My good friend Ben recently started a podcast called Orlandia (yes, a takeoff on Portlandia!) and it’s awesome. Not just because he interviewed me in the latest episode! I really like their focus and what they’re doing.
Tonight there’s a really cool event in Orlando. A local photography company is setting up for $20 portrait sessions with all proceeds going to the organization behind the “Rethink Homelessness” campaign (you may have seen their videos online). The backdrop is a beautiful hand-painted map that I had a part in creating. Check out the event page on Facebook to see what I’m talking about and get the details if you’re local, or check out the #rethinkorlando hashtag on Insta or Twitter.
I just sent off two artworks – one of mine and one of Amy’s – to a month-long exhibition of two and three-dimensional mathematical art, ranging from computer graphics to quilts to geometrical sculptures at Towson University. That exhibit will then join other works at the Bridges Math Art Conference at the University of Baltimore, which I will hopefully be attending.
In partnership with Snap! Orlando, Art & History Museums – Maitland, and Maven Creative, my friend Michael Forrest and I curated and organized the first ever BYOB Orlando, a one night gallery exhibition featuring explosions of light and movement by local and world renowned digital artists, designers and filmmakers. It was a great event!
Also recently, my friend Bruce Lane was kind enough to include Beautiful Chaos in his Sophia Digital Art festival, in France!
Finally, I’ve got a few new editions of my Local Notebooks, including Brooklyn and Paris, shown below:
