I was asked by artist Rachel Wolfson to speak at Lewis and Clark College’s inaugural Arts Week this Thursday, April 24th, at 7pm in Miller room 102. 0615 SW Palatine Hill Rd, Portland, OR 97219
After conversations with the artist I’ll be using the work of 3D render LaTurbo Avedon to illustrate some thoughts from my project Identify Yourself.
My piece Fuck Windchimes for the International Invitational Triennial of Contemporary Windchimes at Rocksbox Fine Art appeared on Oregon ArtsWatch.
“Randomness also seems to be a vital component in South’s piece A small, black plastic fan like one in a personal computer spins at a high rate of speed. The speed of the fan provides a “surface” of sorts and allows for a projection of various sequences containing three words: “Fuck Fucking Windchimes,” all in capital letters. Sometimes it reads “Fuck Windchimes,” sometimes “Fuck Wi” or other segments of text, and sometimes the words or parts of words flicker in and out. The whole phrase is displayed much less often than the other manifestations, and it was while waiting to photograph the complete phrase that I came to a full appreciation of the irregular “rhythm” of the piece and therefore the frustrated tone of the title. I suppose some people rely on the gratification a steady melody brings.”
Really great show of 60 awesome artists and friends, up until April 27th.
1pm, Saturday, March 22nd @ WhiteBox University of Oregon.
Portland2014 Curator Amanda Hunt will host a conversation with biennial artists Alex Mackin Dolan, Travis Fitzgerald, and Zachary Davis about the Networks video program on view at White Box, curated by the former members of Appendix Project Space. Portland-based artist Krystal South will join the discussion. Following the screening, the participants will discuss the curation of the video program and the individual artists’ contributions, touching on the necessity of communication, the nature of a network particular to this community of artists’, and the space of the global, online network itself. One video from the program is installed at the venue each week of the Biennial (through April 27), this is the first and only time the series will be seen in succession as a program, debuting them as a collective whole. The video series is comprised of work by Birch Cooper, Bea Fremderman, Zachary Davis, Jason Hirata, and Sara Ludy.
