This is an early notice— I am working on funding sources, including Kickstarter.  If you are able to assist in volunteering or in funding sources, including grant opportunities and private sponsorship, please let me know.  Our fiscal sponsor for any donation is The Black Forest Fancies, a 501C3 non profit based in New Orleans.  I would like to provide for shipping of work from outside New Orleans for the show as much as possible, as well as assist artists and tradesmen in New Orleans with materials.  I’m happy to help arrange for host lodging for any artist who can make the trip to New Orleans for the show with their work.  If anyone is willing to drive to New Orleans with work from any region in the U.S., please send me a note.

Here I’ll highlight kinetics, new media, and bio artists in New Orleans, around the U.S. and the world, and update developments on Automata, the annual kinetics sculpture show in New Orleans.

The next Automata is April 2-16, 2011 at the Old Ironworks, a warehouse at 612 Piety St. in the Bywater.   Kawliga Studios at 3331 St. Claude Ave will host a companion exhibition of kinetic models and studies, and miniatures.
