Thanks to Roman Holowinsky

A huge thank you goes out to my friend and OSU STEAM Factory colleague Roman Holowinsky. I’m not only thankful for his generous donation to the Brownie In Motion campaign but also for his ongoing enthusiasm, and encouragement. Without Roman’s sense of long-term vision, neither the OSU STEAM Factory nor the Brownie In Motion project would exist as we know them today.

For those of you not familiar with The Steam Factory, our purpose is to promote interdisciplinary collaboration in the OSU community across the areas of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math. To disseminate research, technology and pedagogy through public interaction and to create new ways in which our work can impact a broader audience. Brownie In Motion was actually constructed  with budgetary support from an Outreach and Engagement Grant that the STEAM Factory wrote together.

It’s not too late to contribute to the indiegogo campaign! There are 8 hours left so quickly click your way over to  https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/brownie-in-motion/contributions/new and donate now!

Thank you Undine!

Normandy: A World Apart

Please take a look and support the work of Rachel Smith! Rachael’s project recently came to my attention when she donated to my indiegogo campaign, Brownie In Motion. Rachael is also in the midst of running a campaign to fund a creative project seeped in historical significance.  Normandy: A World Apart is a documentary film that seeks to preserve the stories of WWII veterans, 70 years after the D-Day invasion of Normandy.

There are 3-days left in her team’s campaign, please share their project and consider donating today!

The Brownie In Motion IndieGoGo Project Launch

My Indiegogo campaign to bring the camera obscura out west and begin a new series of ULF photographs of artisans launched on Friday at Imagine400 here in Columbus.

Many thanks goes out to the organizers & my fellow exhibitors (including Gavin Bruce, Roman Holowinksy, Reese Nader, Mikey Thomas, TLA, Linda Diec, Chris Howel, Stephen Pence and the whole Art Party crew.) I appreciated everyone who donated money and sat for a portrait at the event AND a great big thank you to everyone who has backed this project online!

A shout out goes to my fellow artists Amy Ritter (http://amybritter.blogspot.com/) and Lauri Lynnxe Murphy (http://www.laurilynnxemurphy.com/) who made the first donations online on Friday afternoon. You guys rock!
