Skillshare Spotlight: Learn Danielle Clough’s Thread Painting Techniques

February 18, 2020

Grace Ebert

We’ve written about Danielle Clough’s intimate embroidered portraits and botanical works stitched on everyday objects on Colossal, and now the Cape Town-based photographer, designer, and embroidery artist is offering a Skillshare class to teach her thread painting methods. Tailored for beginners, her lesson plans include basic stitches and French knots and instructions on creating textures, color gradients, and dimension. She also provides a full guide to preparing your fabric, hoop, needle, and thread. When you’ve completed the 14-part class, you’ll have created a floral embroidery. Head to Skillshare to dive into Clough’s creative process.

For three electrifying weekends in 2012, 2014, and 2017, Dlectricity brought thousands of people into Midtown Detroit to experience 40 luminous projects by local, national, and international artists. This ambitious nighttime festival is back again with an expanded footprint, September 25-26, 2020, to transform Detroit with site-specific installations of light, video, performance, sound, interactive engineering, and nonconformist architecture. From lasers and 3D mapping to dance performances and large-scale video projections, we want to see what you create. We challenge you to animate historic buildings, activate the streets, generate engagement—the cityscape is your canvas. Now is the chance to show Detroit—and the world—what you can do!

Dlectricity will present a wide range of outdoor installations, performances and activities. We are looking for contemporary art projects that transcend traditional understanding of public art to transform the Woodward Corridor into a spectacular nighttime landscape. These temporary, site-specific artworks can include:

  • Light installations
  • Video art
  • 3D video mapping projections
  • Multimedia installations
  • Interactive and community engaging technology
  • Artificial intelligence and robotics
  • Works that utilize mobile platforms (smartphone, tablets)
  • Performance (art, dance, theatre, music)
  • Talks and workshops
  • Kid-friendly and/or educational experiences
  • Creative and/or interactive marketing experiences for the festival
  • The unexpected

Info session: Saturday, February 8, 2020, from 11a.m. to 2 p.m. at The Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD). This event will be live streamed.

Top Graduate Design Programs that Anticipate the Future

October 1, 2018

Colossal

Design is a powerful tool for change. At Parsons School of Design in New York City, graduate students use design to tackle the world’s most complex challenges from a human-centered perspective. Through focused training, experimentation, and exploration, they combine multiple disciplines and harness their creativity to create a more just, better-designed world.

Check out these highlights among Parsons’ 17 master’s programs in which students apply design methods to specific fields:

Data Visualization
Apply design to data. In this one-year program, students combine design with computer science, statistical analysis, and social consciousness to turn information into insight. Graduates are able to distill and display data that shapes decisions, policy, and change across professional sectors.

Design and Urban Ecologies
Apply design to the streets. Transform cities by redesigning urban processes alongside the communities that live there. Gain a broad understanding of urban development and pursue projects that transform community organizing, public space, housing, infrastructure, and more.

Lighting Design
Apply design to darkness. Explore the relationship between lighting and human experience, sustainability, and social impact, with a solid foundation in the intellectual, aesthetic, and technical dimensions of light. Option to combine with studies in Architecture or Interior Design.

Strategic Design and Management
Apply design to business. This program uses design tools like ideation, prototyping, and collaboration to develop new business models and organizational designs. Graduates are equipped with strategy, management, and entrepreneurship skills needed to lead the 21st-century global economy.

Textiles
Apply design to fiber. Students in this program explore the unlimited applications of textiles and the potential to unite craft & digital technology. Graduates are prepared for diverse creative and professional opportunities related to textiles in fashion, product design, interior design, research, fine arts, and hybrid fields.

 

 



The Universe Contemplated in Taos, with Sound and Light, at PASEO 2018 (Sponsor)

August 20, 2018

Colossal

Artist Cristopher Cichocki works on Circular Dimensions

The PASEO nighttime art festival emerged in 2014 as a platform to present installation, performance and projection art on the streets of Taos Historic District. Taos, New Mexico is a town with a long-standing reputation as an art destination and is arguably one of the oldest art colonies in the United States, founded in 1898. The town itself was established in 1615 and is adjacent to the thousand-year-old Taos Pueblo. Combined, Taos is perhaps an unlikely site for a new media art festival, focused this year on the cosmos, however the community has embraced the event.

At the PASEO 2018, local, national and international artists will present immersive and participatory art installations that harness art, science, and technology to explore the idea of “Space” –both outer and inner space– through multi-sensory experiences. The nexus for the festival will be the Space Cloud in Kit Carson Park, an inflated 8,000 sq. ft. pavilion designed by Espacio La Nube of Madrid, Spain. Within the Space Cloud, the park and throughout the adjoining streets of Taos, 18 art interactions will engage the community with thought-provoking and playful experiences for public sharing. Pre- and post-festival workshops and parties are planned.

Learn about the 30 artists who are part of this year’s festival.

The PASEO 2018 is slated for September 14 and 15, 7–11 pm.
