The Bleeding Edge
Spark explores the boundaries of what is considered art. Meet Jon Brumit and Marc Horowitz as they take over New Langton Arts and reinvent themselves as the business team of Sliv & Dulet Enterprises. They collaborate with 25 other artists to "develop new products and services" within an experiential installation that comments on conventions of office life and the art world. Then join sound artist Loren Chasse as he activates the sounds of nature and architecture with youth from Julia Morgan Center for the Arts' summer camp. Lastly, smart mobs like FlockSmart are sweeping the world -- is it a passing fad or a major technological trend? Judge for yourself.
