One of my favorite sites is Rhizome. No joke. It is, seriously, a fantastic source to learn more about arts, technology, and emerging art movements and artists. Some of the stories and postings simply cannot be denied such as the post you’re reading now! What do you think of this piece of art?
Aptekar explores 3-dimensionality with stacks of laser-cut paperboard. Her laser-cut sculpture-objects show no evidence of the artist’s hand. First designed as virtual 3D objects in CAD software, and then translated into 2D layers of laser-cut bristol board that the artist stacks, the emphasis is on clean design and perfect, machine-executed manufacture. The effect is a sculpting of space.*
Opening Reception: Friday, August 12, 2011 7-10PM Exhibition Dates: August 12 – September 24, 2011 Gallery Hours: Friday – Saturday 12pm – 5pm
The Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) is comprised of two large-scale, interactive sculptures that are “activated” by a mobile exhibitions program. MAP brings together Peter Foucault’s Fal-Core Van and Chris Treggiari’s Mobile Store and will appear in locations throughout the Bay Area. MAP will create an autonomous exhibition space, an artistic research lab where a cross pollination of mediums and genres can occur, be accessible to the public and create strong bonds with the communities we work with. MAP events will include film screenings, visual art, performance art, live music, culinary art, and will feature local talent. In essence, we will build a temporary, creative microcosm where community and creativity can intersect and flourish. In a world where we are becoming more insular with advanced technologies, our events hope to bring residents together having positive interactions with neighbors, and their neighborhood. ~ Taken from the ‘About’ section of the MAP: Mobile Arts Platform site
