Virtual Reality Comes to Carbondale Arts

In a series of demonstrations from Aspen to Basalt last week, local artists tried out a new medium: sculpting and painting in virtual reality. 

For the last several years Brian Colley has endured a dual uncertainty: whether or not to surgically remove a mass around his pituitary gland at the base of his bran, and the uncertainty of experiencing puberty at the age of 38. That's enough to knock some people down or out. But Brian used his travails as inspiration for a new exhibition of art at the Launchpad. The show will hang for two more weeks.

Community Office for Resource Efficiency (CORE) has invited four different valley artists to make 8-foot by 8-foot billboards for public display starting next week, and the pieces will have some things in common. They’ll all be black-and-white, bilingual, and contain the same slogan: “THIS ART IS
MADE FROM CARBON EMISSIONS / ESTA PIEZA ESTA HECHA CON
EMISIONES DE CARBONO.”
