The eight artists included in Open Sessions 2 ( Joey Fauerso, Tatiana Istomina, Patte Loper, Matt Neff, Mona Sharma, Adam Shecter, Naho Taruishi, and Arturs Virtmanis) were invited by Matt Neff and Adam Schecter to create poster images they then produced and then mailed to individuals chosen by visitors to the exhibition.

Camnitzer Text Poster

Continuing my engagement with both ethics and the exhibition history of the Drawing Center, I chose to hand write this text by Luis Camnitzer as my poster design.

During the summer of 2013, I participated in two residencies: the Millay Colony and the Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts, both lasting for approximately one month, both situated in remote wooded areas in upstate New York.

Adjusting to each new place, I took advantage of the impressions and experiences of the new situation, including the studio, the estates, the surrounding landscape, and the materials at hand (sticks, cardboard, discarded plastic) to construct site-related installations that also included time-based and performative aspects.

In Austerlitz, NY, the location of the Millay Colony and Edna St Vincent Millay's Steepletop Estate, the forested environment was mountainous and felt remote, however the existence of human responses to the topography were almost always evident, usually in relationship to the mountain streams running through the region. Responding in my studio, paint collection platforms were designed to capture paint directed down a series of conduits.

My Breakdown at the Millay Colony

The installation was broken down at the end of the residency and the material was transported to the studio at Constance Saltonstall Foundation for the Arts to begin the next installation.

At the Saltonstall estate outside of Ithaca, NY, the natural light both in my studio and in the surrounding woods traveled noticeably through space during the course of the day. The built form took advantage of this by catching the light and its visual effect would transform as the afternoon sun passed through the window.

Structure for Light Collection 1:30pm, August 21, 2013

Built to capture the sunlight coming in through the west-facing windows of my studio, the look of the piece would change significantly during the course of the day

Because the structure was built quickly, without a clearly formed plan, and using the idea of Surrealist Automatism in mind, the various components connected in unexpected ways.

An important part of the work is the tactility resultng from the variety of materials
