A new art installation by Terry Holloway, will make its debut in Downtown Eugene on Friday, September 21. This piece will be featured at ArtCity’s BEAM, an illuminated outdoor pop-up gallery showcasing multidisciplinary art, from 8:00-11:00 PM at the Park Blocks at the corner of 8th and Oak St.  A geometric structure big enough to walk through, the immersive sculpture will be comprised of color and light projected onto external planes, but those who enter will discover flexibility and reflection within. This piece invites the viewer to feel transformed, transported, or immersed in a different world, and then to return to the familiar with a new perspective.

Fusion of traditional Javanese shadow puppet theater with live video projection create a new visual experience in Downtown Eugene.

gamelantitle1.jpgHarmonic 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.

New Immersive Installation Premiering in Downtown Eugene

Compressed-9801Terry 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!”

Spark displays at Pickathon!

IMG_6167

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.

Installation Begins Tuesday at Pickathon Music Festival

The 2-Day Installation on the collaborative piece, Spark, will begin next week out at the Pickathon Music Festival in Happy Valley, Oregon. The support team is comprised of artists Terry Holloway and Cari Ingrassia, with the assistance of Meghan Horne-Brine and Jen Hagerman.

Pickathon Suspension Setup

Tuesday


The crew will begin early in the morning on Tuesday installing the suspension rig with the goal of hanging all 5 LED lighting grids, as well as installing all 120 custom built LED lights. The day will conclude with an electrical test to access battery efficiency and note any changes to be made the next day.

Wednesday


Wednesday is reserved for attaching the “creative” pouches delicately around the LED lights.  Workers will also be tasked with making any necessary adjustments that were noticed the night before. Once the pouches are in place, installation continues to the wiring and networking of all sensors and lights. Once everything is wired correctly, batteries will be installed and the whole installation will then be tested throughout the night to ensure all tech is running safely and properly.

Stay tuned here for more documentation during the installation process.

“Spark” will be on display at Pickathon

We are happy to announce that Spark, a collaboration by Terry Holloway and Cari Ingrassia, has been invited to be part of the curated art series at the 20th Annual Pickathon Music Festival this year.

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.”
