Spectacle: Augmented Reality

We are honored to be part of the debut show of Spectacle Art Group, Nothing Is What It Seemsat Gallery 2622 in Wauwatosa. Spectacle uses technology to enhance visual art. For this show, Spectacle will use Augmented Reality, which allows an artist to overlay extra content on their artwork when scanned in a smart device.

We joined artists John Kowalczyk, Jeff Redmon, Anja Notanja Sieger, Dena Nord to create original pieces for the show. We worked closely with design agency Odvant Creative to create the Augmented Reality experiences. John Korom, the owner of Gallery 2622, generously donated the exhibition space.

Opening reception for the show is at Gallery 2622 on February 3, 2017 from 6pm to 9pm. The show is available to view by appointment through the rest of the month. For more information, visit www.spectacleartgroup.com

Bass Structures on PBS

We are very excited to continue to hear from everyone who has been seeing our interview on PBS stations across the country!  We want to give a very special shout out to MPTV‘s The Arts Page for the production work and initial airing.  You all rock!

And, here are the finished pieces from that day

Bass Structures is on our way to Create 2015, an Art and Technology Festival celebrating the cross section between visual art and innovative technology.  These are our kind of people, and we already feel at home.  If you happen to be in Pittsburgh for the event, please stop and check out our booth.  We will be using the same principles that many of you are used to with the hypnotic magic of the effects of a single frequency in paint.  We will, however, be stepping it up with what we have learned from our experimentation with music.

If you’re trapped in other parts of the country, don’t worry, we will definitely be bringing this to you soon.  Wherever you are, please send us your messages of support and stay tuned to social media to see how the event and the paintings progress!  If you haven’t already, please go to the facebook page for voting for Peoples Choice Awards.  All you have to do is like our post on the wall 😀

We would like to send a huge thanks to the Pittsburgh Technology Council for the Fellowship allowing us to participate in this year’s event!

Unicorns Apprenti

Weekly live art at Via Downer presented by Timothy Westbrook Studio

October 23rd – January 16th

The show begins with a series of Timothy’s weavings and empty frames.  During the following weeks. Week by week one apprentice will create live art to hang in the spaces occupied previously by an empty frame or weaving. In the final week, the work of artists collaborating with Timothy (Bass Structures) will occupy the wall that stayed empty. They will have a video of their performances at the reception to be held January 16th. During the reception a group of people will be wearing the clothing Timothy created out of Bass Structure’s “art waste.” Garments will primarily be vests and tailcoats in a turn of the 20th century style.

Like the facebook page for info as we go and bios on the artists.
