Premier issue of Columbus’s newest online magazine, AI The Artists Interview

ColmanInterview_FuseFactoryLogo

Alison Colman is the Director of The Fuse Factory, a media arts incubator taking shape amidst the local intersection of art, technology, industry and education. The Fuse Factory was begun in 2008, with the expressed purpose to function as an incubator for innovation, interaction, collaboration, critical thought, diversity, and artistic exploration.

How could I not be intrigued? Indeed. In the month of October alone, The Fuse Factory is offering workshops in Flash Animation, Scratch (creative programming for kids), Paperduino, Actionscript, and Stop Motion Animation! And they are all incredibly affordable, for all of us blue collar, or no collar, creatives.

VITALforms is a collective comprised of Cassandra Troyan and Nicole Langille.

On September 26 they [will] float through the sky in a hot-air balloon in an act that utilizes collected texts, poems, letters and improvised speech to make an amplified conversation between two bodies. Situated in close proximity to each other in the balloon basket and at a distance with viewers positioned on the ground, this action examines the vulnerability inherent in speaking, the ways we communicate emotion, and the disconnections made between us–no matter how close or far apart from one another.

Viewers on the ground choose to continue in the conversation as they chase (or not) VITALforms, negotiating with the limitations of moving across the earth’s surface in opposition to the drifting words and unrestricted motion of the two bodies in the hot-air balloon basket, apart together.

This action is part of the Descent to Revolution rolling exhibition, through the Bureau for Open Culture at CCAD.
