    September 15, 2012 You can also find us here https://www.facebook.com/incandescentcloud and here www.incandescentcloud.com CLOUD is a large-scale interactive sculpture created from 6,000 light bulbs (new and burnt out) by Canadian artists Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. The piece utilizes everyday domestic light bulbs and pull strings, re-imagining their potential to create wonder and inspire collaboration. As part of the process of creating the sculpture, the artists collected burnt out incandescent light bulbs from the surrounding community, forging an informal relationship with non-artists, reducing costs, and asking audiences to reconsider household items in an alternative context. During exhibition, viewers interact with CLOUD by initiating impromptu collaborations, working as a collective to turn the entire sculpture on and off. How CLOUD works: The hand-bent steel substructure of the sculpture is covered in a skin of incandescent light bulbs (new and burnt out), and rear-lit from within by 250 compact fluorescent bulbs, pulling a total power of approximately 20 amps (the equivalent of two household outlets). Each of these bulbs is attached to a pull-string, allowing viewers to control the illumination of the structure – like lightning in the CLOUD above them. Editions of CLOUD have appeared at Nuit Blanche Calgary (Canada) and Garage Center for Contemporary Culture as the centerpiece of Art Experiment 2013 (Moscow, Russia). A third evolution of the sculpture was created in June 2013 in Chicago, USA. Entitled CLOUD CEILING, this rendition is a permanent installation (sans pull-chains) in Progress Bar, utilizing motion sensors and over 15,000 light bulbs. Sponsors: Alberta College of Art + Design, The Nuit Blanche Foundation, The City of Calgary, Calgary Arts Development Authority, Calgary Public Arts, Calgary 2012, and The Awesome Foundation (Calgary chapter).

      Vince Hannemann, A.K.A. the Junk King, has spent much of his life constructing the Cathedral of Junk in Austin, TX. In 2010, the City of Austin requested a building permit and Vince was forced to tear down nearly half of his creation. Despite this traumatic event and with the help of many supporters, Vince was still able to keep the Cathedral alive and continue its legacy.

            Following a period during which social and economic issues were being redefined, Venetian artists and community activists gathered together to co-create a vision for the future. Amidst this atmosphere of transformative innovation, nine conscious artivists began a journey toward achieving a center for spiritual independence. On April 18, 2014, in the season of re-birth, Full Circle Venice held it’s first ceremony to cleanse and activate the temple. The doors are now open to a sacred space in the heart of the community for spiritual gatherings, conscious events and cultural experiences. http://fullcirclevenice.com/ Music By: Song: God's Whisper by: Raury http://www.weraur.com/ available on itunes: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/gods-whisper/id834408895?i=834408907

              from Facebook Stories / Added

              In January 2011, Oregon State University ichthyologist Brian Sidlauskas led a research expedition into the little-known Cuyuni River region of Guyana in South America. His team documented more than 5,000 fish, but Guyana’s immigration policies required them to identify and catalog every specimen they wanted to bring back—a nearly impossible task, especially on a tight schedule. Sidlauskas uploaded his research photos to Facebook and tagged members of the scientific community who were able to identify almost all of the photos in under 24 hours.

                A short animated film about the Belgian political structure. The text was written by Marcel Sel, a Belgian writer, author of Walen Buiten, a best-seller on the «Belgian Crisis». The music was specifically composed by Laurent Aglat for the film, and Emma Dornan's beautiful voice gave the commentary its magical tone. The film was directed by Jerome de Gerlache.

                    this year we launched Share, a stillmotion effort to give back. every year we'll donate our time and gear to tell a one story that could use our help to get a wider audience or recognition. if you'd like to nominate somebody for our next share film, please email us at share@stillmotion.ca getting to know so many of the people that make up Old Skool showed us a world that few of us had ever experienced first hand. it was certainly my first time visiting the projects and you can immediately feel the environment as you enter. as you'll see in the film, what we were left with was such a warm portrait of these youth who put so much of who they are, and so much heart into making Old Skool a success. i can remember being in that age range, not quite 20 yet, and i don't think i could point to one thing that i care about half as much as these youth care about Old Skool. their perspective and determination at such a young age is absolutely awe-inspiring. last Friday we brought a projector down to Old Skool to premier this piece. among a packed restaurant, Teresa stopped the kitchen and had everybody come out and take a moment to share in the experience. Tammy's first reaction to the film, through tears, was especially touching. she said that the Old Skool family means so much to her and the film showed the world how she knows each of them to be in her heart. /////////////////// soundtrack selection for the soundtrack we needed music that was at first quiet and contemplative, and later uplifting. originally we thought something with piano would work great for the first chapter, but it didn't feel perfect for the tone of the piece - while it filled the quiet need,we still felt the contemplative aspect was missing. we've always been a fan of Drew Barefoot's music because of the contemplative nature of the music - you can't help but reflect on your own life as you listen to it. Enjoy The Calm filled both needs perfectly - it's both quiet and contemplative. when you watch this film, you feel a sense of calm in the characters as they talk about their past experiences; they've come to terms with who they were, and now they're looking at who they are and who they are going to be, and the title of the track and the music therein couldn't have been more perfect. for the uplifting chapter, we turned to Kelli Schaefer's - Song For a Friend. the music, while uplifting, isn't over the top - it felt perfect for the emotional tone of the second chapter of the film and the lyrics couldn't have been better suited to the piece - I'm just going to stand by your side, I'm just going to hold your hand tight - it's exactly what Old Skool is about and it couldn't have been any more perfect for the end of the their film. Music licensed at www.WithEtiquette.com Drew Barefoot - Enjoy the Calm Kelli Schaefer - Song For A Friend /////////////////// more on Share Share started because we wanted to give back. after our first film, we feel like we have taken much more than we gave, and for that we have to thank everybody at Old Skool. if you enjoy the film and want to support Old Skool, please share their film and come visit their restaurant. if you have ideas or want to help our with our next Share film, please email is at share@stillmotion.ca For licensing inquiries, please contact discovery@storyandheart.com
