Please join us at ArtZone 461 Gallery, 461 Valencia St. SF, CA on Tuesday January 19th 2010 at 6:30 pm for the first Panel Discussion associated with our current exhibition, The Seduction of Duchamp.  Architects Zoe Prillinger & Luke Ogrydziak will discuss the creation of their piece in the show, Time-Out. The panel will address how the architects’ piece, created for the exhibition, relates to Marcel Duchamp and the implications of algorithmic design and probability as an new Art form.

Time-Out is a sculpture about 7 square inches made of poly-jet resin.  It was created with the help of software programming language C++ and following principles of randomness.  The Artists explain:  “A space-filling machine releases incipient curves into a closed space.  Endowed with velocity and an erratic sense of direction, the curves wander freely, indifferent and indeterminate, constrained only by the law of non-self-intersection.  Eventually, the curves exhaust their geometric potential and the computational limit of their maker”.  The inclusion of Time-out in the exhibition opens new possibilities and scale for the use of architectural principles in contemporary Art.

The artists will also answer questions related to their practice as partners in Ogrydziak/Prillinger Architects (OPA).  Architect and entrepreneur Jeffrey Krauss will moderate the discussion that includes questions submitted by Theo Armour.  Mr. Armour worked as a program manager for many releases of the leading design software AutoCad.  He will joins us via phone from NY city.  The panel discussion is endorsed by AIA San Francisco, a Chapter of the American Institute of Architects.
