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.
Chris Gatten wrote an awesome article on Brownie In Motion in this month’s 614 Magazine, which is illustrated with photos by the talented Chris Casella! I’d like to thank the whole 614 team, including editor-in-chief, Travis Hoewischer, for including me in their magazine! If you haven’t pick up a copy yet, do it soon before they disappear from the newsstands!
I’m proud to say that the band featured on the cover of this month’s issue are my long time friends Damn the Witch Siren! They just release a new EP earlier this month called Super Delicious. This rump shaking record, which channels both Madonna and early Nine Inch Nails, is like a bowl of coco-puffs – processed, crunchy and oh-so-sweet!
I want to remind you that there are only 5-days left to support Brownie In Motion on indiegogo, please donate today and help us make it happen!
Thanks to Amy Leibrand‘s donation to the Brownie In Motion project, we are that much closer to purchasing the supplies and equipment we need to travel out west this summer with the camera obscura! Thank you so much for your help Amy! You are helping dreams manifest!
If you’d also like to contribute, please check out the campaign on indiegogo!
I just want to send a quick thank you out to Lisa D. Iacobellis for her donation to Brownie In Motion! Lisa is an extremely knowledgeable enthusiast of photographic history. As Assistant Curator for Rare Books and Manuscripts at OSU, she has been kind enough to share some wonderful examples of 19th century photography with my photography classes over the past few years!
Tomorrow I’ll be presenting at PechKucha Columbus at the High Line Car House (550 South High Street). The doors open at 7, music (surf rock!) at 7:30 and presentations begin at 8:00. I’ll be talking about artistic process, building cameras and my latest project Brownie In Motion! Hope to see you there!
