Equilibrium: The Human Mash Up
Olympic Mills Commerce Center

Equilibrium: The Human Mash Up

RSVP: http://tinyurl.com/art-tech08 Read reviews of the first of three Mash Up events: http://tinyurl.com/yelpreview08

Featuring Live DJs Echoik & Frequency

Working Artists Network + Software Association of Oregon introduce Equilibrium: The Human Mash Up. In the spirit of disruptive ideas and breaking down barriers we ask, "How can art and technology and the synergy of the two address humanity's next evolutionary step?" Four categories of work will address these questions and collectively speak to the power of human ingenuity. We invite artistic and technological creators to submit their work that addresses human survival in an era of interspecies evolution, revolution, and devolution.

Art and technology are two words that for many represent vastly different worlds, and for generations have largely existed along parallel, yet non-convergent lines. But now the potential for unprecedented collaboration is here. Ever-evolving technologies allow us to share ideas across borders, both geographic and symbolic. Such potential for shared ideas has helped break down long standing silos that for generations inhibited expansive thought and human progression.

The lines are now blurred. Creators of all sorts now have public space to mutually ponder where we've been, where we are, and where we're going. By sharing once segregated perspectives, we can see the world through a different lens and evolve as a species like never before.

E= m4 humanity - Submissions will fall into one of four conceptual areas:

Momentum: captures the inertia and velocity of human innovation Maintenance: captures the drive for ecological and human preservation Multiplicity: captures the boundless potential of human convergence Mobility: captures the facilitation of human movement and idea exchange http://tinyurl.com/yelpreview08

Design à Trois - "Died Young, Stayed Pretty"
through Cinema 21

Design à Trois

Design à Trois is a three night event exploring rock poster design, book cover design and type design. We’ll kick things off with acclaimed rock poster design documentary, “Died Young, Stayed Pretty.,” by filmmaker, Eileen Yaghoobian. Next up will be “You SHOULD Judge a Book by Its Cover” – an insightful and amusing presentation on 50+ of the weirdest book cover designs – by NYC designer/comedian, Patrick Borelli. And, last but certainly not least, we will conclude with the national premiere of Punchcut’s newest installment of the Typophile Film Fest, a collection of typographic film shorts.

Cancel any existing plans – this event is not to be missed!

August 25, 2009 7:00pm Died Young, Stayed Pretty. by filmmaker Eileen Yaghoobian “Died Young, Stayed Pretty” (http://www.diedyoungstayedpretty.com/) is a candid look at the underground poster culture in North America. This unique documentary examines the creative spirit that drives these indie graphic artists. They pick through the dregs of America’s schizophrenic culture and piece them back together. What you end up with is a caricature of the black and bloated heart that pulses greed through the US economy. The film gives us intimate look at some of the giants of this modern subculture.

  • Directly after the film, Eileen and the following panel of local rock poster designers will field questions from the audience, led by moderator, Tim DuRoche: Art Chantry, Dan Stiles, Guy Burwell, Mike King and Lloyd Winter

Film venue: Cinema 21, 616 NW 21st Ave., Portland, OR Cost: (members/non-members/students) Regular Price: $8.00 Student: $7.00 62+Senior: $5.00 Child: $5.00

Yuri's Night Party with PSAS
Portland State University Engineering Building

The Portland State Aerospace Society (PSAS), a student aerospace group at Portland State University with decades of experience in high-powered amateur rocketry, is hosting a Yuri’s Night Party, in honor of the international space holiday.

Fifty-five years ago, Yuri Gagarin was the first person to travel into space when his spacecraft completed one full orbit about the Earth on April 12, 1961. In honor of his great accomplishment, parties are held worldwide every year to celebrate humanity’s progress in space.

As part of this international celebration, PSAS is hosting a “space race” with challenges and games, technology displays from local rocketry and space groups, engineering labs open to visitors, and food and beverages provided. We will also be screening the film First Orbit, a reconstruction of what Yuri would have seen on his journey.

The event will be held on April 12 from 6:30-9:30 in the Engineering Building of PSU (1930 SW 4th Ave Portland, OR 97201, at the intersection of SW 4th and College). All ages are welcome; there is a recommended $10 donation per person at the door.

Please join us as we celebrate the past, present, and future of space travel!
