The Fuzzy Beuys are back with an all new experiment, the “Hybrid Art Experience.”
To celebrate Visual Arts Week in Eugene, we will be once again teaming up with our good friend and favorite sound curator, Rortron to bring you a hybrid art experience for you to attend in person or online.
Coming up this first Friday, August 6th, Rortron will be soul trippin’ through space as the Fuzzy Beuys add psychedelic imagery to a video projected art installation on the wall behind him. The group will be performing from 6-8pm at ArtCity Studios on Broadway, located in downtown Eugene. You are also invited to participate virtually by joining a Zoom meeting live during the event. Once in the Zoom meeting you can dance virtually with Rortron and the Fuzzy Beuys, or hold up flashing lights and interesting patterns in front of your computer’s web camera for a chance to be featured or mixed into the live video projection.
Along with the good music and weird visuals, we will also be touring ArtCity studios at different times throughout the evening, and will host two special performances by Emma Rose Lynn, a musician/vocalist, voice teacher, and classically trained soprano.
*Bring flashlights, patterned blankets, colored bulbs, Christmas lights, pets, kids, anything wild and wacky that we can mix into the visuals live into the background video projection at ArtCity Studios.
Harmonic Laboratory presents The Quest: A Multimedia Wayang Kulit, a narrative journey guided by Gamelan Sari Pandhawa, a traditional Indonesian percussion orchestra, and original digital projections by Terry Holloway. The event will combine gamelan music, abstract video imagery, and Javanese shadow puppetry. It is part of the Artistic Encounters Series, which aims to bring a sense of unexpected wonder and whimsy to locations throughout downtown Eugene by presenting unique artistic experiences.
Gamelan Sari Pandhawa is dedicated to providing an educational and entertaining multi-cultural experience for the Eugene community, enriching lives through expanding cultural awareness. The ensemble was established in 1996 and has performed in concert and taught classes throughout the area. This dedicated group performs on bronze and wood instruments handcrafted and painted in Central Java and seeks to increase the community’s understanding of traditional Javanese cultural arts, music, dance and shadow puppetry.
Terry Holloway will be illuminating the puppetry with live video projections consisting of a wide array of colors and generative design. The abstract textures and visuals will be adapted and manipulated live to match the environment and tone of the narrative.
Come enjoy this free show at 9pm on Thursday, August 30th at Kesey Square in Eugene, Oregon.

Terry Holloway will be premiering a new art installation titled Sunny-side Up in Downtown Eugene on Friday, August 17th. The installation is part of Art City’s Studio Without Walls event scheduled from 5:30 – 8:00pm at the Park Blocks at the corner of Oak and 8th St. This immersive installation comprised of egg cartons, a large kiddie pool frying pan, and a “sizzling” soundtrack, invites the viewer to escape the “normal” and enter into a surreal and weird world (as a fried egg cooking on the sidewalk in the summer sun). Come enjoy this unique installation that is continuing Terry’s tradition and motto of “making it weird!”
Studio Without Walls is a EUGfun! event series that is produced by ArtCity Eugene on the Third Friday of July, August, and September.

Spark made it’s latest and greatest appearance among the campers at Pickathon Music Festival. Attendees traveling the steep and dusty trails of Pendarvis farm were treated to an array of motion-activiated colored lights that were triggered as they walked past or underneath the piece, illuminating small pouches of “ideas” overhead. By day the pouches were dappled with sunlight, and the piece felt like a natural extension of the wooded landscape, but in the darkness of night the colors flared brilliantly, lighting a crossroads for attendees seeking art, music, or friends. This was a wonderful, challenging, and very rewarding installation, and we are grateful to have played a part in the Pickathon experience.
The rest of the festival was a blast and we have included some images on our Pickathon Experience page.
Spark is made up of over 100 motion activated lights that are triggered as the viewer walks around the piece, illuminating small pouches of “ideas.”
“Creativity can be elusive. And ideas are often fleeting. If we can remain open, staying deeply engaged with our environment, we might just catch a glimpse of the countless floating ideas fragments, waiting to be born.”
