City Repair is Fun

BY ETHAN TURPIN
@ VOL 16 ON FEB 10, 2016

Ethan Turpin is one of many local people who have seen the potential for our neighborhood spaces to better reflect our values and whimsical impulses. As a professional artist accustomed to the regular hurdles of exhibiting in both public and private space, he was impressed by the access City Repairs methods offer anyone for creative projects in community space. He will share the inspirations and projects of the energized new group that is growing in Santa Barbara for the purpose of "place making" and civic connection.

Ethan Turpin blends old and new media to extend perceptions of humanity’s complex relationships. Working as an independent video producer and artist since 1999, his documentaries and art installations have shown in film festivals, galleries, and museums nationwide, spanning topics such as globalization, wildfire, and climate change. His solo exhibit “Stereocollision” showed at the California Museum of Photography in 2012. The Visions From The New California Award was granted to Turpin in 2010. He received a BFA in 1997 from the Kansas City Art Institute. Ethan finds flow states in drawing, interactive video, and martial arts.
