Small Wind Turbine Design and Construction Workshop

In a five-day workshop, Sept 23-27, Antioch College students and community wind power enthusiasts will learn how to make a relatively quiet and durable 10 feet diameter wind turbine from scratch. This design is ideal for those who are interested in building their own wind power systems from scratch for fun, to save money, or for generating power in the developing world. The instructor of the course is Dan Bartmann, co-author of <em>Homebrew Wind Power: A hands-on guide to harnessing the wind</em> (Buckville Publications, 2009). 

For more information or to register for the course, please see the course details.

Climate Conversations

A recently-leaked Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) draft report notes that we are causing “irreversible damage to the planet” by not curbing our GHG emissions. Please join your friends and neighbors on October 9th to share your concerns and ideas for personal and societal change.  We’ll start with clips from the just-released film “Disruption”; hear stories and see film clips from the Yellow Springs contingent to the New York Climate March; get an update on the IPCC process from UD Professor Bob Brechha; and learn what we can do next.

 

This conversation is co-sponsored by The Arthur Morgan Institute for Community Solutions, Glen Helen, Antioch College, and Tecumseh Land Trust.

Disappearing Acts talk/reception with Eric William Carroll

An artist talk/reception with Eric William Carroll will be held in the gallery on Friday, October 23, 2014, 7-9pm. 

Eric William Carroll is an artist exploring photography in all its forms. By reenacting photography’s cultural and technological history, he aims to reveal the medium’s elementary characteristics and metaphorical potential, as well as our expectations and desires for the art form. “I’m interested in blurring the line between nature and technology. The obsolution of older technologies is what moves the man-made closer to the realm of nature. That’s what attracts me. Essentially, all of this work is about time. I’m interested in how we feel when things don’t last as long as we want them. It’s a strange mixture of nostalgia, sadness and beauty.”
 
Born and raised in the Midwest, Carroll has bounced between New York and San Francisco and currently teaches at Macalester College in St. Paul, Minnesota. His work has been exhibited widely, including the New Orleans Museum of Art, the Camera Club of New York, the Museum of Contemporary Photography, and SF Camerawork. Carroll has participated in residencies with the MacDowell Colony, Rayko Photo Center and the Blacklock Nature Sanctuary, and was the winner of the 2012 Baum Award for Emerging Photographers. He is represented by Highlight Gallery in San Francisco.
