On the 28th of March 2017 I attended the Fosdick Nelson gallery, at Alfred University. They were showing an exhibition called Nuclear Lawn Bowling: Sun at Midnight. The exhibition took place between March 1st and April 1st.
The Exhibition includes works from faculty of division of dimensional studies. These artists include Sarah Blood, Diane Cox, Karen Donnellan, Brett Hunter, Coral Lambert, Paul Higham, Hiromi Takizawa, John Hogan, Whitney hubs, Andrew Oesch and Angus Powers. Some pieces in this exhibition are collaborations. Some of the artworks that drew my eye were Diane Cox’s the crone’s odyssey (2017), Fallen Block Island (Heavenly Body) (2017) made by Paul Higham, and Coral Lambert, The Control_YTP (2017) made by Sarah Blood and Angus Powers and apart of the darkCANDYchromaticSeries, and glass in space/dachshund on the moon (2014) made by Angus Powers and Hiromi Takizawa.
A lot of the works from this exhibition can relate a lot of to the class Interactive Design. In the piece the crone’s odyssey by Diane Cox, it uses three monitors. Each monitor has a headset, a controller, and a chair with a deer like fabric around the chair. When using the controller and headset you can control a camera in the wilderness that may or may not be real time. In the class students do have the ability to program games, and what can be controlled.
Another work that can relate a lot to the class is The Control_YTP (2017) made by Sarah Blood and Angus Powers and apart of the darkCANDYchromaticSeries. This work is very strong in color. They use secondary colors. The piece also has a very strong balance. The eye is drawn to the center of the piece; this would make it the focal point. The Students in interactive design make websites and this would be a good piece on what a good logo may or may not look like.
