Ellen Hackl Fagan
Ellen Hackl Fagan is the inventor of The Reverse Color Organ and the ColorSoundGrammar Game, two projects that enable viewers to interact aurally with color. In its fifth iteration, now in collaboration with cognitive scientist Michael Cole, the Reverse Color Organ is being developed into an app and website to put this synaesthetic tool into peoples' hands to be used not only to expand the language of color, but also as a crowd-sourced musical instrument.
Fagan exhibits her work extensively throughout New England and New York City. In June of 2014, Ellen Hackl Fagan expanded her independent curatorial practice into a full time business and is now the owner of ODETTA Gallery in Bushwick, Brooklyn.
ODETTA exhibits works by mid-career artists who have honed their craft and their vision. Directed by artist Ellen Hackl Fagan, special interest is given to contemporary painting, glyphs, music, Color Field, Buddha Mind, Minimalism, playfulness and encyclopedic obsessiveness.
