[a flux proposal by Shota Vashakmadze, Patrick Di Rito, and James Murray]
A field of light and air, described by shadows and the ephemeral sway of balloons is activated by the presence and intentions of sovereign participants; caught in a fragile moment, an unknown lamina of familiar gestures. //

an installation mediating a temporal terminus of a continuous loop. anamporphic projections converge with the voronoi pattern to create a lingering framing of both sky and proximate site.

[a flux proposal by Shota Vashakmadze, James Murray, and Patrick Di Rito]
A series of underdeveloped plots in the heart of Castleberry Hill stand in stark contrast to the district’s flourishing artistic community. Victimized by external political and economic forces, these sites situate the neighborhood in the city’s larger cycle of power relationships and urban development. //

For thousands of years, humankind has worked to bend the natural world to its will. Major civilizations assiduously worked to change and mold environments and landscapes in order to create cities and regions that meet societies’ needs and desires for shelter, order, safety, welfare, comfort, trade, leisure, religion, defense, unification, power, and military and political consolidation. //

There was a pane of glass. Or four. Three feet wide and seven feet tall. A set of glass doors at the center, as transparent and as essentially opaque as the surrounding windows. //

Atlanta’s Beltline from 10th Street south to North Avenue NE.
Patrick Di Rito
 Is art in Atlanta dead? Was it ever alive? Is art the key towards gentrification? Is gentrification even a desirable thing? What is gentrification? Who owns public space? I set out to answer none and all of these questions. With no guarantees to find answers, thus begins an experiment, an adventure, an anabasis in search of art, art communities and artists within the confines of Atlanta. //

Recent SoA Graduate, Arseni Zaitsev, and Jonathan Henry, Sci-arch Graduate, are exhibiting their new installation ALEXANDRIA this weekend at YAF’s Summer Salon
ANONYMOUS STUDIO proposes a light 1000 sf canopy for the SPSU Gallery, the purpose of which is to engage students as they come to start a new year.After its initial installation as a plain canvas, students are encouraged to change the tiles in the installation by replacing elements with those of information. This proposal is to celebrate materiality and an adjunct to the new material library. //
