Astro Space Party

– Predictions for WO 3.20.12 with Kirsten Leenaars WEDNESDAY, MARCH 21, 2012 AT 12:57PM – It’s an exciting week here at Astro Space Party, as we are proud to present a collaborative video by Kirsten Leenaars – hooray! Kirsten is a true impresario, transforming and synthesizing collected narratives into smart, pervasive works that transcend distinctions between media disciplines with such voracious abandon, we’re left wondering what has ever kept us contained. Kirsten recently turned the MCA into a thirteen episode interactive soap opera (yes – really) for a project called On Our Way to Tomorrow, curated by Tricia Van Eck.Kirsten made this week’s video with her TA Kendall Babl and their Core, Spring 2012, SAIC students:Aileen Ng, Ali Gutowski, Alejandra Ramirez, Camille Laut, Jae Oh, James Lee, Jemma Hyung, Kennedy Jones, Pil Jae Choi, Siyu Xu, and Zaine Smart. – – Many thanks to all the artists involved! I hear the making was a real astro space party ♥.;)
