"Deus Ex Machina," "Hliehhan," "The Book," and Me
BY JIM JENKINS

ON AUG 11, 2016
Commissioned by the Aurora (Illinois) Public Library to produce a piece of public sculpture that illustrates the intersection of art and technology, James G. Jenkins produced three distinct yet related works of art: an outdoor public sculpture, an indoor “time machine / desk,” and a large medieval manuscript-like, artist-made book of collages. The latter work, which the artist describes as “graphplotfictionfacttotems,” illustrates the journey of creation, fabrication, and installation of the artworks at the library. It is an intentional, repetitiously redundant, self-referential echo.

Nichole Cross is an introvert who is totally uncomfortable summarizing herself in a bio for promotional purposes, but she realizes that this is a necessary evil to share her love of design and maker culture. Nichole would prefer to change the world anonymously, but can’t currently bankroll that approach.
Nichole is also an industrial designer who likes to work on interdisciplinary teams, and an advocate for the STEAM approach to education (integrating Art/Design into Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematical curriculums). She gets excited about story, technology, materials, and clever things.
She is currently working with EmBe to organize a STEAM based Maker Fair for girls ages 8-13 years old this fall, in the Sioux Falls area. Her former life consisted of designing inflatable things like parade floats and military decoys.
Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975
BY CHARLES L. DAVIS, II, PH.D.
@ VOL 17
ON SEP 15, 2016
"We started with several books that looked at the brownstone as a site of intervention."
In Building Black Utopias: Modeling the Architectural Principles of African American Literature, 1960-1975 from PechaKucha Buffalo vol. 17, Charles L. Davis, II, Ph.D., Assistant Professor of Architecture at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte, shows works from his recent exhibition project, Building Black Utopias, and discusses the literature that served as inspiration.
The Building Black Utopias project combines the tools of the architect, the historian and the literary critic to recover the historical contributions of African American writers to architectural utopian thought. It specifically examines the role of literary depictions of place in June Jordan, Amiri Baraka, Paule Marshall and Angela Davis’ writings. Davis argues that each authors’ rhetorical manipulations of the built environment operates on the same level as architectural utopian thought insofar as both mediums created rich, alternative depictions of modernist space to liberate the architect’s imagination. The final exhibit translates the spatial ideas of literature into drawings, models and other ephemera.
