Scarlet Electric is the collaborative work of Rachelle Beaudoin and Jeanne Jo. Recent graduates of the Rhode Island School of Designs Digital+Media department, their work together responds to the Internet and Internet Culture. They create physical manifestations of online spaces - wearable, technology-based art objects that initiate conversation and communication between individuals.
Most recently their work has focused on connection and interaction through gift-giving and small gestures - including having tea parties in a public park and giving free massages in on the street in New York. These interactions result in humorous situations, awkward interactions or simply pleasant experiences.
Mary Burge grew up in Mississippi, a place where eccentricity and fundamentalism were appreciated in equal measure. In 2003, she received her B.A. in studio art from the University of Texas at Austin, specializing in photography and video, with minors in Spanish and Technology, Literacy and Culture. After graduating, she lived in Europe and New York City, working a multitude of jobs in the photo industry.
Her first love was reportage photography, but now her practice has expanded to include performance, video, sound, installation, and digital media. Thematically her work explores the conflict between modern and postmodern storytelling, and analog and digital technology. For several years she have pursued an oral history project, recording on various media the stories of my older relatives in rural Mississippi. This is part of her greater lifelong goal to preserve and understand culture loss in non-mainstream American communities.
