Guggenheim Fellowship

Chico MacMurtrie's Guggenheim Fellowship year is in full swing at ARW's second studio in Bisbee, Arizona, aka the "Amorphic Ranch", located right on the US-Mexico border. While MacMurtrie/ARW continue their research and development of the Border Crossers, they are currently working on a new inflatable outdoor sculpture: Pneuma Fountain. Pneuma Fountain will be inaugurated on June 14th, 2017 at Kremsmuenster Monastery in Austria.

Border Crossers comprise a series of lightweight robotic sculptures that poetically explore the notion of borders and boundary conditions. Their choreographed performance, originating on both sides of the border, would stage a symbolic connection and reinforce the hope for peace in locations where reconciliation is thought to be impossible.
