Odds

A couple of random things today. Over the past six months, I have collaborated with Noah Lamport on a few electronic experiments, and usually I use one or the other pieces at shows. The first picture is a type of theremin that is played through contact points. On this one, "Foundation," the user places their palm on the copper skyline and manipulates the pitch by playing the triangles with their finger tips. It is built into a cigar box and has no exposed wires or controls on the top surface. All circuits copyright Noah Lamport.

MY ESCAPE INTO LIFE AKA "A MILLI"

"Greg Ferris' art is a culmination of playing with art school materials and rejecting art school rules. He re-appropriates textbooks and architectural elements in creating otherworldly scenes that reverse their original connotation.

In a small town full of landscape paintings and glass sculptures, he has ignited a grassroots effort to engage those around him in creating a community with which we all identify. His most recent work, Paraprofessional Magazine, is a vessel allowing young artists to discuss identity in an unedited, unglazed fashion and distribute it to the people searching for just that."

Leg: a solid foundation for greg

I want to tell you guys a little bit about what all this stuff is about.


A while back I made 'Worm-hole.' It was a 10 x 10" steel cube with a hole sucking in through one side and out the other. Then I painted the whole thing black and added white grid lines- warping with the stresses of stretching spacetime. This was my strange little model of the universe, but what else? WTF?
Early on, my instructor for the sculpture class told me I wouldn't be able to do it that way I had proposed, but I went ahead anyway. It was a terrible mess of work hours; I cut the entire thing in two, and heated the remaining solid sides with an acetylene torch and pounded the contours of a quantum dimension before reuniting the pieces. It took forever to achieve such..let's say, organic...results. Yet precisely that, I realized, was the point. To demonstrate some complex theoretical idea through such a primal process of hammering and hammering away, suddenly seemed like such a beautiful metaphor for the human spirit. Our will to manipulate destiny among the absurd paradox of our condition! I had finally identified what it was that I had been doing with my odd works: Folk Science!


New Site!






Mosephine and I have just launched our new site at CatsAndHorsesClub.blogspot.com that will feature upcoming events & provisions. :D

A concept page for '30 Songs' flyer.


"Prior to humanity’s awareness to it, the universe was a coherent, self-regulating entity awaiting discovery. Humankind’s additions to and modifications of that preexisting order often damaged it, so that the architect’s charge is a kind of restoration effort requiring him to incorporate his understanding of the eternal in every design, as did the Pantheon’s makers, hence its everlasting appeal. “What the space wants to be” is itself- that is, it wants to assume its rightful place in and be a proper manifestation of the eternal order of things."
