Critter & Guitari on F.A.T. Gold Public Access at Eyebeam

Critter and Guitari at Eyebeam with Bennett Williamson

Chris Kucinski, Bennett Williamson, and Owen Osborn at Eyebeam.

As part of Eyebeam’s current exhibition, F.A.T. Gold: Five Years of Free Art & Technology curated by Lindsay Howard and on view through April 20th, Critter & Guitari was asked to host a jam session for Public Access organized by Bennett Williamson.

In true Critter & Guitari fashion, Chris Kucinski and Owen Osborn invited their friends Devin Flynn, Ross Goldstein, Raphael Griswold, and even me to collaborate and make some new sounds. (Bennett would have also jammed with us like he did at the Experimental Television Center, but he had to operate the AV equipment.) The hour-long jam incorporated the sounds of the Pocket Piano family (including the first prototype), the Kaleidoloop family, and the Bolsa Bass along with a variety of analog instruments.

All in all, the jam showed the collaborative and fun nature of the instruments and the cooperative generation in which they were created.

Ross Goldstein: Gorilla Grape at Fuse Gallery

Ross Goldstein Gorilla GrapeRoss Goldstein: Gorilla Grape is an exploration in Americana through the lens of a Polaroid camera. The enlarged photographs capture moments in American history, lending themselves to nostalgia in their format and subject.

All in all, the works are subtly whimsical nested in the fact that these moments actually existed.
