Backbreakerneckbrace is a collaborative effort between video artist Dawn Bendick and audio/visual artist Michael Haleta which continually works with collaborators to fully realize their structured audio and video endeavors. Timing and synchronization are key elements in their work placing the audio and visuals in a constant exchange of information within
pre-composed time constraints.
They have shown their work at numerous shows and events including, Tonic, NY, NY, Art Scape, Baltimore, MD, Transmissions Festival, Chicago, IL, the Back-Up Festival (Bauhaus), Weimar, Germany, and at the Whitney (Graduate Program Film Series), NY, NY.
Dawn is currently working on her MFA at Mason Gross College of the Arts and is a video professor at Mercer County Community College. Michael Haleta is a graphic designer, sound designer and professor of sound at the Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, MD. Currently they both live on the East Coast of the US (Yuck!).
