, encapsulated in the term "non-photorealistic rendering" (npr). The new works refer directly to the previous series by exposing and revealing processes upon which the earlier works are based.

Andreas Leikauf recycles words, which puts the recycling of pictures taken from newspapers and magazines on a new level: empty catch phrases are unmasked, high-gloss pictures begin to crack, bucolic settings wobble and wilt, customary things are filtered and become obscure, and what is simple, unspectacular, actually a detail, is made significant. The letters and words seem to float in space, or are woven into parts of a painting, such as pieces of paper, scrolls, jackets, T-shirts, ties or other garments. Leikauf presents contemporary emblems to the onlooker; yet their delightful appearance is offset by the juveniles that he shows. This is what the resonance contains which bounces off these mostly two-colored pictures: a sad emptiness and the advice not to be gullible. "Don't trust them" could be a title for a picture by Andreas Leikauf.
