Video Art & Projection Design

Ross Karre is a video artist based in New York City. His pri­mary focus is on com­bining media, including clas­sical per­cus­sion per­for­mance, elec­tronics, the­ater, moving image, visual art, and lighting design. He designs inte­grated, moving images that emerge from an aes­thetic foun­da­tion in Amer­ican exper­i­mental music as well as that of the Euro­pean avant garde. His pro­jec­tion design and video art has been pre­sented in such pres­ti­gious venues as the BBC Scot­land (Glasgow Con­cert Halls), Miller The­atre (NYC), The Park Ave. Armory (NYC), the Kennedy Center for the Per­forming Arts (DC), BIMhuis (Ams­terdam), and the National Gallery of Art (Wash­ington, DC).
