Ignition Northwest member Mark 2 tipped us off that Tesseract – an INW Art Grant recipient – was recently featured on Geekwire.com. Tesseract is an interactive piece that uses motion sensors via Microsoft Kinect to control 216 flame effects.
Complete with quotes from artist James Reinhardt, photos of the piece at Burning Man from Adam Philipp, and a cool video the article gives this dynamic piece some well-deserved love. Head on over to Geekwire.com and check it out in full.
The Modern American Chicken opens at Washington Hall for a limited run, reintroducing Seattleites to the original pop-up restaurant: a five course dinner blending interactive theatrics and fine dining. The menu struts through the life of a chicken from a Country Egg in a Nest of Parmesan to a Roasted Chicken Stuffed with Handmade Sausage and Habañero Cherries. Nordo’s food is always local, elegant and delicious, and Nordo’s story is this food. The Modern American Chicken tells the tale of Henrietta the Chicken’s glorious journey from egg to platter.
Event: Café Nordo Presents The Modern American Chicken
Location: Washington Hall (153 14th Avenue Seattle, WA 98122)
Date and Time: October 11 – November 24 (Thurs-Sun)

Eight strangers find themselves in a room with no exit. They are isolated from the world in a bunker where supplies are scarce. In the absence of enough, the new arrivals see themselves in a different light: vindictive and kind, desperate and hopeful. With no allies but each other, 8 disparate personalities vie for survival, connection, and a way out.
“The Way Out” is 90 minutes of heart-stopping acrobatics, aerial, theater and dance. It is a truly contemporary form of storytelling, using the raw physicality of the performers, video projection, the choreography of Elizabeth Rose and artistic direction of Terry Crane. “The Way Out” spotlights a small company of 8 acrobats with their hearts on their sleeves and their calluses worn smooth.
Featuring performances by:
Tanya Brno, Marta Brown, Arne Bystrom, Emma Curtiss, Joselynn Engstrom, Tyler Ferraro, Elizabeth Rose, Jonathan Rose

Here is one of Shakespeare most famous speeches as performed by Kenneth Brannagh in an Oscar nomintated performance from 1989’s “Henry V”.
He that shall live this day, and see old age,
Will yearly on the vigil feast his neighbours,
And say “To-morrow is Saint Crispian.
Then will he strip his sleeve and show his scars,
And say “These wounds I had on Crispian’s day.”
Old men forget; yet all shall be forgot,
But he’ll remember, with advantages,
What feats he did that day. Then shall our names,
Familiar in his mouth as household words-
Harry the King, Bedford and Exeter,
Warwick and Talbot, Salisbury and Gloucester-
Be in their flowing cups freshly rememb’red.

More good works coming from the Burning Man Community at Large! Today we have a message from Scott London who created an organization called “ReVITALize.” Their goal is to bring the collective consciousness of Burning Man to the outside world. If you have school age children, this will be of particular interest to you. Read on….
“Our Mission is to take one of the principles of burning man, “Leave no trace” and use it to educate kids across the country on the importance of recycling plastic by recycling their TOOTHBRUSH.
The Toothbrush is an everyday item that many of us forget is often made from plastic. We are asking schools to participate in collecting old used toothbrushes to help us build a communal art project.
It’s estimated that over ONE BILLION toothbrushes make their way to landfills annually and takes several hundred years for these plastic toothbrushes to decompose into our soil. We are now in a full-blown plastic epidemic threatening our environment. Lets use our collective power in putting plastic in its proper place through recycling.
We have created a year round sustainable program for every school that participates in our art recycling project. It’s a great program where your school earns .02 cents for every piece of plastic they collect and recycle. In addition, our organization will be giving away a $5,000 grant to one school through a collection contest.
We need your help in spreading this campaign to your regional group of burners who have a child in school or have a direct relationship with a school. We’re looking for as many schools as possible to participate.
If there’s anyone who’s interested in getting their schools involved, they can E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to start the process of registering. The process is simple. We’ll walk you through each step. Once your school is registered, they’ll receive a ReVITALize bin to start collecting toothbrushes.
Thank you for your help and participation.”
