11-1:00 Candy Kuehn –The Wind Did It. !!! The Physics of Turbulence HAT workshop (Brain Neurology) -Library $5

October 7 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pm

$5

Project Description    Candy Kuehn   Topic:    Dark Energy/Brain Neurology

Dark Energy and Dark Matter.  I want to make the invisible – visible. In another life, I imagine I would have been a physicist, because the field of physics has the ability to explain my synesthetic, multi-dimensional existence.  Physics reveals a world in which our universe exists simultaneously manifested through a web of our five senses, and outside of the limits of a singular space and time. Join me IN my work for the See. Say. DO. event. I will be an attempt to physically communicate “slices” of my experience of the world.

I am creating a series of four to six, twelve foot ovoids, to be hung, worn, and/or manipulated.  Materials will include digitally printed fabric, paints and dyes, hand made paper, and arduino circuits with lights and sensors. The larger space allows the audience to walk through the installation and experience a multi-dimensional existence.

Authentic Voice  J. Woods Halley, of the University of Minnesota Twin Cities School of Physics and Astronomy. Professor Halley’s group studies transport and non-equilibrium processes in solids and fluids using theoretical, simulation and experimental methods. Specific studies include:  Studies of electrode-electrolyte interfaces, including electron transfer and the electronic structure of oxides and metals with applications to electrolysis and catalysis in nanophase as well as macroscopic systems. https://www.physics.umn.edu/people/woods.html

Workshop: Candy is a well know fiber artist practicing in the twin cities. Her workshop will use principals of art and identify a personal, social or biological  topic. Using 3-5 yards of brown paper, tape, scissors, staplers and string, the workshop participants will create a body sculpture or hat. For example: global warming, water or recovery issues or another topic to be determined by the group. Following the creation, the group may decide to create a performance.

Biography   Candy Kuehn   718 6th St. SE   Minneapolis, MN 55414  candy.kuehn@gmail.com    612-272-1626

I am a hyper-inventive geek, predominantly occupied with the exploration of the fiber arts media and “I-Phonography.” While endeavoring to fuse color and texture into meaning, I play with imagery and motion using a vast array of physical materials and digital space. I am curious and cross-sensed … others define my experience of the world as synesthesia. I see music’s patterns and shapes; I “touch” between spaces and time; I smell emotion. For me, “order” is less of a linear delineation, than it is a multi-sensed, overlap of pattern and motion.  Where others see “dis”-order … I find meaning. I want everybody to smell what I see, and taste what I know.
