Folded Metal 

Wednesday, Jul 21 2010
Math art. Moebius aluminum siding. Bauhaus Escher. Timothy Nolan's art can make your eyes cross if you look at it too hard, or too long, but it's worth it, and fun. His new exhibit, "Tilt," is anchored by a piece called Pitch, which looks like someone origami-ed a mirror. His wall work is large, minimalist collage-style stuff – big, silver swaths of razor power that would look equally at home in an Art Deco living room or an industrial-chic loft space. Nolan is playing with light and reflection, using an aesthetic that draws on the shiny glam of minimalist Op Art, but pushes its meditative qualities more than its eye-trickery.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
