Electric Sky brings together artists, makers, technologists, designers and friends to collaboratively engage with the environment in new and exciting ways. The invent included a camping artists retreat, and an art show and party on Saturday, August 6th. This year the theme was A Midsummer Night’s Tempest. Through our arsenal of new art and tech mediums and tools, we reimagined those embodiments of human fancy such as fairies and trolls that dwell amongst the forest, the sky, the river, and the earth during our encounters with the great outdoors.

December 9, 5-8 pm, Seattle at the Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar
Please join us for an experimental, collaborative show exploring the art and tech of interactive play — ranging from the buttons, switches and buzzers of electromechanical machines, to the interactivity of artificial intelligence. In this show artists and tech creatives deconstruct the elemental components of games and explore their place in our cultural zeitgeist.
December 9, 5-8 pm, Seattle at Passable
The Cassini–Huygens space probe was launched in 1997, an ambitious thirteen year exploration of Saturn and its moons, that transmitted back troves of stellar information. Up until now, the last 48 hours of data has been a carefully guarded secret. Join us on this exhibition, where we analyze the secrets of these strange missing days.
Out of time. Out of place. SPACE AVAILABLE is the universal, community-based, classified ad spectrum; for your inner and outer sanctum. Specializing in real estate and unreal states. Please tread carefully.

An art installation in the Vermillion Art Gallery and Bar
In the age of digital media, there’s a renewed nostalgia for the kinetic, sensory bumps and clicks of mechanical machines, as exemplified by the resurgent popularity of pinball games here in the Pacific Northwest.

See our announcement and images from our opening night.
