3D shadows of 4D art

BY HENRY SEGERMAN
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mathematics and Art might seem to be about as different as two disciplines can be. But they share an affinity for fictional worlds: both mathematicians and artists are permitted to ask "What if" questions, that aren't required to have anything to do with the real world. I'll try to explain a sculpture based on one of these questions: "What if space had more than three dimensions?"

A collector of sounds

BY WALTER KELLY
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Nature, music, art, literature, architecture, and technology all serve as inspirations, setting craft into motion. Guitar is the principal medium of composition and expression. Learning begins and continues with listening and communing in a vocational manner. Formal studies establish the language and practical application. My name is Walter Kelly. I am a collector of sounds.

Tending the Roots and Closing the Loops

BY MARY RICHELLE WILSON
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

Mary Richelle Wilson delves into her creative process and life philosophy, as she builds a picture of the personal ethic that she strives to apply in all areas of her life. She actively pursues in her own life the beauty that nature inspires, a healthy human connection to our home (the earth as a whole and the local ecosystems), sustainable life choices, intentional community and relationships, self-expression; and above all, personal growth. She finds great significance in the innumerable connections that bind us all together, and goes about life with the intention of being part of and creating strong, mutually beneficial, bonds with other creatives through a patient and sustainable path toward deep and meaningful relationships in localized communities.

Deep Magic

BY NICHOLAS NELSON
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

The power of place and people is transcendent. Experimental juxtapositions of the two provide unique opportunities for growth. This relationship is explored traveling rim to rim through the Grand Canyon in the company Woody Guthrie, with help from Robert Zimmerman.

the words in my head

BY KIM TOSCANO HOLMES
@ VOL 3 ON APR 02, 2019

We begin with chaos, the incessant drumming of a restless mind. A journey through emotion follows – feeling to the nth degree. Deconstruction seeks order in the confusion. Negotiation hatches a sense of reconciliation. Words emerge, carrying a fresh understanding and myriad new questions. This, for me, is writing.

  • Katrina Klempa

    My name is Katrina Klempa and I am a young creative based in both Tulsa and Stillwater, Oklahoma. I aspire to find a career where I am creatively and intellectually challenged. Starting out interested in becoming an animator, I spent a lot of time in high school attending technical school classes in 3D design and animation. I learned how to use modeling, rendering, and video-editing software. Through this process, I realized that I loved being able to be apart of someone's- a stranger's- experience in the world by creating art. To be able to affect someone for the better without even meeting them is an incredible thing. My mind wandered back to the architectural plans and projects my mother would always study as I was growing up, and I turned to architecture shortly after entering my senior year of high school. I am currently pursuing a Bachelor's degree of Architecture at Oklahoma State University. I'm set to graduate December, 2020. I'm looking to help benefit the community of Stillwater through being apart of Pecha Kucha movement in my city. I'm very excited about the outcome and prep of it!

  • Shoko Robinson

    After worked as an application developer/web programmer over 10 years in Japan and America, Shoko is currently seeking ways to work with her hands and heart. She is a weaver, gardener, bookkeeper, photographer, problem solver, cat lover, and coffee addict.
