Jesse Pearlman Karlsberg is a sound artist, composer, and shape note singer whose work explores the intersections of technology and tradition. His output encompasses installation, music for live performance, tunebooks, web design, audio tours, and transmission arts. Jesse’s current work investigates the history and practice of Sacred Harp singing and the geological, social, technological, and religious history of upstate New York. Jesse is the cofounder of the “Society for a Subliminal State” and editor-in-chief of the Society's newsletter, “Subliminal Statements.” His work has been performed and exhibited at art and historical venues internationally and throughout the Northeast.

Deb Todd Wheeler is a sculptor, inventor, and media artist. Using the vernacular of the 19th century, a time when art and science were more closely linked, she investigates alternative avenues for power that reflect our growing concern with sustainability today. She is a recipient of a LEF Contemporary Work Fund Artist grant in inter-media, a Massachusetts Cultural Council Grant in Sculpture and Installation, and the Artist Resource Trust Grant. She is on the Graduate Faculty of the Art Institute of Boston, and also teaches in the 3D department at Massachusetts College of Art.
