Canalscape photos

Canalscape photo by Nick Klofkorn

A photo of the canalscape installation at ASU ART Museum, as part of the season on Defining Sustainability.  I took this photo of the nymphaeum in infrared, which requires special film or a modified camera, because I thought it would look cool.

Infrared turns foliage white and skies black (unless they are overcast.)  There are a few more on the flickr page of the museum which is at

zombies are never really gone…

Come to ASU Art Museum tonight – Friday the 13th – for the premiere screening of artist-in-residence and master vampire slayer Jillian Mcdonald’s exhibition project.

The goodbye party is 5:30 – 7pm in the first floor gallery of the museum. Jillian leaves us for home tomorrow so come and help us see her off!


*The video above, which we’ve titled The Undeath of John Spiak, was an elementary art class project – the kids did their own makeup and their own short film while they were here earlier this week. Is that a cool class or what?

Zombies vs Vampires – tonight!

Opening tonight at ASU Art Museum! Join us!
Show runs through January 9th, 2010.

Zombies vs Vampires is a video installation featuring two videos projected on opposite walls where zombies and vampires stage a dramatic Western-style showdown at dawn in the desert, amidst photographic murals that wrap the gallery in local desert imagery: cacti, mountain, rugged terrain, contemporary ghost towns, and graveyards. This work was created with a wonderful cast of locals in Tempe, Arizona, including 50 actors, 4 videographers, 1 photographer, 10 make-up artists, and 1 sound designer.

Very special thanks to Bluemedia for their generous in-kind printing of a 100-foot wide photo mural.
