Just as an artist might say their medium is sculpture or painting, I’d say the medium of my YouTube series Painted Dreams isn’t “video art” or “essay film,” but soap opera. And if The Bold and the Beautiful is streamable for free on CBS. com, then Painted Dreams, as its mirror, must be equally accessible.
Last summer BUILD sat down with developer, professor, author of The Carbon Efficient City, and urban planning superhero A-P Hurd. They discussed making the world a better place through sustainable lifestyle patterns and taking action on Seattle’s prickly density and parking issues.
Queer spacetime permeates throughout social media platforms—particularly in relation to the consumption of digital media arts in our transient, nontransparent, and smart-device-fed ecologies.

People I grew up with, celebrities, ASMR stars, former partners, fluffy dogs, professional athletes, contemptible government officials—I saw them all evenly.
In autumn 2018, BUILD sat down with Ed Weinstein of Seattle-based Weinstein A+U to discuss the prefabricated, modular Papali Wailea project he designed and codeveloped on Maui in 2008. They discussed his design approach for the tropics, creating a spirit of place, and how to keep pests out of architecture.
I realized that while others had labeled the Biosphere 2 project a failure, to me it was also a success. We learned something really important—we do not fully understand or appreciate the intricacies of our world and how it works.

As a curator, I have strived to place viewers inside of the digital, giving tangible boundaries to that infinite space. The gallery is my medium; I work collaboratively with artists to realize their software-based works within physical rooms.

To ARCADE’s dedicated readers, supporters, and community members:
We have some significant news to share with you about ARCADE. After more than 18 years with the organization, ARCADE’s executive director/editor, Kelly Rodriguez, is stepping down from her role this spring to pursue a new opportunity in our design community. While it is hard to imagine ARCADE without Kelly, we wholeheartedly support her next chapter.
We are working with Kelly on timing, but you may trust that she will shepherd through the publication of our upcoming winter issue, 37.1, The Simulated Metropolis, which we will launch on Thursday, February 28 at the 9th & Thomas building in Seattle’s South Lake Union (more info coming soon). At the launch, we will take the opportunity to celebrate Kelly and her tremendous contributions to ARCADE over the last two decades. We hope that you will join us.
In the coming weeks, ARCADE’s current board will be exploring what comes next for the organization. We look forward to sharing more with you—we’re excited to imagine the possibilities for ARCADE’s future. If you have any questions or would like to take part in this period of transition, please contact Jason Bergevin, Board president, at email@example.com.
Thank you as always for your ongoing support of ARCADE.
—ARCADE Board of Trustees
