SiTE:LAB is excited to present this Special Project in the 6th edition of the UNTITLED, Miami Beach. Radio Station: Miami Folly II is an installation by artist Paul Amenta, and Ted Lott of Lott3Metz Architecture, in collaboration with UNTITLED Radio, Not Design, and DisArt, and in partnership with Xibitz and Kendall College of Art & Design.
UNTITLED, Radio in partnership with Miami-based web station Wynwood Radio will broadcast live from Radio Station: Miami Folly II -- broadcasting talks, discussions, sound and performance-based work from the fair to a broader audience. UNTITLED Radio, developed by Programming Director Amanda Schmitt, includes an extensive schedule of live and pre-recorded audio and musical performances, curated playlists, and experimental recordings.
Not Design will operate a tabletop letterpress within the structure, producing live content during the fair that will be displayed on the structure’s wall that will include daily updates on the UNTITLED Radio program and the fair’s special events schedule. Not Design is a collaborative studio interested in solving problems in unconventional ways. The end results are not only that they design ARTIFACTS (things) but that they identify needs and fill them. They aim to have an impact by making education, information and experiences more relevant.
DisArt Director, Chris Smit will present the DIStopia podcast as part of the UNTITLED Radio program. DIStopia looks at disability culture from the inside out. DIStopia is the podcast development by DisArt, a multi-platform, culture building organization achieving its mission through an international disability arts festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan. The mission of DisArt is to change perceptions about disability, one work of art at a time.
Xibitz provided critical fabrication and logistical support for this project. Xibitz partners with architecture and design firms, corporations, museums, universities, and healthcare facilities in the execution of one-of-a-kind, experiential spaces.
Kendall College of Art and Design provided generous financial support for this project. Located in the heart of downtown Grand Rapids, Kendall College of Art and Design, Ferris State University (KCAD) is committed to creating lasting impact in West Michigan and beyond through collaborative partnerships, cultural innovation, and an educational model that develops the talent of individuals into a force for intellectual growth, individual creativity, and community engagement.
