This Friday! We will be there from 7 PM—11 PM.

Staycation, A collaborative home collection by Eric Trine and Will Bryant

October 11—December 1, 2013 at SuperMaker, Portland OR.  

Opening Reception: Friday October 11, 2013.

Staycation is a home collection by artist/designers Will Bryant and Eric Trine. Riffing on the notes from their Alley-Oop collaboration earlier this year,  Bryant and Trine have produced a series of pieces that are explicitly useful. Whereas, the objects created in Alley-Oop could be used for something, these objects exist as specific things—a chair, a lamp, a table, etc…

In true Bryant and Trine fashion, they have turned this project into a game of bumper bowling, using these constraints to bounce off each other—creating ever more interesting ways to knock those pins down. The shortest distance between two points may in fact be in a line, but where’s the fun in that?

Staycation will be on display until December 1st at Supermaker. Pieces from this collection are available for purchase and the koozies are free! Look for updates on the world wide web: a scheduled artist talk and “panel discussion” to be determined. Please remember to chill or be chilled.

Huge thanks to everyone for hanging out last night at Staycation and supporting Eric Trine and me! We had a blast. 

Big time thanks to my dude Jason Rens of Supermaker for hosting us and also big time props to Max Miller from Gifff Booth for capturing good times in 3d! (See all of the gifs here)

Stay tuned for a panel discussion, installation images, and you can check out the window display at Supermaker until December 1st. Pieces from the collection are still available; please inquire if interested in furniture, embossed plates, or limited edition canvas prints.
