To kick things off, we have a group composed of Rahul Alexander , Robert Amesbury , Jonathan Brand , Adam Brent, Travis LeRoy Southworth, Ken Madore, Ryan Roa, collectively known as "BroLab". Each of them hail from a different background joined together by camaraderie and their passion for art. They are definitely an interesting group, emphasizing the need to grow both as a group and individual artists. One might say the name "BroLab" invokes a sense of "frattiness". But here in Art in Odd Places, we celebrate their commitment to become a brotherhood of artists in a much a higher degree with a word that fully encompasses who they are: A "frARTernity". And that, ladies and gentlemen, is something you don't see everyday in college.
Let's proceed on getting to know them better, shall we
Aiop: What is Brolab?
Aiop: So what's with the name?
Adam Brent I’m OK with it 2010
Aiop: What made you decide to submit a proposal for the Festival?
BC: We were searching for a venue to pitch an inaugural project when we ran into AiOP’s call for proposals for works along 14th Street. The 2.3 mile span, centralized location, and AiOP framework seemed like an ideal opportunity to explore some of our potential ideas and put them into action.
Aiop: How is the preparation coming along for your piece this October?
BC: We are rolling along and have for the most part finished our yokes and taken some practice runs. We have been joking around that we should probably get in shape given that our performance includes one 24 hr bucket relay from river to river. We have come to discover that water is heavy. We still have to get volunteers and solve some water access issues.
BC: To the far east and to the far west, where it is always wet.
Aiop: Do you have a hidden talent you would like to share?
Sure, we can form 6-man pyramid.
Thank you, BroLab. The possibility of the 6 man pyramid is another reason why you have to be on the lookout for this group this October.
