Mark Mothersbaugh: Myopia

Mark Mothersbaugh, Myopia at the CAC. Aside from being a member and composer for Devo, Mothersbaugh is quite the accomplished visual artist and maker. His exhibition at the Contemporary Arts Center is a solid glimpse into a life I would call prolific. Detail “Self Portrait with First Pair of Glasses” DEVO: Boji Boy Mask, New […]

Ben Frost at the CAC

I’d say this was the loudest music performance I’ve ever attended, but that would be misleading. Ben Frost created soundscapes that used some sort of super vibratey frequencies that rattled my hair follicles and clothing. If I knew how to meditate, I would have left the basement of the Contemporary Arts Center with renewed focus and inner […]

Welcome back, Metrobot

The first website I ever made was for public art in Cincinnati. It’s still up in all its rudimentary glory, with super small and grainy photos snapped on a Sony camera that stored images on floppy disks. Back in those days, the Metrobot was living outside of the Contemporary Arts Center. Though I distinctly remember […]

QC Merge

I was afraid I couldn’t fill 20 minutes, but I ended up blathering for more than forty at this year’s QC Merge, a gathering of developers, designers and industry folk that convened in Cincinnati for two days. This was the first time I spoke at length in front of a crowd. (I did whet my whistle […]


Tom and I had the chance to head down to the CAC while they were setting up the new show “Spectacle” and lend a hand. The exhibit is all about the art of the music video so there were lots of monitors to get set-up, queued and ready to loop. While storms raged outside, we took […]

Typeface screening

AIGA Cincinnati had a screening of the film Typeface at the CAC. The documentary about the Hamilton Wood Type Museum was heartbreaking and hopeful. The movie takes a look inside the big factory up in Two Rivers, Wisconsin that is packed to the gills with wood type and printing machines. Combine that with stories from former […]

A trip to the CAC

Patti Smith is everywhere for me lately. Above: A Shepard Fairey piece is in the foyer of the CAC. I went there with Tom to catch the Keith Haring exhibit, which was really pretty darn great, but sad at the same time as you see his creative life was cut too short. It’s worth going just to see Haring’s […]

Handmade Nation at the CAC

Left work a few minutes early to head down and catch a free screening of Handmade Nation at the Contempoary Arts Center. Can’t believe it took me this long to see the flick about the burgeoning DIY community. Makes me think that in 2011 we need to set up at more events and enjoy the company […]
