Living, Breathing Architecture

The Hylozoic Veil combines art, technology, science and an enormous amount of creativity, making it a perfect centerpiece for this Salt Lake City attraction–The Leonardo. This unique three-story sculpture is a “living, breathing,” fully responsive environment that combines physics, chemistry, sculpture, engineering, and even hints of artificial life. It reacts to your presence and paves the way for the responsive architecture of the future.

Oh What a Night!

20150529_205920_resizedBluegrass music, belly dancers and award-winning fantasy film shorts filled The Leonardo’s Costume Carnival on Friday night June 12. Steampunk ladies and fairies wandered the events and exhibit spaces – even Captain America and a unicorn showed up. Local band, Six Feet in the Pine, delighted the crowd with catchy banjo riffs and lovely violin notes.  Hipsteria, a local belly dancer troupe, wowed the crowd with their cabaret-style performances. Another dance duo, Kali & Idi, entertained with dancing veils and even got the audience to join in on the performance.  FilmQuest, the second-largest film festival in Utah, brought three award-winning short films– Death of a Shadow (Oscar-nominated Short, Best Fantasy FilmQuest winner), The Landing (Oscar Short-listed Short, Best of Fest FilmQuest winner), and Premiere Automne (Best Animated Film FilmQuest winner). In short, it was quite a night   To top it off, all museum-goers had a chance to win an individual membership to The Leo. Participants just had to tag #AtTheLeo and post a photo from the event Robert Bixler was anno20150529_203257_resizedunced as the lucky winner at the end of the evening – now he can come to the Leo whenever his heart desires Next month’s Costume Carnival will be held on July 11th, 7-10 pm.
