Locust Projects is pleased to host a one night exhibition Friday, August 16 showcasing ImpactArte, the most recent endeavor of Miami-based artist collaborative, Funner Projects.

Funner Projects, established in 2009, is the interactive collaboration between Justin H. Long and Robert “Meatball” Lorie. Their latest endeavor involved the creation of 8 unique art making contraptions. While loosely based on art history, these apparatuses created a series of new masterpieces. Under the leadership of Emmy Award winning director Andrew Hevia and support from Yahoo.com Latin America, the art making process was documented at an incredible 3000 frames per second so each minute detail is not missed.  The 8 videos as well as the apparatuses and creations will be on display together for one night only, August 16th 2013.  The videos will later be available to see on Yahoo.com Latin America’s homepage.

Funner Projects is Justin H. Long, 32 and Robert “Meatball” Lorie, 31, both born and bred in Miami, FL. Introduced via the world of freestyle BMX and collaborating on videos since as early as 2002, Funner Projects began as the two returned to Miami from school (Long MFA CalArts ’08, Lorie BFA SMFA Boston ’07) and has been creating contemporary art related spectacles ever since. Organizing their own exhibitions has resulted in projects at The De La Cruz Collection Miami, FL, White Box New York, NY, and recently winning an Emmy Award in conjunction with Andrew Hevia.
