October is coming, and with that, our one year anniversary (party details coming soon). As many of you know, we are expanding, and working towards our mission of having a space where you can make anything, big or small. Lately, in addition to all of this, we’ve been giving some attention to a few of our local artists and helping them make some awesome things.
SuttonBeresCuller have been working in open studio at the Henry Art Museum and building Panoptos, an art installation (giant robot) that will be unveiled and publicly interactive on October 1st for the Henry’s Fall Open House. We have been quietly helping, and even got a chance to get out of the basement (and into the Henry’s) for some robot troubleshooting, it’s only a few frames in their super cool build video, but it was a blast to be a part of their awesome project. We have heard the Henry Open Houses are a really good time, so we won’t be offended if you spend your Friday night playing with their robots instead of ours.
What this means is that in addition to our normal chaos, there will be bona-fide art insanity as Meghan goes through our toolboxes, gets deep with the machines and installs a unique creation in our space that could only have been made in our space.
Meghan has been hanging out at Metrix for the last couple of weeks working on set of exoskeleton arm extensions for use in Karst, her installation performance art piece. She’ll put them on and use them to set off sensors along a hallway, which in turn will cut sound elements. I can’t wait until it’s done and we can see some footage of the exoskeleton in action!
Say you have a handsome lodge or clubhouse with empty walls that are just begging to be decorated, but you feel uncomfortable hanging out with the heads of dead animals. What’s a person to do? Why, obtain a deer trophy fabricated from of rustic and animal-friendly birch, of course!
One of our regulars, Alec Wadzita, put together the design. He’s offering the smaller birch deer trophy (~22x16x17cm) for $100 and the larger birch deer trophy (~26x37x29cm) for $150. If you want to get your hands on one of these beauties, get ahold of Alec at vegantrophies(at)gmail.com.
