Shaken and Stirred

Spark interacts with a group of artists as they put viewers in the hot seat. Machine artist Kal Spelletich catapults his subjects to the brink of sheer panic with his fire-breathing works of post-industrial folk art. Next, meet artist Scott Snibbe, who mesmerizes gallery-goers with wall-sized electronic installations that come alive to their touch, breath, and motion. Then, new media artist Amy Franceschini uses fingerprint scanning technology to take viewers on an up-close journey of their own bodies.
