Betsy Hunt and Zach Moser currently reside and make art in the Midwest. Zach an animator and prep cook lives in Cedar Falls, IA while Betsy lives in Duluth, MN and teaches Digital Art at the University of Minnesota Duluth. The two artists crossed paths many years ago and had a few ideas in common. Years later they decided the time was right to put there distinct art differences aside and collaborate on the "Fluff Wars"

Fluff Wars: Prologue
A collaboration from Zach and Betsy
Featuring Music from Wet Hair

After generations of peace and prosperity, war was inevitable. The clans each had their own vision, but even the most patient negotiator realized that only fangs and metal would prevail. Soon, even the gentlest beasts of the most complacent clans were plunged into battle. So it began. Welcome to the Fluff Wars.

Weisman Art Museum commissioned Sharon Louden and Eun-K yung Suh to create a new work in relation to the collection for the exhibition, Sympathies. Louden, a New Y ork based sculptor, installation, and public artist, will work with the Frank Gehry designed building. Installation artist, Eun-Kyung Suh, Associate Professor at UMD agreed to work with W AM’s renowned traditional Korean furniture. Sympathies is a part of the Weisman’s yearlong focus on the collection and addresses the popular question of the relevance of museum collections in the twenty- first century.

David Bowen, Associate Professor in the Art and Design Department currently has his work title tele-present wind in Uncontainable a group exhibition at the 2011 International Symposium on Electronic Art in Istanbul.
tele-present wind is a kinetic installation that draws information from the intensity and direction of the wind in a given location. A sensor device attached to a plant stalk installed on the roof of the Visualization and Digital Imaging Lab on the UMD campus detects the movement of the wind. The gathered information from the sensor is sent in real-time to a collective of 50 plant stalks installed in the gallery space in Istanbul. These stalks are connected to mechanisms which are programed to move based on the wind data. The result is a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of the air from a distant location. Therefore the movement of the wind in Duluth is currently being recreated at the exhibition in Istanbul.

Bowen's installation draws information from the intensity and movement of the water in a remote location. Wave data is being collected in real-time from National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration data buoy station. The wave intensity and frequency is scaled and transferred to the mechanical grid structure resulting in a simulation of the physical effects caused by the movement of water from this distant location.

Gloria DeFilipps Brush (Art & Design) was one of the exhibitors in both the 2003 and 2001 art galleries at the SIGGRAPH computer graphics international conferences, in San Diego and Los Angeles, respectively. SIGGRAPH showcases the work of selected individuals working in emerging electronic technologies, and publishes a catalog, as well as sponsoring traveling exhibitions. Brush's photographs were shown in September, 2003, in the traveling exhibition opening presentation by Patrick St. Jean, Paris, France ACM SIGGRAPH chair, in the Auditorium of the Ecole du Louvre. Brush's extended body of creative work involves images about language. She is visually investigating "the photographic representation of the changing aura of language and in particular its relationships with the objects existing in real space. Objects await recognition and are enveloped by words, which form trajectories of both communication and miscommunication. Sometimes words are breaths without voice. They seek a secure syntactic position, but meaning constantly is devised, relocated, and recreated." Works from these series also have been exhibited at such sites at the University of London (D-Art 2002 and 2000), the Kellogg University Gallery at Cal Poly Pomona, the University Art Gallery at Indiana State University at Terre Haute (Extraordinary Things, 2002), SOMARTS Gallery in San Francisco, and The Print Center in Philadelphia.
