In an effort to assist with emergency needs for the affected families, TWDC has established a Fire Fund.

Additionally, 806 Wine & Martini Bar will be hosting a fundraiser on Monday, June 22, 2009

DescriptionCurve Sets [Information Art] - work by Jayce Renner

Opens ArtWalk Friday June 12th 6 - 10 p.m.
runs through June 30th

Renner's current body of work in the show “Curve Sets [Information Art]” originated from a desire to programmatically make images and an overall interest in how art intersects with technology.

The custom software Renner wrote to generate the images reads a set of numeric inputs that he creates for each image. The numbers define information needed to make the image including one or more Bézier curves, along with the starting position, thickness, and color for each curve, and the rate of change (or delta) for each number. All of the images spawn entirely from the initial set of numbers. This process is deterministic, meaning that a given set of inputs will always produce the same image.

The show's title contains the term "information art". By this Renner means that the information behind the art is more important than the physical art object itself. (This parallels conceptual art, which holds that the idea behind the artwork is more important than its physical realization.)

Paintings & Sculpture from the Wit of Melanie Newman

Paintings & Sculpture from the Wit of

Melanie Newman

A graduate of Cleveland Institute of Art in 2007, Melanie Newman's first Solo show

combines sculpture, paintings, and an interactive electronic element that is

controlled by temperature and motion. Newman's transparent "honesty" mixed

with her often use of iconic images reflects a sarcastic, brightly-colored vision of a

darker subject matter ... human condition ... and invites the audience to explore

their own emotional response to experience.

This is a show NOT TO BE MISSED!

Grand Opening: Friday June 12th 2009

6pm til...

Closing Party: Sunday June 28th 2009


Gallery open Fridays, Saturdays, Sundays, and by appointment.

Hosted by:

The Doubting Thomas Gallery

Sung Jin Choi (Brooklyn, NY)
May 15 – June 12

Evan Larson (Dearborn, MI)
June 19 – July 17, 2009

Don't miss Sung Jin Choi's Amient Sound in its final week (on view through June 12). Choi constructed an intricate kinetic installation composed of found objects. The artist includes a number of pristine ceramic slip-cast vessels combined with auditory elements using the viewer as a catalyst for the installation to come to life.

back to SPACELab>>
Using techniques such as plaster carving, mold-making, and woodworking, Evan Larson manipulates the existing structures within the gallery to create a seemingly-organic and often ephemeral space of neutrality between object and viewer within institutional dynamics.
