My knitted-circuit artwork, Electronic Damask
, was in a gallery show, NoFi, at Chicago Artists Coalition, October 24 - Nov 13. The piece was a collaborative effort, put together through the volunteer efforts of close to two dozen PS1 members. PS1 really represented at the Oct 24 opening, and I managed to drag most of us in front of the camera for a group photo with the artwork. (Thanks to Everett for the photo!)
closed, Electronic Damask was tapped for another show, Technologic, opening tonight in Pilsen, from 6 - 10pm
So last night we drove the piece straight from one gallery to the next. Technologic
"celebrates making art through technology". It features some amazing stuff made with 3D printers, LCD screens, CNC watercolor painting, and of course a certain knitted e-textile.
The gallery, Chicago Art Department, is located at 1932 W Halsted
in East Pilsen's Chicago Art District (#8 Halsted bus runs right by it). Tonight's opening coincides with the district's 2nd Fridays gallery night
, so there will be other openings all over the neighborhood.
You can find preview photos
of the show on the facebook page. Full info is below. The show runs until December 6.
curated by Chuck Przybyl
Friday, Nov 14, 6-10pm
An exhibition that celebrates making art through technology. Work featured will include robotic drawing, 3D printing, laser cutting, textile circuitry, algorithmic art, image slicing, circuit bending, and prosthetics. Although often unsung – artists having access to new technologies has historically pushed and propelled creative endeavors. The exciting new technologies of today have been pushing the overall culture of DIY and propelling the Maker Movement. This is a participatory culture that embraces tools and empowers masses of people to innovate and create. Technologic explores and showcases not only how art is currently being produced with new tools, but how fringe technologies can be used in progressive and cutting edge ways.
Viewers also have an opportunity to “go deeper” to gain further insight through series of discussions and workshops as well information on the processes at the exhibit.
Technologic is curated by Chuck Przybyl for Chicago Art Department.
