Video installation by Andrew Elijah Edwards @ Hinterland

3254 Walnut St.
Denver CO 80205

Opening artist reception:
Friday April 11, 6- 11p

Closing reception:
1st Friday May 2, 6-10p

The Deep Novelty Harvest Colony, a new video installation by Andrew Elijah Edwards, explores the medium of stereoscopic imagery through a range of new experimental techniques unique to the modern condition. Edwardsʼ work is often an exploration into a kind of existential sensuality, a deep curiosity with the act of being aware and the strange beauty inherent in the felt presence of immediate experience. Growing up in northern New Jersey, he moved west to study film and digital art in Santa Fe New Mexico. Now in Denver, Edwards works as Lead Developer in Technology at the Denver Art Museum and is a graduate student at the University of Denverʼs Emergent Digital Practices program. The work on display in “harvest colony” is part of his thesis research project and represents the culmination of his degree.

Debut solo exhibition by Kristin Stransky @ Plus Gallery

Plus Gallery
2501 Larimer St
Denver, CO 80205

Debut solo exhibition by Kristin Stransky

April 25 - May 24, 2014
Opening Reception: Friday, April 25th from 7-9pm

Plus Gallery continues it's current focus on the future of art, specifically through local new-media artists working with unprecedented materials and techniques. Kristin Stranky's "common/myth" is an explosive solo debut by an artist whose conceptual work involves a unique engagement with digital imaging, complex 3-d printing techniques and audience interaction. The works presented in "common/myth" examine the duality of emotion and physicality in popular cultural's examination of the body and mind. Rooted in society's rapidly advancing, collective "digital memory," Stransky creates a thought-provoking, interactive environment that is a vision of the future in both concept as well as material approach.

Stransky's work has been featured on the Creator's Project, the Ars Electronica blog, and Instructables. She completed her BFA from Saint Mary's College in Notre Dame, Indiana in 2007, with a concentration in Sculpture. Stransky is currently a MFA student at the University of Denver in the Emergent Digital Practices program. She is an adjunct professor at the University of Denver, teaching Imaging, Coding and Wearables. Stransky will present a 3-d printing demonstration in conjunction with the exhibition on Saturday, May 3rd at 4pm.

Hours: Wednesday to Saturday, Noon - 5pm

Hinterland: What if …. Berlin-Denver

3254 Walnut St.
Denver CO 80205

What if ….  Berlin-Denver

March 14 - April 7, 2014
Opening Reception Friday March 14, 6-11p

What if ..., reflects on the “call and response” nature of the artistic process where the artist initiates a work by manipulating material and then influenced by the material, follows through accordingly. This dance is repeated in a series of steps until completion. Often times the unknown variables in this process are what excites or motivates an artist. This project ensures unknown variables by pairing a Denver artist with an Artist from Berlin and asking each artist to initiate a work via the linguistic question, “What if…?” responding to that question visually, then allowing a visual follow up to complete the work. Thus begins the chance relationship.

The work created by artists from Berlin will be completed by Denver artists and shown throughout three venues, GroundSwell Gallery, Hinterland, and Showpen. The work by Denver artists will be completed in Berlin and exhibited at Neurotitan, a gallery in Berlin. There is no thematic curation involved. Instead the exchange process is seen as more of a cultural event. Rather than isolate the destination and focus on the exhibition as a crescendo, we are interested in exploring the whole exchange as a quasi “happening.”
