Last night was the open house for The Bruce Heavin & Lynda Weinman Alumni Center at Art Centers South Campus, 1111 S. Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena. The video wall which is an interactive portfolio of alumni work Is fantastic.
Sou Fujimoto: Futures of the Future is closing soon at Japan House in Los Angeles. At a time when hyper-realistic renderings and video walk-thrus of unbuilt spaces are the norm—it was refreshing to look at architectural models made from found objects which were used to explore concepts. Potato chips will never be the same for me.
I experienced the Robolight Art Installation by Kenny Irwin Jr in Palm Springs and enjoyed being visually overwhelmed—Imagine Burning Man, Day of the Dead, and Santa Land—mixed together with a dash of seasoning by Tim Burton, Vincent Price and Elvira. Kenny is a genius in creating art from found objects.
