Sensualscaping Stairs

 photo ---IMG_2824_950_zps2da63b41.jpg  photo Staircase_duo_950_zps537208cd.jpg " These stairs for a residential project (Sensualscaping) took us in an important new direction, harnessing digital production and fabrication to form a seamless and deeply sculptural experience. This page documents a component that we felt was rich enough in detail to merit further exploration and explanation. The stair is a continuation and intensification of the simple graphic skirting board lines that trace their way through the house. As they turn the corner into the stair void, they expand like a genie released from a lamp, curling and separating and bifurcating from the wall to form the delicate edge of the stair treads, lifting into the air to rise as the veil of the balustrade. This veil hangs gently from above as a series of thin paired threads, softly pulled back at the entry to allow movement past, gently splaying around the corner to meet and carry the arriving visitor onwards & upwards." - Atmos Studio  photo ---IMG_0869_950_zps6ad822e4.jpg  photo IMG_0208_950_zps41c457c6.jpg

A Step On the Sun by Janet Biggs

Biggs’s video centers around a crater situated almost two miles above sea level, which houses the world’s largest sulfuric lake. We watch as the miner collects hardened sulfur crystals and packs them into a basket. Amid clouds of toxic sulfur dioxide gas, he carries heavy loads up a steep, rocky path from the crater floor to the rim, then to a distant weigh-station. The footage confronts us with a provocative mixture of natural beauty and human exploitation.' Link here.  photo abi-dig-720_zps096de890.jpg  photo step-installation-3A-720_zps0bad0693.jpg

She earned a BFA in painting at the University of Georgia. Hannah explains her work by saying, “I love working with the feminine form. The female embodies so much in terms of imagery and symbolism. For things such as nature, oppression, beauty, love, emotion, sexuality there are so many layers and facets one can glean from representing the woman. As I approach the idea of femininity I bring with it my own experiences growing up as a woman and the difficulties and struggles that I have fought. The psychology of how women are portrayed in art and the media are amplified and exposed in my work. In turn, I’ve reinterpreted my experiences and how women are portrayed in today’s society to also extend to how it seems that we as individuals and as a race have objectified, commodified and exploited women, animals, and nature.

Curiosity about nature lead me to become a research earth scientist. Field work as a scientist honed my observations of nature. I was fortunate to work throughout the world, often in remote and wild landscapes in diverse environments. I always enjoyed sketching and began to take art seriously later in life. I took drawing and painting lessons at the Denver Art Students League and workshops from well known artist I admired. I worked on several mediums, including acrylic, watercolor, and printmaking, but now work mainly with oil paint. I try to distill my experiences in remote and wild landscapes into my paintings. I often do a small plain air study of an environment and often begin a larger studio painting based on the smaller study. I hopes that those who view his paintings will share my sense of awe and love of nature." - William R Miller  photo mountain-stream-no-3_zpsac617520.jpg
