I always find the most wonderful things when I do video searches at Vimeo. Today I am sharing a perfect example of a wonderful find.
Bullseye presents Conversations: Architectural Responses to Place, October 31 - December 22, 2012. Two trained architects, one living in Montana and the other in Scotland, investigate the meaning of “place” in a duo exhibition of sculpture and collaborative installation.
Well, I loved the video and hopped on over to the Bullseye website to find out more:
There is a universal desire to find, create, and discuss place. Place, differing from space or location, is experiential and exists between the subjective and objective realm. It is, as Gaston Bachelard explains, poetic, conflating memory, emotion, and the senses. A new conversation about place was sparked when two architects cum artists, Richard Parrish and Karlyn Sutherland, met in the highlands of Scotland during a residency at North Lands Creative Glass. Now an ocean apart, in Montana and Scotland respectively, the conversation has continued, culminating in an exhibition of kilnformed glass, drawing, and installation. The ideas that surround place – a sense of place, a place to call home, a private place – are unexceptional but these ideas are deeply tied to our sense of self and our experience of the world, which can range from inchoate emotion to explicit conception. There are, consequently, no definitive answers, only conversations.
Okay, raise your hand if you had to look up the word, inchoate. I did. Let’s just say that yours truly and this blog are inchoate.
If you are like me, and can’t get to Portland, you need to subscribe to the Bullseye email list. Works from this exhibition will be available for viewing online when the exhibition opens. Bullseye will send you an email when the images are available. Besides, all you smarty pants vocabulary geniuses should be on the Bullseye email list anyway
