It’s hard to remember the last time we heard someone complain that there’s nothing to do in Colorado Springs. The fall arts season is barely underway and it’s already overwhelmed us with the debut of Music Director Josep Caballe Domenech, the Birger Sandzen exhibition at the Fine Arts Center and now the anticipation of the spectacular the Parvana series, which opens tonight with an art exhibition at the I.D.E.A. Space in the Edith Kinney Gaylord Cornerstone Center for the Arts at Colorado College at 4 p.m. (And don’t miss the amazing Eiko and Koma on October 14!)

One of the artists and panelists in the show that opens tonight at I.D.E.A. Space is Joseph Scheer, Professor of Print Media and Co director of the School for Electronic Arts at the School of Art and Design at Alfred University in New York. We spoke with Scheer about many things, including the fine line between new scanning/printing technologies and photography, the limitless and sometimes tedious possibilities of new media, and his grand obsession: moths.
