The Architect Speaks 

Wednesday, Sep 22 2010
Hilary Sample is an architect. She’s an artist. She’s on the faculty at Yale. She’s also part of an architecture and design firm known as MOS that was founded “sometime in 2003” (according to its website) and that uses “playful experimentation, serious research, and old-fashioned problem-solving” in its work. The firm approaches architecture as a set of interrelated issues including traditional concerns such as building performance, fabrication, and structure as well as cultural, social and environmental networks. Some of MOS’ recent work includes a villa in Ordos, Inner Mongolia, as well as a public art installation called Afterparty at the P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center in Long Island City, N.Y. Sample is working on a book called Sick City: A Global Investigation into Urbanism, Infrastructure, and Disease. Her appearance at CCA is co-sponsored by the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art.

  • 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.'"
