Michael Oliveri at Lamar Dodd

Sublime landscape images by Michael Oliveri at the Lamar Dodd School of Art's main gallery.

These must be experienced in person, so if you live in Athens, please don't miss this show. They are huge (about 10' long) micrographs, digitally stitched together from multiple (FEI)field emission gun scans (more commonly known as (SEM)Scanning Electron Microscope scans). Close-up views of nano forms that so resemble landscapes or moonscapes, you'll expect to see the tail fins of a lunar lander in the corner. Michael is head of digital media at UGA, a designer with ADD (Athens Design Development) and is emerging as an important American artist in the field of digital media.

Keith Thurman's new mural on Broad st.

New mural in Athens
Next to a big empty field where Kudzu Coffee used to be on Broad St, by the BP gas station at the corner of Evans and Dearing Ext., is a new mural going up. Keith Thurman is painting the back wall of what is going to be a jazz club, and intends to paint the entire building eventually. It's a beautiful expression of the neighborhood and not far from the sculpture garden at Colima Ave & Rose St.

Here is the CLR (cigarette litter receptacle) designed by my group ADD for the city of Athens.

They'll be installing them on parking meters all over downtown at the end of this week, April 10 & 11. We have a little display up at the Lyndon House that explains our design and collaborative process with the city.

If you must smoke, please use these receptacles. Cigarette butts aren't biodegradable and when thrown on the ground, they get washed into storm drains and into lakes and streams.

Here you go, nice springy colors and everything.
