I’ve contributed images to a new artist-initiated publication. It’s launching at an interdisciplinary event at P•P•O•W Gallery, a great space that represents some really awesome artists.
Amanda Curreri and Erik Scollon Presenting Color&Color #0
Color&Color is an artist-curated publication guided by the duality of two thematic colors per issue. The premier issue, Color&Color #0, features Orange & Blue with work by the following artists: Deric Carner, Amanda Curreri, Renee Gertler, Jason Hanasik, Sam Lopes, Celia Manley, Jeremy Chase Sanders, Erik Scollon, Skye Thorstenson, and Christine Wong Yap.
o.blaat (Keiko Uenishi), Sound Event
In Sound Event, the first word, “Sound” swings roughly between two of its many uses in “an experiment through the course of an event”: 1: (as noun,) the sensation produced by stimulation of the organs of hearing by vibrations transmitted through the air or other medium. 2: (as adjective,) following in a systematic pattern without any apparent defect in logic—as in sound reasoning. It is also an attempt to observe the certain swing/shift between a thing “signified” and “signifying” and perhaps the process of accumulation of desire.
Sal Randolph, Language Drawings
The artist will read from a series of new language “drawings” — texts made with a manual typewriter on long rolls of paper. As a kind of spontaneous “drawing practice” the words on these scrolls are free to follow one another according to an evolving set of principles including sound, shape, semantics, syntax, repetition, punning, play and association. These are intended to be texts without result, the residue of a practice that takes place unobserved: daily, meditative, noninstrumental.
