Autumn at Yale University’s Quantum Institute

I’ve just returned from an absolutely gorgeous “peak autumn” journey by rail up to New Haven, Connecticut as a recently-minted Artist in Residence at Yale University’s Quantum Institute.

Over this present academic year I’ll be collaborating with Yale students, faculty, and researchers associated with the Yale Quantum Institute (YQI) to create quantum-inspired artworks. This program is organized by YQI manager (and official rocket scientist!), Florian Carle , who created the artist residency role. I’ve impossible shoes to fill, with past residents such as Martha W Lewis and Spencer Topel . An exciting adventure to set forth on, to be sure.

The Space Between exhibition

Next Tuesday the London College of Communication (Design for Interaction and Moving Image BA students) and Nexus Interactive Arts will open their collaborative exhibition titled The Space Between . Stewdio's own Browser Pong will be among the exhibited works. Look for it on the ground floor. Please come to the opening party (open to all) on the evening of Thursday, 14 July, 18:00–23:00. In addition to drinks there will be some short talks: At 7:00pm Chris O'Reilly will discuss Nexus . Next up, at 7:40pm Stewart will deliver a quick talk titled "Advice to Young Makers" for the exhibiting graduates—but it applies just as well to those of us who've put a few years between ourselves and uni. Finally at 8:35pm Johnny Kelly and Matthew Cooper will share their I am not an artist project. The exhibition's peculiar venue is a disused 1980's office building that's just a walk from the Canary Wharf tube station: Create House, 2-4 Heron Quays, London E14 4JB . See Transport for London for help getting there.

Yale Graphic Design presents 'Catalog'

It's spring. And that means design thesis shows. Below is the invite text for the Yale School of Art 2011 Graphic Design MFA show. .

As both noun and verb, book and exhibition, CATALOG recasts the deconstructed components of finished design projects as new work. The result is an exhibition that is an exploded book, and a book that is a collapsed exhibition. CATALOG represents the work of Yale School of Art MFA candidates Lauren Adolfsen, Juan Astasio Soriano, Keri Bronk, Benjamin Critton, Lauren Francescone, Brendan Griffiths, Bona Han, Sara Hartman, Hank h. Huang, Zeynab Izadyar, Zakary Jensen, Zachary Klauck, Michael Mikulec, Mylinh Trieu Nguyen, Lindsay Nordell, Ji−Eun Rim, Sally Thurer, and Brian Watterson. CATALOG will show from May 9−15, 2011 in the Green Hall Gallery of the School of Art, located at 1156 Chapel Street in New Haven, Connecticut. The Gallery is open daily, 10AM−6PM. A closing reception will be held from 6−9PM on May 14. See you there, YALE G.D. MFA 2011
