Candelier by Takeshi Miyakawa

Join us on December 1st for the opening reception of the “Creatomatic” exhibition.

On display will be a collection of artworks generated using the “Creatomatic” software, designed to accelerate the imagination and prompt new inventions. They include: “Candelier” by Takeshi Miyakawa, a chandelier cast entirely out of wax which will eventually disappear if lit; “Tea Bag Catapult” by Jacob Tonski with Austin Wieland, a teacup and spoon catapult system to get rid of used teabags; “Tape Dispenser Particle” by Greg Witt, a mechanical sculpture interpreting particle physics using tape dispensers; Other artists in the show include participants from the Creatomatic Workshop Katie Koepfinger and Amritha Michelle Berger.

The “Candelier” will be lit for the opening, come and watch it disappear.


The Creatomatic is designed by Nova Jiang with software by Leonard Tirulnikov, and is supported with a generous grant from the Black Rock Arts Foundation.
