Mata is Meta-Data: Mapping the Anthropolithic Age

PRESENTED ON APR 10, 2015
IN HONOLULU @ VOL 23

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.

Rap Mapping and the Everyday

BY LIZ TESTON
@ VOL 12 ON AUG 19, 2014

This conceptual project is steeped in both community engagement and storytelling as an investigative tool. As studio critic Jennifer Bonner outlined in ATL: A Guide to the Dirty South, there is a rivalry in east coast and west coast design, like the rivalry between east coast and west coast rap. The importance of cultural identity and community through narrative are essential in the South - so much that legends are accepted simply because they they convey moral lessons. There is a paradox in storytelling and fact, but not in legitimacy. Liz Teston explores the role of placemaking within the cultural context of Atlanta and it's rap history.

Spatial Memory Mapping

BY LYLA CATELLIER
@ VOL 8 ON MAR 04, 2016

Lyla Catellier gives good directions! At PechaKucha Night Brooklyn Volume 8, Lyla put her 7 siblings to the test - a test of spatial memory mapping. With 5/7 siblings worth of maps of her hometown, Lyla explores the wonders of the hippocampus.

Lyla is a lady living in Chelsea NYC. She currently directs public programs and events at Columbia University GSAPP and was once called a swiss army knife. She is a logistics maverick, and has always wanted someone to refer to her as a maverick, and at PK Brooklyn Volume 8, we did!

Visual storytelling

BY MO ASSEM
@ VOL 22 ON JAN 24, 2018

Mr.Beam is a Projection art Studio that expands the square boundaries of visual storytelling by combining projection and animation principles. We strongly believe that with the right creative approach, ordinary objects and architectural artefacts can be transformed into extraordinary forms of media. Resulting in unique, location based narratives with a poetic and theatrical touch. Driven by the possibilities of projection mapping, we passionately push this philosophy to the limit. Throughout the past years, we've had the privilege of showcasing our award-winning work internationally and to work with many different parties in the cultural and commercial sector.
