OBLSK: PULSE

Pulse2Pulse is a modular 3d sculpture created by OBLSK, with support from Capital University Audio Engineering Students and Greater Columbus Arts Council, that captures the pulse of Columbus, Ohio. Patterns found in the city’s sounds and textures are translated into light and color, which play on the surfaces of 3 floating triangular pyramids. Through RGB LEDs and video projection, Pulse comes alive as a glowing prism of energy, revealing the rhythm of the heart of Columbus.

Pulse was presented at the Columbus Arts Festival Patron Party on June 10th and was a huge success adding color and ambience to the festivities as well as innovation and curiosity.

Special Thanks to the Greater Columbus Arts Council,  ZenGenius, the Cultural Arts Center, and CoverMyMeds.

Fox_mannequins_small

Stratosphere is an exhibition exploring light and the ways that light can manipulate architecture, object, and perspective. Through projection, shadowplay, performance, and sculpture, OBLSK has created an event that is exciting, innovative, entertaining, and beautifully dark.

Fox written and produced by eve Warnock and Pelham Johnston is a 3d projection mapping onto three mannequins that tells the story of vanity and greed through the interaction of a beautiful woman/fox, a narrator/badger, and a business man/lion.  The powerful imagery and magnetic storytelling are innovative and immersive engaging the audience in a visual dreamscape that unravels in mysterious ways.

RAGNO is a shadow play directed by Brandon Reichard that looks at a dysfunctional relationship between a husband and wife and the husband’s efforts to upgrade his wife. Through beautiful shadow puppetry, humor, and unexpected twists RAGNO keeps the audience enthralled and delighted.

OBLSKlogoPlease Join us as for an evening of art, music, and laughter for the opening of XSpace, The Ohio Art League’s new gallery space. This event is honoring the history of the Ohio Art League, the talented artists that have been members, and a new vision that is about growth, expansion, inspiration, and imagination. OBLSK will be presenting two media pieces at this event.

Friday December 11th, 7:00-11:00pm, 400 Rich Street Studios

Title: Prism

It travels beyond our skin, beyond our gaze, beyond our understanding.  It illuminates, it triggers a memory, manipulates it and erases it.  At a lost we stand fractured searching to regain that moment. To retrieve what was once. How the spirit claims the soul as we grow with the earth, and the universe, and the heavens above and the hells below.  Prism is a projection installation that looks at the relationship of light and memory through the lenses of a man, a woman, and child.

Title: Waiting

eve_projection

is a projection piece that plays on the idea of the intermission, a pause between activity where the viewers gets to relax and enjoy each other’s company while anticipating the upcoming events.
