“Phlogiston” curated by LA-based American curator KJ Baysa with Croatia’s Branko Franceschi, opens in July 2015 in the Museum of Fine Arts, Split, Croatia.

Shown are symbols, corresponding to the Hebraic letter “koph” in Cabbalistic mysticism and eighteenth-century chemistry, used for phlogiston.

The phlogiston theory is an obsolete scientific theory that postulated a fire-like element called phlogiston, contained within combustible bodies and released during combustion. The name comes from the Ancient Greek φλογιστόν phlogistón (burning up), from φλόξ phlóx (flame).

The phenomena of flame and burning are the escape of phlogiston from materials. Mysticism is mixed with fascination and fear when dealing with fire, considered one of the five elements, used in religion, ritual, and science for purification, sterilization and demonstrations of power and destruction. Fear of fire is one of our most primal instincts, is invoked in visions of hell. A cataclysmic nuclear fire is seen as the end of the world. Fire is considered one of the most devastating natural disasters associated with significant numbers lives lost.

Phlogiston assembles a group of artists who work with fire as incendiary medium, method or glowing image, addressing issues of the environment, identity, and finitude.

Participating artists and artworks by: Bill Viola (video), Ana Mendieta (video), Croatian, Serbian, and Bosnian artists, and select international artists.

CROSSINGS - photographic series solo show by Andrew Binkley on view now till May 4, 2015 at the Vietnamese/Asia/Pacific Fusion restaurant, The Pig and the Lady, in Chinatown, Honolulu. Although we are not holding an opening reception, we will be holding a closing event near the beginning of May.

“'Crossings' is composed of photographs of an alley market in Suzhou, China, shot from an overhead perspective during various periods of time. These multiple images of people passing by on their daily routines are then layered together, merging in and out of each other. In capturing these fleeting encounters, 'Crossings' works with the themes of intersecting or sharing paths, integrating or transforming relationships, as well as the unknown or transient connections between people through time.” -- Andrew Binkley

My presentation, "Come to Your Senses" on a career exploring the overlapping areas of art and science, at the Strathmore Mansion, Maryland. Check! It launches the series that includes Stefani Bardin (food), David Rothenberg (sound), Rebecca McGinnis (touch), and Sartre Stuelke (visual). I've been asked to help program a similar series for 2016. Thank you, Lauren Campbell, Virgil Wong, and the Strathmore Hall Foundation!!
