Media Studies alumnus Corey Aumiller (CCAD 2006) is featuring CCAD president Denny Griffith, CCAD’s iconic ART sculpture, and some rather unusual co-stars in a video called Time Tunnel to be released in late September of this year.
Aumiller’s project is part of the Columbus Arts Pop-Up Project (CAP-UP), which is a series of 10 window installations that will be placed in downtown Columbus, OH, in celebration of the city’s bicentennial.
Included in the video are eight ex-presidents who were Ohio natives—in puppet form. Aumiller was tasked with the restoration of the puppets, which were originally displayed at the Center of Science and Industry (COSI) in Columbus.
The video, produced with the help of fellow artist Dan Gerdeman, will feature the eight puppet presidents at various landmarks around Columbus. The video segment featuring Griffith involved three of the puppets working on portraits with the ART sculpture as a backdrop. CCAD’s president (who is always a good sport) offered up helpful artistic advice and encouragement to the puppets/painters.
Other sites include the Ohio Statehouse, the Columbus Metropolitan Library, the Ohio Stadium, and the Ohio State Fair.
The video will be on view in the window of 65 E. State St., Columbus, OH, Sept. 27–Jan. 3.
