“Edges and Intersections” kicked off January 9th at TechWildcatters. TechWildcatters is a technology startup incubator in the Dallas area. Their hosting the event meant there were sure to be plenty of geeks and entrepreneurs in the crowd. TechWildcatters headquarters is in an old historic church building in the Dallas uptown area, is often called the “Tech Church”. This unique space filed to the brim with great art brought in the pure art lovers as well. The Tech and art combination meant people (like me) who cross all those boundaries couldn’t stay away.
Great time had by all. Art sold, musicians played, old friends mingled, new friends made. Ideas bounced around like sounds in an echo chamber. The rafters range with notions of electronic genius as provocative images of technology and visual splendor brought the people in the door and kept them for the whole evening. Of course , tasty food and drink also keep people in the house.
Marking the entry way were my Tech-expressionist sculptures; six foot tall rugged steel and concrete renditions of smart phones. These iconic images have been called the mascot of mobile design around the Dallas tech design community, being a center piece in show after show celebrating technology and innovation.
Of course the rest of the show was spectacular too. Paintings of all styles filling two floors and a launch pad of robotics copters taking flight multiple times throughout the evening.
Can’t wait to do it again soon!
