over the past couple years, i’ve been interested in how works emerge from a beginning idea to a point of public presentation. as a way for me to indulge that curiosity i’ve been hosting these events called demostage, which give people opportunities to show some of what they are working on at different stages of their development. the whole idea is adapted from software developers that get together in bars to demo their programs. participants get a chance to communicate some ideas, receive some feedback, and maybe connect with people who can help out. for me, seeing how people work is encouraging, and reminds me that there is always a process.
here is a link to the document i created with the folks at co&co that showcases most of the demos since 2009. click on the link to download the pdf.
i encourage you to get in touch with the artists.
