A performance installation by Rob Cosgrove and Takafumi Ide

In concert:
Monday, May 14, 2018
9:30PM – 11:00PM
Staller Center Recital Hall

In exhibition:
Tuesday, May 15, 2018
7:30PM – 9:30PM
Tabler Blackbox Theatre

This project was made possible with the generous support of the Stony Brook Graduate Student Organization (GSO).

flickering is a performance installation created by percussionist Rob Cosgrove and artist Takafumi Ide. Using various percussion instruments, amplifiers, fans, and kinetic fabric sculptures, the immersive work is a meditation on the percussionist’s tactile relationship with sustained sound. By deconstructing and recombining sounds into new noisy textures, flickering questions whether sustain is, in fact, an aural deception. Much like how a gust of wind is created by the many rotations of a fan’s blades, perhaps sustain is also just a summation of innumerous little parts.

IAM Pocket Sized

My two drawings have been showing in this juried exhibition.


IAM Pocket Sized

Location: Islip Art Museum http://islipartmuseum.org/
Curated by Rhonda Cooper
Duration: June 28 – September 13, 2015
Reception: Sunday, June 28, from 1 – 4 PM

IAM Pocket Sized invited artists from around the world to create art that fits in the palm of your hand! I AM Pocket Sized exhibits a large survey of paintings, drawings, collages, sculpture, and more.

In today’s art world, where the notion that bigger is better seems to be too-often taken for granted, it’s refreshing to see that contemporary artists are continuing to produce work on a small scale as well. While small-scale paintings and sculptures, or maquettes, have often been produced as preliminary studies for larger-scale works, the artists represented in the IAM’s current exhibition demonstrate that small works hold a valid and unique place of their own in an art world often dominated by more sizable creations.

IAM Pocket Sized features Detlef E. Aderhold, Max Victor Alper, Lisa Argentieri, Susan Barrasi, Linda Beckerman, Ennid Berger, Phyllis Bilick, Katey Carey, Darlene Charneco, Ye-seul Choi, John Cino, Denise Collado, John Crimmins, Rosetta DeBerardinis, JoAnne Dumas, Shana Einhorn, Cara Enteles, Ann Fox, Reu’ven Gayle, Tony Geiger, Gabriella Grama, Michael Griske, Barbara Grossman-Karyo, Sylvia Harnick, Jeanne Heifetz, Neddi Heller, Katherine Hiscox, Paul Hitchen, Kyle Horne, Takafumi Ide, Debbie Johnston, Heidi Jukes, Drew Kane, Deborah Katz, Heejung Kim, Bernard Klevickas, Kathy Klompas, Jeni Kobylarz, Elizabeth Kolligs, Rachelle Krieger, Deanna Lee, Cynthia Loewen, Jennifer Maggio, Bobbi Mastrangelo, Claudia Mirzaali, Lauren Monte, Pat Moran, Alexandra Muzek, Stephanie Navon-Jacobson, Fred Neudoerffer, Vanessa Nguyen, Keith Perkins, Ramona Perrin, Mario Politi, Richard Quinn, Evelyn Ramos, Andreas Rentsch, Alan M. Richards, Deena des Rioux, Helen Rousakis, Sue Runkowski, Lorena Salcedo-Watson, Laurie Samara-Schlageter, Jane Schiowitz, Sungsook Setton, Alisa Shea, Sally Shore, Ruby Silvious, Megan Sirianni-Brand, Elena Soterakis, Ted Stamatelos, Stelios Stylianou, Chanika Svetvilas, Dianne Talan, Christine Verga-Maday, Gina Vigliarolo, Mary Waka, Caroline Waloski, Sharon Way-Howard, Patricia Yantz, Nancy Yoshii, Courtney Young, Helen Zajkowski, JoAnne Zambito, and Anthony Zummo
