Mata is Meta-Data: Mapping the Anthropolithic Age
BY SOLOMON ENOS
@ VOL 23
ON APR 10, 2015
Solomon Enos received his first commission as a sixth grader, illustrating curriculum for lower grade levels at Makaha Elementary School. From there he illustrated books such as Na Akua Hawai`i (The Gods and Goddesses of Hawai`i), and The centennial edition of The Epic Tales of Hi`iakaikapoliopele to name a couple. Solomon is also known for large scale murals at various public schools and private venues. His most recent project, “Polyfantastica”, has been published and Solomon continues working on another life-long project called “Mata” that he hopes may unify all the global mythologies and theologies into the final human narrative, hosted as an International Public Game, in line with the Public Radio and Television.
What Sculpture Gives to Me, What I Hope Sculpture Can Give to Everyone
BY BILL MCGRATH
@ VOL 3
ON MAY 12, 2016
Contemplating retirement after successive careers as an attorney then city administrator in his hometown of Batavia, Illinois, Bill McGrath has begun pursuing his love for art, specifically working in metal sculpture. Sculpture, like any artistic endeavor, presents the opportunity to express oneself to others, but also requires some emotional distance to remain true to one’s visions. He also shows how public art, sculpture in particular, can add to a community’s sense of place by speaking to values, history, and universal experiences, such as fear.
Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority
BY PAUL VANOUSE
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
“I’m a bio media artist. And what that means is I work self-reflexively, with the tools and technologies of the life sciences.”
In Complicating Things: Experimenting with Authority from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Professor of Art at the University at Buffalo, Paul Vanouse, provides an overview of his work as a bio media artist. As Director of the newly created Coalesce Center for Biological Art at the University at Buffalo, Vanouse works with artists and philosophers and people who wouldn’t normally have a direct connection to do create work in a life sciences laboratory, and is actively engaged with Coalesce’s artist residency program. Vanouse’s own work has recently focused on DNA fingerprinting, removing the inherent layers of authority from DNA with an interest in the very visual representation of DNA. His recent projects, Latent Figure Protocol and Ocular Revision use molecular biology techniques to challenge “genome-hype” and to confront issues surrounding DNA fingerprinting.
