Top 20 People's Choice! Thank you and come out and celebrate!
Thank you to everyone who rated me in the Artists Wanted competition!
I made it to the top 20 in the people's choice... Hooray!
Check out all the top 20 here:
My photos, along with those of the other top 20, will be projected at a party Saturday night at Dubai. You should come. It should be very cool and fun! Info below. :)
This Saturday, June 28th you are invited to the opening of:
Art : Music : Performance
Made exquisitely out of control.
Explore 14,000 sqft. of intimate spaces, interactive art
installations, spontaneous performance, a massive
dance-floor and perfected sound-systems raising the volume
on these hot summer nights. Over the course of the coming
months, we will be building and evolving the space with a
team of artists from Peripheral Media Projects/Ad-Hoc Art,
ArtistsWanted.org, The Madagascar Institute, 3rd Ward Brooklyn,
The Lady Circus and more. Expect a new experience with each party.
Dubai Sounds Like:
The heartbeat of the dance floor and the whispers of
strangers. This series will showcase the best
up-and-coming dj talent, live bands and unexpected
performance. This Saturday the music will rise from
classic 45s, to funk, house and electro-beats to a
special Space Hause set bringing in the sunrise and beyond
(expect to dance through dawn).
DJ Duane, $mall Change, Mr. Finewine of WFMU
and the Brooklyn favorite: Zemi17 and live accoustic
set from The Sadges.
In the downstairs Dome of Dubai:
The Amoeba Collective brings a full-scale gamelan
installation with dozens of instruments shipped from
Indonesia and the eery beauty of Dok on Therimin. This
set is something that needs to be experienced to be
believed. After, the Burning Man collective ImageNode
takes over with Morgan Packard of Microcosm playing
abstract and sexy live PA ambient electronics, Skillcrane
with live PA laptop and guitar duo loved by hoboes
worldwide and dj Borne welcomes the morning with a dub,
experimental, downtempo DJ set.
Dubai Feels Like:
That sticky insane summer party offering the best of this
city when all boundaries are abandoned. Expect a little
sweat, lust and passion plus a touch of heady Danger with:
roving gypsy cacophony by the beautifully fierce Lady
Circus; out-sized sculpture by Ryan O'Conner; the Golden
Bough by Project D. in the Arboreal Room; live silk
screen installation by Peripheral Media Projects; video
art by Sebastian Patane Masuelli and a double-dose
of fire from Squiddle and Mr. Kennedy.
Dubai Tastes Like:
Absinthe and hookahs, sweat and cherries, cocktails and
the lips of your next great love. Beyond the usual
underground party fare, we have upgraded our bar options
with a range from cheap beer to the best Absinthe in the
city. On the open-air terrace we will be serving high-end
down-home Brooklyn eats from the Urban Gourmet.
This event will also feature a special exhibition of the
20 most popular photographers from the recent Artists Wanted
Exposure competition. This showing will feature work from:
Scott Irvine, Ethan James, Qi Peng, James Mello, Amanda Wiltse,
Nevil Jackson, Pete Eckert, Brian L. Schiele, Juan Cohen,
Paula M. Grez, Janine Martel, Monica Hoover, Marianna
Marisova, C. Drew Taylor, Oluwademilade Olubanwo, Reka
