PROXIMITY ISN’T A VERY GOOD REASON FOR CLOSENESS

WE NEED MORE AWESOME!

Seriously though. Y’all gotta step up. Me too. But you too, too.

1) CHUGHEROHN!– That needs doing.

2) Our friends and comrades from Deep Leap/co-collaborators here on GI are curating a really exciting show in July. It’s actual Laser Cave curating the show, which is a kind of DL parent group, and thus another half step removed…Anyways, it’s good. We should send them things. I am doing something with text and glow in the dark paint. The show is at Department of Safety in Anacortes, WA and will be part of the really awesome What the Heck Fest. It’s called ‘In the Light Cone’. From the description: “The concept for this exhibition draws from the basic pairs and associations of light/dark, day/night, laser/cave, source/shadow. The foundations of visual phenomena and visual culture resultingly are based upon the existence of light; its presence and absence dictate circadian rhythms and our innate notions of temporality; light is food, we love the sun. It is impossible to overstate light’s import. We hope to give the light/dark//laser/cave idea revitalized potency by showing artists who understand that this isn’t merely a dichotomy: it is an experiment in the movements of the sun and the shade of the trees as well as the human abilities of fire, flashlight, lcd, and laser.

The novelty and heat of the show is not so much in curating a host of objects created with light as their genesis, rather it is in our choice to allow two views of the show: one, during the day, in which natural and artificial light will commingle to create an atmosphere comfortable to the casual gallery-goer and the other at night, once those lights have been replaced by a natural darkness and a more focused, specific and piece-generated lighting scheme. Accordingly, art works should function one way during the day (light) and another at night (dark). We encourage, for example, sculptures that become tactile obstacles in darkness, ghosts that lurk in the shadows of paintings, light-art whose presence awakens and increases in the gloaming, and more and better ideas.”

Send proposals to inthelightcone@gmail.com before June 8.

    From your GI dashboard, go to links on the left side. Then when the links menu opens up under that same tab it should open up something that says ‘add new.’ You have to click on that, and then it lets you put in the web address and the title you want. Make sure you list it as a link that opens in a blank page, so people who use the listings keep GI open. Also make sure it’s public, and under the ‘places we like heading.’ I just think blog roll sounds dumb.
