You’re invited to join us this Friday at 7:00 PM at the Museum of Human Achievement for the unofficial Fantastic Arcade afterparty, as we celebrate the work of arcade of anything Fall 2016 resident artist Robby Kraft.
Robby Kraft (NYC) is perhaps best known for his work in origami. His breathtaking and organic forms, created from the careful folding of paper, have been exhibited internationally.
During his monthlong arcade of anything residency, Kraft has applied his interests in geometry, scale, and play to the world of virtual reality. Shifting Sand Lands is an experimental sandbox rendered simultaneously in virtual and physical worlds. In advance of the opening, you can keep tabs on the development of Shifting Sand Lands on Kraft’s arcade of anything devlog.
For opening night, Kraft will be joined by Nathan Ober and his work The Observer or the Observed?, a sound installation inspired by astrophysics, microtonal sound, and Buddhist thought. We’ll also have refreshments, our world-famous Fantastic Arcade cabinets set up for free play, and a special musical guest that you won’t want to miss.
The arcade of anything event kicks off at 7:00 PM at the Museum of Human Achievement in Austin, TX. Admission is free, but donations–which help fund this and other JUEGOS RANCHEROS programming–are warmly accepted.
[Created in partnership with the Museum of Human Achievement, the arcade of anything artist residency encourages its participants to push into experimental and unexplored territory within digital arts. More information on our residency program can be found here.]
