Art Contests Accepted Artists
While visiting Detroit, we were amazed at the sights of abandoned structures dotting the landscape on a bone chilling post-thanksgiving Sunday afternoon, a voyeuristic sun casting an indiscreet over-exposing gaze, weaning off the intoxicants from the days before, we sneaked into an abandoned slaughterhouse, and as Katherin took her clothes off I snapped.
In the small rural town where Massimo grew up, a group of boys – of which Massimo was one – had a not so secret stash of pornography magazines stored away in an abandoned farmhouse , here is our attempt at documenting the materialized dreams of a young man 30 years after.
When not coding or making documentaries, Massimo and Katherin like to play with artistic expressions using different mediums. Katherin Hervey is a multimedia artist and activist currently based in Seattle, Washington. She was the Publisher and Editor-In-Chief of Shades of Contradiction, a nationally distributed arts and culture magazine dedicated to promoting critical thinking and creative action; and has produced, directed and art-directed short documentary and narrative films, including The Cocktail Waitress for PBS broadcast, Bob vs. The Incucbus, Best Documentary, Vancouver Film School Festival, and Her Urge (Art Director) Best Short Film, Sydney Mardi Gras Film Festival and Outstanding Women’s Short, Dallas Out Takes Festival. She currently produces work with her partner Massimo Bardetti under Raw Love Productions, a multimedia production ensemble dedicated to visual storytelling with social and artistic value. When not taking photos of each other and the world around them, they produce a feature-length documentary titled The Prison Within. Massimo Bardetti is a digital artist with over fifteen years of experience in the technology field. He was a key contributor to the first successful large-scale deployment of studio certified digital cinema systems in the country. He worked with major Hollywood studios, exhibitors and standard bodies to advance the digital cinema standard now in use. He currently resides in Seattle where he produces work with his partner Katherin Hervey under Raw Love Productions, a multimedia production ensemble dedicated to visual storytelling with social and artistic value. When not taking photos of each other and the world around them, they produce a feature-length documentary titled The Prison Within.
