Last week, the Daily ran an article about our very own Chris Charbonneau, member of the Office Team at the Language Center. In the article, he tells the story of being an undergraduate artist at the U of M. You can see the full article online at http://www.mndaily.com/2010/11/09/artists-their-own-words?page=1
Since then, we also learned about the artistic talents of Multimedia Lab employee Paul Fosaaen, who currently has an installation on display at the Soap Factory's volunteer biennial, titled A Very Much More, featuring works from 54 Soap Factory volunteers. His installation, "Nous nous duchampons / we duchamp ourselves", focuses on manipulating everyday objects like plungers and toilets and finding humor in language. "Nous nous duchampons" features his own decorated plungers, including odes to Henri Matisse and Pablo Picasso, as well as works by his fiance and friends. The exhibit runs until December 5th.
