Unconventional Art - Unconventional Spaces

        PNCA MFA CANDIDATES - OUT OF TRUE, EXHIBITION

        LEFT EDGE COLLABORATIVE STUDIO - THE CLOUD ORGAN

The Cloud Organ is part musical instrument and part contemporary sculpture, exploring the relationship of sound in a space.

Six suspended sculptures play a tuned set of 74 pipes through a robotically controlled pneumatic system.

Created through a team-based design process, the project was developed by students of the Art and Technology Methods class in conjunction with faculty member David

Bithell.

The bodies of the sculptures were designed with 3D modeling programs and fabricated through a variety of tools, from woodworking to 3D printing. It’s an immersive sound experience that will never be quite the same from visit to visit.

 

Left Edge Collaborative Studio, led by SOU faculty member David Bithell, is comprised of students from the Studio Art and Emerging Media and Digital Arts (EMDA) programs.  Utilizing a wide range of skills including 3D modeling, fabrication, social media, documentation, coding, robotics, and music composition, this team of artists develops large-scale projects in interdisciplinary arts and technology.

True

/troo/

Adjective

Appropriately positioned, balanced, or aligned.

 

The term “out of true” denotes a misalignment or an imbalance. It’s often used to describe a bicycle wheel that is no longer aligned or a house frame that is not level. In such a scenario a “truing” process is undertaken to bring the object or issue into the required alignment for the necessary purpose.

 

Works can be seen in the CVA Galleries at SOU and across the SOU Campus.
