"DELTA TIME" is the mathematical expression for "change over time." 
In general, traditional  visual art is thought of as static and in 
two or three dimensions, and traditional film and video thought of 
similarly as incorporating and recording the passage of time. In 
this exhibition entitled "DELTA TIME,"  2-D and 3-D works are 
foregrounded as functions of time increments. Julianne Swartz
 creates an installation of reflected lights and actions from 
indoors and outdoors that change instantaneously, from moment
to moment, 24/7. Lambert Fernando layers his work  with a special 
coating that degrades itself daily as a result of exposure to 
changing heat, humidity, and light, gradually exposing an 
underpainting. Fred Fleisher and Jona Lagman trace their singular 
but parallel past histories and trajectories "from geeks to 
superstars" in an installation that updates itself periodically 
during the course of the exhibition. Each work in "DELTA TIME" 
deploys temporal elements in subtle, startling, and humorous ways.

Jonathan Lagman and I are focusing on our past, 
where we may have looked, or even acted like 
geeks AND in the present or future we have gone 
beyond this to the other extreme.  Jonathan is 
thinking of feelings of displacement and having 
to deal with this as a young person (thus an 
insecurity may have developed). My thoughts 
about my working-class past and who I was and 
where I am from are my central issues.  While we 
don't think of ourselves as Superstars,  we'd 
like to think that geeks can transform into 
Superstars.  Of course, there is an element of 
humor in this, but also a version of believing 
in the underdog.
This piece is about the perception of being a 
"Superstar" and the life of being a geek.  It 
is about thinking how "cool" one might be but 
looking back and realizing how "uncool" it 
really was.  The entire project is about the 
evolution of this personality into and finally 
becoming a "Superstar"; but the evolution is 
ongoing and the geekiness is underlying.  The 
focus of the project is the perception one 
might have of themselves and the perception 
that people from the outside might have on 
them---"SUPERSTAR"?
