ART | "Units" 

Pixilation in photography is generally considered undesirable in the age of high-definition everything. But the group of artists showcased in "Units," currently on view at Visual Studies Workshop (31 Prince Street), flip the focus from the whole to consider the parts. Each employs the syntax of images — the pixels, frames, bits, dots, and grain — to focus on the push and pull between form and meaning. The show is held in collaboration with ImageOut, Rochester's LGBT film and video festival, and features work by contemporary artists Gregory Climer, Jessica Fenlon, Eric Fleischauer and Jason Lazarus, Dan Larkin, Patti Ambrogi, Nicky Tavares, and works from VSW's collection by Robert Heinecken, Barbara Blondeau, Bonnie Gordon, Edweard Muybridge, among others.

"Units" continues through October 22. Admission to the gallery is free, and hours are Tuesday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. For more information, call 442, 8676 or visit
