Initiated in 2016 by artists Jason Lazarus (Florida) and Sean Ward (New York), PDF-OBJECTS is a growing collection of embedded text-object sculptures.
Participating artists are asked to submit to organizers:
-a single PDF of a text that significantly informs their practice
-a description of a commonly available object (valued at $20 USD or less)
-instructions on how to sculpturally embed the PDF and object together
PDF-OBJECTS is an invitation into the artist’s thinking and practice–an embodied library, a sculptural field–each object a footnote to the text, or vice versa. The design of the project encourages new moments of scholarship, pedagogy, and intimacy between artist and audience. Participating artists are able to update their PDF-OBJECTS at any time in order to reflect their current research and practice.
Two screenings of video work this month:

I’m teaching my first undergraduate studio class this fall at La Esmeralda, where we’ll develop props and costumes for individual & collaborative performance and video projects. The focus is to develop contemporary art projects, synthesizing collective criticism with studio production.

Because the Night is a site-specific installation dancing between dimensions. Mirrors & fabrics, illumination & performance create a whirlwind for the visitor, who finds herself somewhere at the border of a supersaturated, object-oriented cacophony and a nostalgic, nighttime fantasy.
Because the Night centers on the artist’s personal polemic relationship with the night. The piece offers a surreal, never-ending nightlife, thereby acting as the antithesis of allegedly clear & logical daytime. Object, action and decór permeate one another, creating an open-ended absorption of the visitor into this invented parallel reality. Because the Night manipulates the relationship of spectacle & spectator through reflectivity and participation.
Because the Night is part of Cabaret Kabuki, which looks to bring various iterations of nighttime dérive into the space. Within this framework, a cycle of performance activates the installation in a plurality of unexpected ways.
