Spy Hop Productions: Sonic Squeeze
Cooperate. Communicate. Collaborate. Buzz words of the 21st Century. In theory, it’s what we’re all doing, but in the lightning fast world we live in, these ideas often get left by the wayside in the effort to “just get it done.” At Spy Hop Productions, collaborate is a word students often get sick of hearing, but it’s an idea so ingrained in the way Spy Hop works, that staff and students can’t imagine a day without it. Film needs music, game design needs sound, musicians need recording. Art is interdependent. In that spirit, consider SONIC SQUEEZE a collaboration test, a 21st century mash-up of video games, drum machines and tone makers. Play the game to create sounds from one of three stations – but work together with other participants to get all three games to create your own song. A digital media experiment, SONIC SQUEEZE invites visitors to play an interactive game that celebrates the collaborative nature of everything Spy Hop does. Created by Interactive Design Mentor Chris Manfre, Musical Arts Mentor Jeremy Chatelain and Audio Program Mentor Alain Koffi Sessi with help from their students. Exhibition held in the New Genres Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
Stephanie Leitch: Untitled Apogee
Untitled Apogee is part of a series that pulls inspiration from the aesthetic value of images, architecture, and realities in the local dominant culture of Salt Lake City. Drawing on the architecture of church spires, this installation explores the space between construction and gravity as way to reconsider the heavenward thrust of the traditional steeple form. Leitch employs fabric, string and video projections to create an inverted topography, marking the precise location of 617 steeples of LDS chapels and temples located in the Salt Lake Valley. She then extends and amplifies these points to negotiate the interaction of cultural environment and geography. By reversing the upward thrust of the steeple form and anchoring the heavens to the weight of the earth, Untitled Apogee reveals the tension and pull between the ground plane and its limits. Exhibition held in the Projects and Locals Only Gallery spaces., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
Stephanie Wilde: Harmed
Stephanie Wilde: Harmed is about the greed of the few, and its devastating effects on the many. Through the delicate beauty of her intimately detailed ink, acrylic, and gold leaf paintings, Stephanie Wilde examines past and recent events that have resulted in a crisis of confidence in our corporate leaders and economic system. Depicting the debauchery and excess of those in power, Harmed is about loss: moral, financial, and perhaps most disheartening, loss of faith in the corporate world. Exhibition held in the Street Gallery space., Digital image files converted from Raw file format to TIFF using Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Bridge.
Stephen Schultz: Paintings and Drawings
In viewing this exhibition, what is immediately apparent is that Schultz's paintings are over the top in the best sense of dramatic presentation. The scale of the largest paintings seem bigger than life, setting for mythic narration, where no painted form or gesture is lacking in meaning. If we equate these paintings to that of the theatrical stage, then his props are those of the painter's studio of the dream, and the painted gestures are those of the evolution of the self and the yearning for human interconnectedness. Exhibition held in the Main Gallery space., TIFF image scanned at 600 dpi from the original using an Epson Expression 10000 XL scanner. PDF created with Adobe Acrobat.
