Open engagement Hey Tim!

In case you hadn’t heard about this opportunity, Open Engagement has an open call for proposals that ends soon (Oct 31). The theme is “justice,” and I thought you might have something cool to submit:

 

Hope to meet up soon!

Oct 2 8, 2016 

I think I’m almost ready to leave this residency. Well, I don’t know if “ready” is the right word. I don’t know if I could ever be “ready” to leave such idyllic beauty and a schedule with basically no constraints outside of the ones I set for myself (and the ones set for me by my work in far away — or at least seemingly far away — Seattle), but at least I’m preparing to leave. I’m generating a lot of ideas that I can’t complete here, either because the time remaining is so limited, or because the environment isn’t right.

I need to be back in my lived environent. The urban environment fraught with tension, chaotic, congested, lives overlapping and intertwined.

This tension is such a real part of my lived experience — really anyone’s lived experience, but really mine as a woc, and I think places like Port Townsend are able to mask that tension underneath their gorgeous vistas and sprawling hilly lawns and odl white buildings with emerald green shutters. It’s harder to hide that tension in a place like Seattle. Even harder in other cities, I’m sure, but still.

This palce was a break from so much of that tension. A place to reboot, recalibrate, rest, and recover. And now it’s time to get back and get started. On the work that is so much a reaction to tension. To invisibility. To ljsdklgads whatever the fuck it is that my life is.

I don’t know. I’m eager to get started. To settle into our new place, unpack my shit, and hunker down. Get to know my new neighborhood, as much as I dislike it already. Go to openings and hug friends and eat really good Thai food and move move move move move move move forward

Your boss sounds awesome.

I did bomb. But whatever. I’m over it now. And you’re right. THat is a really dumb sculpture.h I also hate it. 

I’m cold and hungry but we are doing studio visits with the jurors for the reside . The opposite of blanket and food therapy. How are you? They don’t deserve me if they ever thought that sculpture was a good idea.

What. Ever. Do I need to move to the east coast to progress as an artist, you think? Sometimes I think Seattle doesn’t challenge yeah i amtotallylet me know when you want to todo do thatsat

Studio visit 1: Matthew Offenbacher 

Code switching in art and visual language

Is it possible to speak to more than one audience at once, and how do you do that?

Address audience (parents), and low brow high brow audience (white contemporary art world)

Falling back to what you know

Art practice isn’t linera, but can be more circular or even like a spiral

Do you have to go back and fall back onto the things that you know and do very well and instictiually first

Then use that as fodder to explore what you do not kow

Finely crafted objects

Is it being used as something to fall back on? At least it’s well-made. At least it took a long time

But how can an idea or something simpler also be considered “finely crafted” even if it’s just the concept

Can ideas be finely crafted? Of course they can

Scaffolding sculpture at SOIL

Inverse relationship between rigid and soft materials

Generally strong materials hodl up softer materials

In this sculpture, the string is holding up the wood — inverse relationhip

The sculpture is adaptable and flexible — metaphor

Hey!

I totally understand — I just figured I would pass it along just in case. And now you know for next year! 

Re: hanging out — I am free next Sunday after 1ish. I would love to just come over and hang if that’s easier for you.st 

Or we can go for a walk or really whatever.

I’m really glad you’ve found a good space in CAM. I’m not really interested in the space. I don’t want to share a space/generally get uneasy in those situations and am afraid of taking up too much space/don’t want to be surrounded by white folks when I’m working, but it’s good to have in my back pocket in case of a desperate

Studio visit 2: Anne Couillard

Suffering

All the work is about suffering — is there an ability to transcend that?

Suffering is a part of all of us and at what point do you veer towards that universality and find themes large rht

Finding themes larger than yourrself and moving towards those

Longer research based projects? 

Project about german dancer that worked for nazi germany and jewish poetry

How do you move forward from that suffering and work towards something else?

Seattle

Soft playing field and not very ripe for pushing and challenging work

Is it better to go elsewhere and see?

Interstitual practices

Artists working at residency tend to make work that sits outisde of their art cannon

An interest (curated a show) on that topic and looked at those interstitual projects

 

Work about work

Artists are working all the time, so creating work about how to make that work

Self-surveillance, accountability, transparency

Starting a simple withact (ex keylogger) and the consequences are unknowable — social practice related?

Studio visit 3: Ellen

Three questions you are asking yourself

How to incorporate color

How to introduce industry/work faster/remove your hand

What does this all mean?

Color

Right now, working with color as a byproduct to the process

How to intentionally bring very color into the practice?

Scanned pieces in different locations/seasons/times

That becomes your color palette

Deriving a color palette out of a laborious process as an extension of your art practice

How to move forward

Accumulation

Accumulation

Accumulation of small labrious gestures and wehre does that lead

Who is doing that kind of work already?

How do you make it personal to you?

You cannot compete with Ann Hamilton

It feels lilke Ann hamilton’s work —more about being in the moment, refined

Not like Nick Cave’s work, which is accumulation to another purpose

What is it truly?

Moving forward

How do you make it unique and personal to you to drive you forward?

Start looking at artists who are doing the same gestures

Accumulation, identity politics, slow work, etc.

See ways in which their practice is similar/different tofrom yours and move forward

How can you extend your practice? How are you not comfortable extending your practice?

Toom Friedman: Similar gesutre but copletely different aesthetic/material/etc — how does that feel? 

Get to the root of the gesture and the meaning

Extending practice through change in scale — same gestures but with larger materials? 

Black and white feels like art material language — nothing wrong with it, but is there intentionality?

situation, so thank you.

Ugh that artcondo situation sounds pretty awesome, but like you, I get really nervous thinking about committing to a longterm situation. Especially in Seattle. I love this place, but man, I don’t know if I wanna be here for very long. Sunday evening works for me!

Thank you!

Thank you. Planning on going later this year. 

 

Do your parents own their place? Does your grandmother own hers?

moonlight movie

 

SPoCS: Moonlight SIF 4 45 I chose November 6th’s 4:45 showing because I thought Sunday late afternoon might work for the most people, but let me know if people prefer different times. 

Here is the link to the showing times: days 

SPoCS (and friends!) let’s roll through and see Moonlight together. Let’s give our money to meaningful movies about the Black experience, especially as it pertains to the Let’s show our suppoNot only will we be supporting the telling and showing of our stories, but we will also have a good ass time. 

Maybe drinks after? 

“Whhhat?? On a Sunday evening??!”

I know. I’m crazy. viewing

Wow. It seems like your family has a lot of equity/you have a lot of backups and support. That’s pretty lucky. I’m sure things will work out for you. t seems like things will work out either through keeping one of the houses/getting money from sales/etc! WIsh you the best!

Smart choice! :)

The jpg file is for your reference.

The pdf is for the company.

Hopefully that works!

Also, I should have been clear from the beginning, so my apologies if I wasn’t: No one should be manipulating this work except for me. If you want to crop it for merch or whatever, that’s fine, but it should not be redesigned or reconfigured in any way without my consent. Ultimately, it is out in the world as my creation, and I want to keep my own standard on it.

Example: If I asked you to write and record a song for me and then I had a dude to splice it into a new shorter song for something else I needed. Like, you don’t know that dude or his skills or whatever, and ultimately people will think it’s your work, so that would be super iffy.

Hope that makes sense!

Thanks.
