ONE exhibition at Museum of Science & Industry

Come check out two pieces from my recent fashion show at the ONE exhibition at the Tampa Museum of Science & Industry (MOSI).

ONE Art Exhibition
January 29 - February 26, 2010
The opening reception will take place on Friday, January 29th at 7 P.M.

MOSI will be hosting the ONE exhibition in the second floor ARC Gallery. ONE is a multimedia art exhibition that explores the concept of “one”. “One”, as a number, refers to the integer before two and after zero. It could also be perceived as unity or an ideological force, such as narcissism, capitalism or monotheism. Many facets explore the singular; a sole aim, a single life, a solitaire game.

Admission to the exhibition is included in MOSI general admission. The ARC Gallery is located on MOSI's 2nd floor and surrounds the IMAX® Dome Theatre.

Now Published in Rainy Day Activities Book

Cool news - I can now say I've been published in the UK!

The field guide from Three Mouth-Light Arrays to Counter Frightful Darkness, a collaborative piece I worked on with Phil McCollam, is being published in The Wild Pansy Press Book of Rainy Day Activities, and will be available for free at "Crunchtime2010"

The Wild Pansy Press has produced a publication in which a range of contributors make concrete suggestions for new cultural activities in a Post-Crunch society, with an emphasis on the practical, the cheap and the sustainable.  You can read more about this exciting project, and the artists involved at this link.

"Crunchtime2010" is a festival taking place in the City of York, UK, January 29th - February 6th, 2010.  Global issues and concerns are increasingly on the minds of everyone.  Using a variety of venues as galleries and the city's sites and streets for projects, "Crunchtime2010" offers a snapshot of artists’ responses to the issues of living in the early 21st century.  Read more at this link.
