Electric Is The Love

2011 October 17

Earlier this year I was approached by Dana Turkovic, the Curator of Laumeier Sculpture Park, and asked if I’d be interested in participating in a unique exhibit starting this Fall. It’s hard to pass opportunities like this, so I gladly accepted.


That was, of course, the easy part …

The hard part came after.  To this point (now being October) I’ve spent months thinking, fiddling around with various things, and learning quite a bit.  The end result is an interactive installation that I call “Virtual Laumeier“, which features Minecraft, a lot of Google Maps, and a number of Webster students (and a couple friends).  Generally, everything I’ve done with Warfactory over the last decade has been mixed in and stirred repeatedly, resulting in something that’s more “art” than “game” and homage to the artists and Laumeier itself.

We’re about two weeks out from the exhibit opening, and I finally feel the stress starting to fade and the real excitement beginning to take root.  If you want to learn more, hop on over to to see the landing page for my piece of this great exhibit.  For a more general approach, check out Electric is the Love, the overall work.  Dana came up with great ideas and a cool ensemble of practitioners ranging from audio to sculpture.  I’m pretty thrilled to be a part of this.

The gallery opens on October 29th at 5 p.m. to the public, and will run through January 29th, 2012.  Check it out and as always, feel free to ask me questions!
