Melanie Hofmann graduated with a BFA in Textiles from the California College
of the Arts in 1996. Her home and studio are located in Berkeley.  She had
the privilege of attending one of the original Bay Area "Free" Schools,
Pinel, in the Sixties. At Pinel and later living in Berkeley as a teenager,
she was immersed in the Psychedelic culture of the era. This influence has
manifested itself in her digital video work that will be featured at a
screening on July 19, from 7 - 8 pm at Expressions Gallery in Berkeley. One
of the films in that show, "Obsession" recently won a prize at the Twin
Rivers Media Festival. Some of her digital video work can be viewed at

Melanie started out using digital technology to do the design process for
her printed textiles. She uses the scanner extensively in her digital work,
scanning in such things as leaves, flowers, crystals, and photographs which
are then transformed in Photoshop. Melanie's projected artwork was featured
in the Shotgun Players performance of Arabian Night in the spring of 2005.
In other media, Melanie has received awards from the Taegu International
Textile Design competition and from Manhattan Arts International. Her work
in textiles, ceramics, and photography can be purchased at

Steve Capper, a musician, has collaborated with Melanie on a number of
projects. He composes his pieces while viewing the work. He played keyboard,
drums, and guitar as part of the punk rock/reggae music scene in London in
the Seventies, and wrote songs in these genres. He got his first synthesizer
in the early Nineties. He uses a Roland Fantom 6 synthesizer for composing
as well as live performance.
