EXTRAVAGANZA extended bio:

Naval Cassidy

is an instant cinema artist who works with groups Stackable Thumb and Naval Cassidy and the Hands of Orlak, a new group that combines live video with live percussion. His video works and performances have traveled the world; most recently in Berlin, Ottowa, Dallas, and Hamburg.

In 1993, Cassidy won a Jerome Foundation grant to create a world wide web site called "The Miserable Racetrack" that was at the time one of the few web based artworks. Recently, he began doing gallery shows and small performances at the Williamsburg Front Room. He calls this chamber video, trying to emphasize the possibilities of small intimate exhibitions/performances for up to four people at a time.
