    Artsy best decribes Alex Olson’s works as "abstract, but that’s not how she would choose to refer to them: “In fact, the way I approach painting is almost the opposite in that nothing is an abstraction of something else,” she says. “It literally is what it is.” Olson’s paintings aim to be exact records of how they were made, self-evident in their construction.

  • Marisa Matarazzo is an Assistant Professor in the Graduate Writing program at Otis. She is the author of Drenched: Stories of Love and Other Deliriums, which Aimee Bender called "a collection that marks its own territory and stamps it out with a textured beauty." Her work has appeared in Faultline, Hobart, Fivechapters, Unstuck, and other literary journals, and she has taught at UCLA Extension, the Art Institute of California, Los Angeles, and UC Irvine.

  • Gracie DeVito’s work challenges codified modes of art making and production; the output of the work shifts fluidly from painting, to sculpture, to found objects, to performance. Characters and motifs, manifested by DeVito herself or by the characters she creates, rotate through the 2D and 3D spaces of her pieces.

USB Flash Drives (U3 Smart)
Question: Whenever I insert my USB Flash Drive into a Mac, it launches Toast.

Answer - Your flash Drive is U3 Smart.

Question:  What is U3

Answer - this software allows you to carry your files and your software on a secure USB drive.  U3 technology is only supported by Windows XP & Windows 2000.

Question:  Can I format my USB Flash Drive to remove the U3 feature on a PC?

Answer - No. When you insert it on a PC (Windows) it creates two new drives. A removable media partition as well as what appears to windows to be a CD drive. It is CDFS formatted and write-protected so windows won't let you write over it or format it. And it does not give you an option to repartition it in Disk Management either.

Question:  Can I format my USB Flash Drive to remove the U3 feature using a Mac?

Answer - No, Disk Utility can not remove U3

Question:  What do I need to know before uninstalling U3 Launchpad from my Smart Drive.

Question:  How do I delete U3 software from my USB memory Key (ex. Sandisk Cruzer Micro, Kingston Technology U3 Data Traveler, Verbatim Store 'n' Go, Intuix Smart Drive M300, Memorex MiniDrive )?

Answer - You need a U3 LAUNCHPAD UNINSTALLER.  U3 uninstaller is a software that removes the U3 Launchpad and re-configures the drive to be a single mass storage USB drive. It is available only for and must be run on Windows XP or Windows 2000 machines. Here is a link to dowload the programs. (Before running the program make sure your Flash Drive is inserted)
