CIT Multiverse 3795... A Public Installation for the San Jose Childrens Museum

  Well on our way, this rag-tag team of misfits navigate the great black universe.  Watch, the very fabric of existence unfolds before your eyes.  The birth of planets and solar systems, the tireless and neverending battle of navigating through astroid belts and war-ing pla-nets.  Avoid space worms at all costs and try not to get burned by solar flares, but most of all, enjoy the show!!!


Our second Open Make was a whirlwind of fast cars, zebra stripped tape, hot glun action, and art saturated mayhem.  Jesse Roadkill and Michael Murnane along with the Bedford Gallery and their magic team of volunteers took the unknown number of humans, young and old, on a car making frenzy.  Long live cardboard !!!! The abundant and forgiving medium.


Please enjoy this set of photographs from the latest exhibit of the Cardboard Institute of Technology entitle "Super Track."   It is currently up at the Bedford Gallery in Walnut Creek.  This collection was taken by, Roadkill and Alianna.  A special THANKS! to Alianna for capturing the magic the night of the opening.
