What happens when science and spectacle meet? November is Aviation History Month, so soar into the weekend with two tales of ballooning

    Two Tales of Ballooning
    This animated video tells two very different stories from the early days of ballooning: the spectacles of Sophie Blanchard and the scientific missions of James Glaisher. The video was produced in 2014 as a part of a collaboration between CHF and students in John Serpentelli's Commercial Animation class at Philadelphia's University of the Arts.

    HIV criminalization to be explored at community panel
    According to Trevor Hoppe, assistant professor of sociology at the University at Albany, SUNY, "criminalization is never the appropriate response to infectious disease." It's an idea that Hoppe explores in his new book, "Punishing Disease: HIV and the Criminalization of Sickness," which he'll be discussing Nov. 17 at William Way LGBT Community Center.

    SRC votes to dissolve, taking first step toward local control of schools
    Many, including Mayor Kenney, have wondered aloud in the past if the dissolution of the SRC would damage relations with Harrisburg and imperil attempts at cooperation. Monson and Geary, however, said they noticed no change in lawmaker attitudes toward the formula change, even as the momentum gathered for local control.

GET TO KNOW: Robyn Horn - "Before I was asked to participate in this exhibition, I was unaware of Brian Dickerson’s work. When Miriam Seidel brought it to my attention, I was immediately drawn in and felt that his work related to mine in many ways. I could understand why, as a curator, Miriam thought there were aspects of our work that held parallel ideas. I have been exploring the use of paint on my wood sculptures for several years, and have found many different methods of introducing paint as well as other things to the forms I make. The depth that Brian achieves with his built up surfaces, his color palette, the linear geometry he uses and the distressed textural qualities of his work— all of these aspects appeal to me. Over the last decade, I have come to believe that exploration is a very important aspect of making art. It is a little more difficult to do that with sculpture than with painting, simply because the artist must plan ahead when using the subtractive process. When I started painting, I was able to experiment more. By making more mistakes, I was able to ascertain which mistakes to keep and expand upon, and which to discard. That was a valuable lesson learned. Unconscious competence is the level of mentality that has helped me realize that I can be sure of my decisions as I work. The concept that bridges the different Series of my works in this exhibition has to do with perception, and whether what we perceive is what is real. I enjoy challenging viewers to make sense of a piece of my artwork, how it's made and what it means. It gives them an opportunity to assess it in their minds, enabling them to come to an understanding about what the truth is about each one. I also enjoy misleading them a little in order to capture their attention a little longer. Working with small metal objects that are not immediately identifiable increases the ambiguity of purpose, particularly in the Industrial and Reliquary Series. The perception of the Slipping Stones being separate components is also somewhat misleading. This misconception furthers the idea that has evolved throughout my work for over thirty years and has moved into subsequent Series without my realizing it. Unconscious competence again, what we all strive for." ( Artists Statement)
