Creative Loafing's BEST OF THE BAY 2013
BEST SATIRACAL Arrrrr!TWORK
For Tempus Projects' Privacy Redux --- an alternative to the Curtis Hixon's Gasparilla Arts Festival held at adjacentKiley Gardens ---digital artist and UT professor Santiago Echeverry remixed hundred of mugshots of Tampa Bay residents and the vintage Bucs pirate logo into a dizzying animation and created a mosaic of Tampa Bay Buccaneers' former mascot Bucco Bruce using the jailhouse pics. The installation cleverly and humorously (and somewhat tragically) invoked the drunken revelry of the Tampa's annual pirate parade. Other participants in the show curated by Kurt Piazza included Gigi Lage, Hildebrando Belizzio, Diran Lyons, Danny Olda, Carolina Sands and Mario Schambon.
