SiTE:LAB is excited to present this Special Project in the 6th edition of Untitled, Miam Beach. Radio Station: Miami Folly II is an installation by artist Paul Amenta and architect Ted Lott of Lott3Metz Architecture, in collaboration with Untitled, Radio, Not Design, and DisArt. This project was realized in partnership with Xibitz and Kendall College of Art and 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 Co-Executive Directors, Chris Smit and Jill Blakemore Vyn 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, an arts and cultural organization committed to raising the participation of disabled people through carefully curated contemporary art exhibitions, cutting-edge public events, and consultation.
Xibitz Inc. 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 of Ferris State University 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.
