Terrain Artists 6/12

Hi all!

As we count down the weeks to the 2019 Terrain Biennial I would like to broadcast exciting things that Terrain artists are doing outside of Terrain.

This week we have two exciting events from past Terrain artists! The first is an ongoing installation by Terrain artist Lynn Basa at the Multnomah County Central Courthouse. Basa was selected by the Regional Arts & Culture Council (RACC) in Portland, Oregon to create a 25’ x 75’ glass artwork for the lobby of the new 17-story Multnomah County Central Courthouse.

Basa’s design for the three-story artwork – viewable from the lobby, the second and third stories of the building, and from the building’s exterior – was inspired by conversations with the project’s Artist Selection Panel, the courthouse judges and employees, as well as formerly incarcerated community members. The focus of the artwork is a landscape that reflects the ripple effect of behavior and the passage to redemption and rehabilitation in the community justice process.

Also!! Terrain artist and current Terrain Exhibitions board member / Biennial organizer Tom Burtonwood and members of the Videokaffe collective will present Vision Machines at the Supplyframe DesignLab in Pasadena, CA.

This exhibition “Vision Machines” will probe the space between observing and surveilling, watching and seeing, the virtual and the real using custom built apparatuses made from networked microcomputer systems. Burtonwood will create a series of work designed to explore how technology alters perception.
