Space 1026 is excited to present Ultra-Bluster, a group show featuring new work by Philadelphia artists Kerry Kenney and Rodger Binyone. Ultra-Bluster is a collectively conceived universe of visual art, music and table game systems exploring the motifs and concepts of mythology, cosmology, geometry and science fiction. Kenney uses the airbrush to blend the imaginary and the hyper real, weaving futuristic loose soccer themes into multi-player, mini sport arena, gaming systems. Binyone and Kenney expound upon a visual vocabulary rooted in their music experimentations with co-collaborator Jesse Van Anglen, to release a screen printed 3-D elemental, UV light reactive, & partially phosphorescent book/zine. As music is intrinsic to ceremony, tournament anthems in the guise of an Ultra-Bluster soundtrack will play throughout. More friends rally in team formation to initiate the plane for this interactive playing field. Space 1026 gallery is now a synergy of gaming stations, prints, and audio enhancements exploring the societal paradigm of the ritual and the sacred within the social narrative of sports, all made possible by you the guest player, please come join us and play!

1:00pm – 4:00pm at Space 1026
Build your own controllable and programmable DIY light saber from scratch. There will also be Yogagami, the Japanese art of folding paper into a Yoda. Sign up for the workshop here!
The event is all ages but is strongly suggested that Padwans partner up with their Jedi Masters (Kids bring a Parent or Guardian) It is also $35 per parent/child team, and you will complete one saber together
All the materials needed to make your very own Saber are included in the class price of $35 , including a laser cut saber, the LEDs, button, battery, and Arduino. All proceeds generated will be donated to Space 1026.
At the heart of the Project is the atmel attiny85 8 bit microprocessor. You might know it in its much more expensive version as the Arduino. No soldering will be involved as the majority of the project is made with jumper wires, a tiny breadboard and the wonders of the hot glue gun. For more advanced Jedis’ who are interested in learning the force fundamentals, we will be offering an explanation of how to program your own attiny85’s at home by using an Arduino Uno!!!
MAT TONELLI JAMES JOHN SMALL
JULY 10-31, 2015
JULY 10, 2015
Mat Tonelli and James John Small, both dealing in constructs of moments and the sublime, find new ways to push paint in directions that follow the footsteps of Abstract Expressionists, as well as drawing elements from those considered New European. The two have many dissimilarities in their process and inspiration, but their work somehow intersects at a point, which led them to collaborate not only in a joint show, but in the execution of works of art as well. If you wanted to label these works, you could call it landscape painting; a spontaneous, organic and fitting subject matter they showcase in X CROSS.
The plane we see into on the surface is a moment of tranquility and chaos, a meditation of the awe of man in the natural world. The beauty of landscape, a base for subject matter is the reflection of what is relative to a certain individual.
While Tonelli uses form, color and shape to influence the creation of a scene, Small uses images, whether it be his own or a historical documentation, to direct the flow of his work. Often starting using washes and drips of paint, Tonelli allows the medium to dictate action from the beginning and mechanically fills space with patterns, a perfect counterpart for the tedious carving that Small employs. The two intersect at a point where they are bound to nothing but the aesthetic.
