Exode et inertie – retours sur "Migration" (迁徙)

Exode et inertie – retours sur “Migration” (迁徙)

Exode et inertie – retours sur “Migration” (迁徙) Toute personne venant à la galerie observe une œuvre et s’interroge. L’esprit du visiteur est confus. C’est bien ça la magie d’island6 : l’innovation et l’interaction grâce aux media utilisés. Mettre l’esprit face au doute, face à l’inconnu. Mettre en exergue le plus de sens possible, le son,...

Descubriendo island6…

I always felt growing up that I had a weird name until I learned more about...

If not for the art, then for the wine. Last night’s event at  was a cocktail of conversations, art, and alcohol, a perfect mix for an early summer night (albeit a wet one). It was a slow start, I admit. The gallery wasn’t fully packed until about 8, and as more and more familiar faces poured into...

Chickens and Eggs and Exhibitions.

Every island6 show undergoes its own unique and curious development. Not unlike a child in many ways, it can be rather difficult to quantify all the things that shape and influence its path. As most of you may already know, the process for shows is generally as follows: a) develop a concept b) articulate that concept...

Making Interactive Art [Behind The Scenes]

The art of making art – it can be challenging, it can be frustrating, it can be exciting, it can be more than you think. But as long as you are working on something you novel or something you (nor anyone else) has never done before there is a special type of rush involved that...

The sound of millions of dollars, sinking.

When a ship sinks into the ocean, if nobody is around to hear it, does it still make a sound? I am torn on my stance regarding this issue. When I was younger I would have told you to fuck off if you asked me that question. I had more important ways to spend my...
