Wormhole: FILMA Art Collective
The first collective effort in this new studio is an upgrade to the sound reactive light-tunnel, Wormhole. Standing at 8′ high, 8′ wide, and 20′ long, Wormhole serves as a metaphor for the magnificence of transformation. Special thanks to William Burdette for envisioning and engineering a really fancy new frame and the fantabulous Robert Graf, the genius behind the electrons.

Article For Publication By Barry Tribuzio
“…an ever evolving trinity of form and visions.”
All bright summer haze will fade, a moments grace is but a memory..
A photograph of fleeting smiles, these as well will drift away.
It is all about Memory.
To share in this brief embrace we call Life.
A celebration and a mourning at the same time.
Every breath is an exhalation of time passing, into the crisp sharper focus of Autumn.
The air is more blue, a cooler aspect draws our eyes in anticipation of flowing spirits
And dreams far beyond those midsummer nights.
Three Studios, an ever evolving trinity of form and visions, will attempt a summoning of these
elusive ghosts of memory with sound,light and artistry.
Studio 23 presents it’s annual Blacklight Art Show, a feast of glowing colors and shadowed
contrasts in a light spectrum that may be unfamiliar to some, and a sense memory feast to
others. These pieces are altered states of mind and float above their substrates, conjuring
spells of form and color.
A video installation,and an LED tunnel will further beguile all who attend.
Music will be performed. Sound, art and video in a fully immersive experience is guaranteed to warm the October chill and invite those ghosts to linger and commune with us.
3 Dot Gallery will present its Memento Mori Show, which translates to “Remember Death’..
An exhibition reminding us of the impermanence of all things, and how this lesson is really so
much of our collective art history, and underpins the drive for creative expression in the face of
time, decay, and mortality.
The beauty of life is in recognition of its brevity.
Fireside Red Door Gallery will once again reveal its beauty beneath the night sky, and is a
wonderful spot to see and reflect upon the sum of the three.
October beckons us to gather falling leaves, to feel their brittle veins and know that this too, is
Join the Dance, with the might of all senses, and revel in the Now.
