Bio Lux: The original function of clothing is to shield human from weather conditions. The garment designed for a pianist Jocelyn Ho flips this function inside out: it does not protect from the external environment but exposes and interacts with the internal physiology of her body. Sensors on the pianist’s body detect her heartbeat, movement, and energy to act as triggers between the music and the illuminated attire Nagasawa designed. By creating an interactive sartorial (wearable) art activated by bodily rhythms, the performing body becomes an augmented artwork which transforms the performance. This clothing, made from “woven” pulsating optical fiber creates a soulful journey between mind, body, and music. (from Synaesthesia Playground dossier)

MFA OPEN STUDIOS Oct. 9th & 10th

This year’s annual MFA OPEN STUDIOS event will be held on Oct. 9th and 10th.  Stony Brook students, faculty, staff and general public are welcome to come visit the main studios located in Nassau Hall.  This is a rare and fun opportunity to meet the artists and see what goes on in an artist’s studio before work enters the public.

Regardless of the chosen area of concentration, an MFA candidate must be able to prove not only strong conceptual development, but also the skillful execution of tools, materials, and craft. This includes programs rooted in innovative uses of technology, collaborative work, or interdisciplinary projects.

Stony Brook University’s MFA program is a small yet select group of candidates working in a variety of mediums ranging from photography, video, digital, sculpture, painting, printmaking and beyond.  The artists will be at Nassau Hall Wednesday Oct. 9th from 4-10 pm and Thursday Oct. 10th from 12-10pm with reception on Oct. 10th from 7-10pm.

Please see our Facebook event page for more information: https://www.facebook.com/events/563663360360154/

We look forward to seeing you all there!
