HOPES [25] Conference: Earl Mark’s Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation

Hello!
We had a great first day of the HOPES [25] sustainability and design conference! We are so excited about the conversations that have been generated by yesterday’s activities. Let’s maintain that momentum!
For those of you planning to attend Earl Mark’s workshop at 1pm, please remember that part of the workshop will be outside so wear appropriate clothing and shoes.
More information on the Rapid Shelter Site Improvisation workshop:
In the fleeting moments setting up rapid shelter following a catastrophic event, speed may be critical and site data unavailable. With Associate Professor of Architecture, Dr. Earl Mark, and Marine Biologist, Dr. Deborah Brosnan, participants equipped with compass, camera* and sketchpad walk the southern bank of the Willamette River adjacent to UO. Recording what is directly observable, they will then move indoors to layout shelters with a minimal environmental footprint from prepared paper fold models. The experiment concludes with a discussion of lessons learned.
Randy Hester’s lecture, “Design for Ecological Democracy” will start at 10:30, (not as listed on the brochures at 10).
 
For more information about the HOPES[25] Conference, follow the link below. All events are free and open to the public.
We’ll see you there!
Best,
HOPES[25] Team

Below are photos from our previous workshops, benefits of SKY meditation, and testimonials.

Testimonials

“Yesplus (now SKY) made me very conscious of my thought patterns, and conscious of a sense of self that exists independent of those thoughts and different moods. It made me calmer, more reflective, more observant, and more stable–I enjoyed the course a great deal, and have found that a daily practice is something I’m relying on. (And this reading and finals period has been largely stress free, mainly because meditating removes most of that stress!)”

— SARAH, SOPHOMORE, HARVARD UNIVERSITY

“Alertness, creativity and efficient teamwork, I realize, are the cornerstones in contributing and getting the most from a demanding schedule at a business school. I observe that while students struggle to maintain their energy throughout the day, Yesplus practices helps me to be in “the zone”. They tremendously assist me to keep my smile throughout the day, deliver successfully and involve myself ingeniously… all without feeling a sense of stressful effort. What else can one ask for!”

— CHETAN, MANAGEMENT FELLOW AT SLOAN SCHOOL OF MANAGEMENT, MASSACHUSETTS INSTITUTE OF TECHNOLOGY

Please join us until 3:30 today to select your bowl and be part of the Ocean Bowl Project.

Ecological Art + Design to restore the earth:

Join artists/designers to support our beloved Pacific Ocean.  We generated a site-specific art experience with ocean-inspired ceramic bowls, then temporarily harbored debris that washed onto the beach inside the Ocean Bowls. The poetic gesture of removing debris and cleaning the bowls is an act to restore local habitat and benefit all beings who call the Pacific Ocean home. 100% of proceeds go to the Cape Perpetua Marine Reserve.

Who we are
Aerothreads is Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB) and SBA certified HUBZone Small Business that specializes in the design, fabrication and installation of Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) blankets. Our job is to design and fabricate custom MLI blankets that protect spacecraft hardware from the harsh environment of space.

We believe that our success is attributed to the creativity and skill of our team members who bring their experience into the space industry.

What we do
Provided with customer CAD drawings or hardware, we create our templates by draping or drafting.

Oregon Visual Artists: April 15th Deadline for Fall 2019 Residencies

Call for applications – TFFF Partnership updated logo-1mvwnrn

The MacDowell Colony and The Ford Family Foundation are working together to provide residencies to Oregon’s visual artists.

MacDowell provides valuable work time as well as inspiring environment in which creative artists are provided with exclusive use of a studio, accommodations, and three prepared meals a day for two weeks to two months. The Ford Family Foundation is dedicated to enhancing the quality of artistic endeavor by Oregon’s established visual artists through the Foundation’s Visual Arts Program.

We hope you will consider applying for this opportunity. The attached document outlines the partnership in further detail.

There is no cost for a Fellowship; however, artists are responsible for their own materials and travel expenses. In order to open the residency experience to a broader community of artists, MacDowell offers two financial assistance programs to those who have been awarded a Fellowship. Need-based stipends are available to artists who would not otherwise be able to afford the time away that a Fellowship requires and travel reimbursement grants are available to defray the cost of travel to and from New Hampshire.

Our next deadline is April 15, 2019 for the fall 2019 residency season at MacDowell.

To apply, please visit www.macdowellcolony.org/apply-for-fellowship

Potential Design Student Project – Eugene-based brand

I work for a Eugene-based manufacturer of archery equipment called Bowtech. We’re a premium consumer brand and manufacture our products in our factory here in Eugene.

This Fall we’re launching several new products, including a new line of carbon fiber bows. We really want to emphasize the lightness and technology of these new products, and believe that color is a great way to do so. The archery category tends to be very traditional, with a limited and bland color pallet. We want to try something different. This new line of bows will appeal to a diverse audience, by age, gender and archery experience.

The proposed student project:

  • Develop a color pallet for a new line of carbon fiber vertical compound bows
  • If interested, develop other decoration options, including camouflage patterns, carbon fiber finishes, etc.
  • Develop a design for a bow targeted for women

Information we can provide the student:

  • A tour of our factory and offices and meetings with our marketing and product development team
  • Product samples
  • Competitive assessment
  • Extensive consumer research
  • Target consumer profile
  • Access to locally-based paint supplier

I believe this is an interesting project for a student.

Thank you.

Community Arts Grants — Info Session March 6th!

Grant Funding for Art Projects and Arts Organizations in Eugene

Lane Arts Council accepting applications through May 2nd

EUGENE, Ore.— Funded by the City of Eugene and administered by Lane Arts Council, the Community Arts Grant program creates opportunities for Eugene artists, and ensures diverse, accessible arts experiences for Eugene participants and audiences. The grant program supports the ever-expanding role of that arts in the cultural, social, educational and economic areas of community life in Eugene.

Guidelines for both grants have been revised for this year. Through these changes, the City of Eugene and Lane Arts Council hope to increase the impact of grant funding by encouraging strategic organizational, program, and audience development. The overall goal is to support the long-term viability and success of Eugene’s arts community.

“Arts and culture is the heartbeat of our city and the reason why so many of us love living in Eugene, states Liora Sponko, Lane Arts Council Executive Director. “These grant awarded projects and programs provide our community with access to the incredible artistic contributions of our local artists and organizations. We are grateful that the City of Eugene champions this program and recognizes the importance of public funding for the arts.”

Applicants can apply for either a Project Grant or a Program Grant:

The Community Arts Program Grant provides two-year operating support to Eugene’s mid-sized community arts organizations. The primary goal of the Program Grant is to help arts organizations fulfill their strategic goals and reach the next level of their development such as capacity building, program development, audience building, staffing, expanded partnerships, and other organizational advancement. This is a competitive grant awarded every two years for up to seven arts organizations in Eugene. Lane Arts Council will award $5,000 each year for two consecutive years.

The Community Arts Project Grant prioritizes projects that emphasize accessibility to underserved audiences and provide arts programming that takes place in the City of Eugene. Competitive project proposals demonstrate strategies for community impact and provide access and inclusion to underserved and underrepresented communities whose opportunities to experience the arts are limited by ethnicity, economics, or disability. Proposals might include exhibits, performances, festivals, workshops, events, programs and other examples of arts and culture projects.

Community Arts Project Grant Informational Session: Wednesday, March 6, 4-5:30pm

Bascom-Tykeson Room, Eugene Public Library (100 W 10th Ave)

Attend this free informational session to ask questions and learn specifics about the Project Grant and the application process. Register at http://lanearts.org/community-arts-grants/

MacKenzie Fellowships for Artists’ Residencies: March 12 Deadline

Taleamor Park is especially seeking applications from visual artists for two-week residencies between May 11 and September 28.

For each of the six sessions we offer one $750 MacKenzie Fellowship, coupled with an assistantship that covers the residency fee in exchange for 12 to 15 hours work per week. Others will pay according to a tiered pricing structure.

We strive to maintain a balance between writers and visual artists, but most of our applications so far have been from writers.

So please encourage visual artists to apply for this rewarding opportunity. Acceptance is moderately but not extremely competitive, so we encourage anyone with strong work, references, and commitment to apply, especially if their project can relate to the unique qualities of our scenic rural location near Chicago and Lake Michigan.

Residents live in a lovely 1854 Italianate farmhouse that has four private air-conditioned bedrooms, two bathrooms, two kitchens, a laundry room, two common rooms, a library, a writing nook, and a paper studio. Vintage outbuildings offer both private and spacious shared studio spaces.

Verdant walking trails wind from the native plant and vegetable gardens, on through fields of grain, and further to woods and ponds and scenic vistas. Taleamor Park borders the mid-continental divide, from which waters flow either to the Gulf of Mexico or to Lake Michigan and the Atlantic.

Taleamor Park especially encourages residents who will respond to its unique location for site-specific installations, eco-artistic projects, parkland design and construction, plant growing and care, meditative walking, issues of water supply and quality, creative solitude, and plein air as well as studio painting.

There is a downloadable application form, and applications for the residency are accepted as long as places are open.

Applications for MacKenzie Fellowships with an assistantship are due March 12.

Ryan Pierce, a co-director of Signal Fire will be visiting our campus. Signal Fire is a non-profit based in Portland, that provides opportunities for artists and creative agitators to engage with our remaining wildlands.

He is going to give a slide presentation on their “Wide Open Studios” artist residency scheduled this summer.

Wide Open Studios is Signal Fire’s arts and ecology field institute, making our innovative wilderness excursions available to college students, emerging artists, or anyone seeking an immersive, hands-on, and transformative arts education. These trips invite students to explore their studio practice in dynamic wilderness locations, amidst an atmosphere of friendship and critical thinking. Our curriculum is centered on the natural and cultural histories of the sites we visit, and the possibilities of making art in— and in response to— wild places. Individual and collaborative projects invite students to see the wild as a place of wonder, empowerment, action and connection.

Please join us! Hope to see you there.

Call of Artwork: Contemporaneity Journal

Contemporaneity Call for Artwork 2019-18d09yd

We are pleased to announce that Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture is seeking artwork for its 8th edition. 

Emi Finkelstein and Ellen Larson

Co-Art Editors

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture

contemporaneityjournal@gmail.com

contemporaneity.pitt.edu

———————————————-

Art can be understood as a product of its Zeitgeist-a reflection of the time from which it comes. The temporal dimension of art has long been used by artists to understand their own position in time and to link themselves and their work both to the past and the present. The 8th issue of the journal Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Cultureseeks artistic submissions that address the relationship between artists and their time and ask what it means to be contemporary.

Contemporaneity’s 8th edition, titled “Yesterday’s Contemporaneity,” uncovers how cultures throughout the global past have negotiated temporalities, modernities, and historicisms to come to terms with what it means to be present in their own moment. How can both history and modernity be visualized, contextualized, or conceptualized to create a sense of contemporaneity? How have institutions created temporalities for the cultures they study, and how can a historical object or space shape a person’s perception of an entire culture’s identity or agency? What is at stake in defining a work of art’s place in time? For the arts section of edition 8 Contemporaneityis seeking artworks engaged with these or other questions relevant to the negotiation of temporalities within one’s art practice. In particular, we welcome submissions concerning anachronisms, futurisms, revisionisms, as well as spoliation, re-use of the past, and appropriation.

The deadline for submissions is April 30, 2019. Submissions should include the candidate’s full name, e-mail address and telephone number, a brief biography, an abstract about the artist’s work, 3-5 keywords, and a single PDF containing high-quality image(s) of each work to enable the selection committee to form as accurate an idea as possible of the applicant’s practice. There is no entry fee and no monetary publication reward. Applicants working exclusively in the medium of video are advised to provide a link to a video hosting site such as Vimeo or YouTube or to their own site where the video can be viewed.

To make a submission, visit contemporaneity.pitt.edu, click Register and create an Author profile to get started. We recognize that submissions may take many forms. As such, proposals and questions can be directed to the editors at contemporaneityjournal@gmail.com.

Contemporaneity: Historical Presence in Visual Culture is an open access journal organized by the History of Art and Architecture Department at the University of Pittsburgh. Visit contemporaneity.pitt.edu and constellations.pitt.edu for more information.
