Santa Fe Complex Grand Opening June 14

We're very happy to pass along info on the Grand Opening of our friends to the north at the Santa Fe Complex. The talented people behind the Complex -- and the lineup of people who'll be performing and showing their work is fantastic.  We hope to see you there!

Santa Fe Complex Grand Opening June 14

Santa Fe Complex will host its grand opening on Saturday, June 14 with
a mixed media show entitled Emergence: The Interaction of Science &
Art from 4p.m. to 8 p.m. at 632 Agua Fria St. Part program, part
science fair, Santa Fe's artistic and scientific traditions will find
common ground in this special event to celebrate the newest addition
to Santa Fe's rich cultural and intellectual climate.

Artists Orlando Leibovitz, Paul Paryski, Jared Tarbell and Woody
Vasulka will display their work in an open house from 4 p.m. pm until
6:30 p.m.; there will also be a display of the work of German artist
Tim Borgmann. At 6:30, Mayor David Coss will open the evening program,
followed by a brief discussion on complexity and the Santa Fe Complex
led by Guerin and Steve Smith, retired LANL visualization scientist.
David Stout and Cory Metcalf of NoiseFold will end the evening with a
performance of their latest work.

Lebovitz describes the event as an opportunity to explore common
visions. "We usually think of art and science as polar opposites,"
Leibovitz said. "But many artists and scientists seek to explain the
apparent complexity of our world by striving for simplicity and
beauty. Emergence recognizes our shared values and creates a common
bond between our work." The Santa Fe based artist will showcase his
musical paintings that explore the relationship between sound and
light, music and color.

He will be joined by video art pioneer Woody Vasulka, who began
exploring the digital medium in the 1960's and continues to break new
ground in the computational art medium; Jared Tarbell, a self-
described "solar powered bipedal brain tower" and a leader in the
computational art movement; Tim Borgmann, whose three-dimensional work
won an honorable mention 2007 International Art of Digital Show in San
Diego; and Paul Paryski, whose photographic explorations of complex
natural structures will complement their work. Tarbell and Vasulka
will return to Santa Fe Complex later this summer for individual shows
and discussions about mathematics and computer art.
