SUMMER RESIDENCY

One is a Crowd

a collaborative public art-making project
July 3 — September 30.
Artspace 201 E. Davie St. Raleigh, NC 27601



Every perception of color is an illusion.. ..we do not see colors as they really are. In our perception they alter one another.
- Josef Albers

In his book, The Interaction of Color, Josef Albers proposes that all color is relative; each color can only be seen according to those colors that surround it. One is a Crowd asks participants to consider how they perceive themselves and others in relation to the people around them. The project explores the shifting boundaries between the individual and their community, and the in-between spaces of social interaction.
For the month of July, I will be facilitating the development of One is a Crowd in the Upfront Gallery & Lobby of Artspace in Raleigh, NC. All are invited to participate at any point during the month. As a collaborator, you will create a self portrait/representation in my workroom at Artspace, which I will incorporate into a large on-site installation. Portraits must be created with me at Artspace using my materials and guidelines. All are welcome to participate - no art-making experience is necessary.  Read more
