Transmodern Festival Jen Kirby, a Baltimore artist, is working on an installation piece that she can't visually describe, save that she's "making an environment. It's like a space that you can be in." Kirby's work will be displayed today and Saturday at the Whole Gallery in the H&H Building, and what she is going for is an installation specific to the space that she is creating it in. "I make things that are temporary and they exist once and they don't ever exist again. Its more a space to exist inside of rather than an object to look at," said Kirby.

Greggy Glitterati, Fluid Movement's own talent agent for the underrepresented, has always felt that Baltimore's local talent is plentiful, just not accessible. This weekend, though, Glitterati has taken it upon himself to present outrageous local talent for all to see at his talent and variety extravaganza, Glitterama! Glitterama! ... Glitterama! Greggy Glitterati is just one of the quirky theatrical characters born out of Baltimore's Fluid Movement, a community- based performance art group that formed in 1998 to give people outlets to perform in unconventional spaces and ways.

When Robert Marbury was 19 years old, he necked with Ricki Lake on camera. At age 29, he spent a year sailing in Indonesia, where he says his ship was attacked by pirates. Four years later, he was one of the three co-founders of the Minnesota Association of Rogue Taxidermists. At age 34, one of his photographs of stuffed animals tied to car grilles was featured in The New York Times - the first of several articles in that august publication in which Marbury has been quoted. And this coming weekend, the 41-year-old Marbury will preside over an installation at Artscape that includes a 7-foot tall Bigfoot swathed in fake fur, as well as a pond from which visitors can fish for canned soda and beer.
