    Pop Up Galleries Party 

    I am planning a Pop Up Galleries Party at the end of the term, on Sunday Nov. 8th at 9 am SLT. Come talk about your work or process, show us your latest gallery or installation, or just socialize. Casual atmosphere, all Art Farmers, past MU-ers and friends are welcome.


    If there are issues with the time please let me know and I will try accommodate or perhaps add a second event. Hope to see you there.

Visit our exciting Pop up galleries exhibits (a few galleries available). Camp and socialize at our Youth Hostel. Remember there’s Van Caerndow’s Drinking and Drawing class on Monday’s 8 pm SLT @ his gallery.

      Thanks for making the video of our October Fall Session 1 Art Farm.

      This is a great example of using the invisible flying cube machinima tool we can get a copy of at your space, Kimika.

      A wonderful overview of the Pop Up Galleries! The area is really looking interesting and has been a lot of fun so far. Thanks Kimika and Elle.

    Pop up Galleries Section is Open 

    The Popup Galleries section at the Art Farm is open! Galleries can be any medium. Show your work, display with friends, or let anyone add to your gallery. Your choice. Two weeks and then we start with new galleries and works. Add sculpture to the Sculpture Gallery or installations or other builds to the Large Exhibit Area. Feel free to perform or present work using our center stage area. Teach a class, take a class. Boxed Tutorials and helpful resources can be added and shared at the Tutorial Library. Show up weekly and participate a bit.

    We currently have ย 6 – 16×16 galleries available. I can tweak the size a bit for buildings.

    A big thank you to Kimika for her great design & building work! Also to Pearl and rmarie for their valuable contributions! Look forward to seeing yours.

    Contact me, Elle Thorkveld, for questions or help.

    Tags: , Processing   


    Some people have asked for information on Processing and Generative Art. ย FutureLearn is offering a class on Creative Codingย starting on August 3rd.

    I also put together some information on Generative Art, Artists & resources (primarily Processing) atย GenCreate. It’s sort of minimalist, but might be helpful.

      Thank you Elle. I’d like to eventually learn this too.

      • Elle 12:31 on 18/05/2015 Permalink | Reply

        You’re welcome, Oona. What you are learning with building and scripting will help you with learning this.

      Thanks Elle. You are always so wiling to share. I appreciate that a lot.

    BAOC Award 


    It is hard to choose a new Big Avatar On Campus award winner from the many creative, involved individuals at MU, but one stood out to me and I select Newton. He has created an excellent series of classes with his Cafe Sophistry, which has already covered Gender and Virtuality and Time. Class sections start with an interesting philosophical discussion and end with the creation and display of art! In addition to facilitating the class, Newton has provided some delightful artistic entries and handled controversy in a graceful and thoughtful manner. I’m looking forward to the next section. Congratulations Newton!

      I love this! How exciting! Care if I share? Yes compare notes and work and have readings at.. La Poeme ๐Ÿ˜›

      • Elle 22:04 on 20/04/2015 Permalink | Reply


        Yes, please feel free to share the link/info.

        I forgot to mention, one of the nice things about FutureLearn is that they usually keep the class content available for a good while after class is officially done (for those who have enrolled). It is great for people who fall behind.
