Over the past year I have been working on an installation in conjunction with Northern Lights' Art(ists) On the Verge fellowship. Five artists are brought together to develop independent projects/bodies of work that engage art and technology in some sense. This was an awesome opportunity and I'd highly recommend it to anyone interested in this kind of work. Special thanks to Jon Henderson for his coding mastermind; Piotr Szyhalski, Steve Dietz and the Northern Lights crew for their facilitation and project support; Eric Avery, Torre Edahl, Josh McGarvey and Liza Sylvestre who each have awesome projects in the show; and The Soap Factory and Kate Arford.
The exhibition is running from March 12th–April 17th, 2016.
Gallery Hours: Thursday & Friday, 2-8pm; Saturday & Sunday, 12-5pm
Artist Discussion: April 16th, 3-5pm
Also listen to the super awkward Soapcast Interview here. Sort of, Kind of. Yikes.
From The Soap Factory:
This exhibition features new work from five Minnesota-based artists. AOV7 is an intensive, year-long, mentor-based fellowship program for emerging artists working experimentally at the intersection of art, technology, and digital culture.
One of the fundamental concepts defining the mission of the Art(ists) On the VergeFellowship is the commitment to emerging artists whose practice often falls outside of and in between the traditional notions of media or disciplines. The Art(ists) On the Verge fellows are no exception. Their work at The Soap Factory engages with a broad spectrum of ideas.
