Miami Art Museum and Freedom Tower
Canadian artists Cardiff and Miller pierce the hearts and alter the spectator's consciousness by continually breaking open internal visionary worlds and fantasies in the eleven multi-media installations which compose "The Killing Machine and Other Stories " whose U.S. Premiere in Miami presents a retrospective of their work from 1995 to 2007.
The Euphoria of a Sleepless Night
We have all suffered sleepless nights: nights of anxiety; unrequited desire; and pacing the streets alone! By contrast this fascinating and profoundly stimulating creation of the "cultural takeover" of Miami "Sleepless Night " challenged thousands of participants from Miami and visitors from innumerable cities and foreign countries to stay up for thirteen hours in an internal and environmental adventure comprised of eighty-four artistic events. Eliciting grand gaiety and quiet aesthetic contemplation the organizers produced a wildly successful street festival scattered throughout four twisting and turning zones of beautiful luminous Miami Beach.

Jewish Museum of Florida
One enters the 2007 restoration of the oldest synagogue in Miami Beach, originally built in 1929, and becomes surrounded by an airy inner-sanctuary of art! PSALMSONG, a multi- media Installation by Carol Hamoy, reveals itself as a multi-media, multi-cultural, Jewish feminist, post-modern sanctuary of fragile translucent fabric. One immediately becomes enchanted by a creation of visual poetry by artist Carol Hamoy. It's creation took three years from the first stitch to complete the work. Hamoy's work is hand-made; which she feel is enormously important in the computer era, in order for the viewer to feel the hand of the artist. By Melinda Given Guttman.
