Diminishing Crown Shyness

PRESENTED ON APR 30, 2019
IN DETROIT @ VOL 37

Amanda Partridge Nordin is originally from North Carolina. She's been in Detroit for 17 years as an artist, teacher, mentor, and art collaborator. Focused on metal sculpting, Amanda has a passion for iron casting and bringing opportunities to the community.

In her presentation, Amanda explains that her goal is to bring a network of cast iron artists together. She says it takes a team to run a furnace but linking Detroit with its roots and providing individuals interested with opportunities will keep the ancient art alive.

Emily! Don't Do That!

BY EMILY PEASGOOD
@ VOL 11 ON SEP 06, 2018

"I use sound to express things that cause me frustration and joy. I find it cathartic and I find it so much fun. It makes frustrating things tolerable and fun things magical. For me, sound captures experience, truth, and memory in a way that no other sense can."

Despite the seemingly obstructive title, Emily Peasgood shows she is a risk-taking creative who throws caution to the wind (sometimes literally), experimenting with sound and social encounters, her work is original, thought-provoking and uplifting.
