My talented friends Kamea Hadar and Tristan Eaton recently collaborated on a mural, then they threw a party and buffed it in front of everyone! Can’t imagine spending all that time painting to buff only to turn around and immediately erase it but must have been fun for those that were there! More images below.
Thank you, thank you, thank you, to each and every one of you for sending in pencils to be part of our project with Tangible Interaction! Next week we fly out to Barcelona for the Internet Age Media festival and we’ll be using hundreds and hundreds of your pencils, mailed in from around the world, to build a sculpture out there. Stay tuned for updates!
Heads up for those in Vancouver! Tomorrow (Saturday March 14th) 2pm-4pm, we will be at Collage Collage (621 Kingsway) making pencils and you’re all invited! Kids, adults, and everyone in between! We will have pencils and art supplies there so you can just show up! It’s FREE. Come hang!
This wins two awards: Video of the Day and Best of Instagram. I can’t believe I didn’t know about Adam Carpenter’s Instagram @adamscarpenters until now – hands down my new favourite person to follow! The video he just made for Shake It Little Tina’s “Low Cut Connie” is officially my way of life, and I would like to request that it be projected onto the ceiling above my casket at my wake, thank you.
Watch the video below.
Part two of a look at how the art of today created on computers are entering the real world gallery. In this interview, we examine the X + 1 event at the Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, a night where net artists from around the world have their works projected around the vast space of it’s Rotonde architecture. Organized by Erin Gee, Benoit Palop, Sabrina Ratté and Tristan Stevens, the show selected a number of net artists who then themselves chose another creative to have their work shown (hence X + 1), noting the characteristic and importance of networking and creativity of the scene. Here we talk to Tristan about the event, and how such institutions are adapting to current creative movements.
