"The Artist Process part 2" For those that are interested.
"The Artist Process" is a documentary in the lives of New York City artist. The purpose of creating these documentaries or such event is to educate those that are un aware and unfamiliar to the many artist that we have present in our life time, that are utilizing their talents for the betterment of today's youth.
Those that participated in the 2009 summer "T.A.P."that was held in 5 POINTZ, Queens, can tell you how of a great impact it was for them and others to unite together and perform to the public.
This time around, a new twist and idea came about to better help bring a closer view to how the artist see themselves and their art.
If you think that you can provide documentation of you being recorded by your personal recording devices ( Iphone, camera, watches, twit pics segments, or anything that captures you), then this art project is for you. The idea is to capture you as you see yourself and what you go through to get to THE PROVIDED DESTINATION, on the allotted time. Its going to be a full day event that will be held in the subway station. ( Location still searching).
Once you reach the DESIGNATED LOCATION, you will see a staff and other personal that will be on post, who will be already capturing by footage, your arrival. You, at this point will be grouped together by the means of your performance preference; such as Visual artist will group together, musical performance , and the dance performance.
1.Visual Artist: You will see several easels that has canvases already prepped and ready.
( Each canvas will have a posted note that will state a letter, out of the title : THE ARTIST PROCESS. Once again you will have to create something from a designated LETTER, but you will have to design it and create an image out of it.
**IMPORTANT** Once all the art is created, all of the canvas will be collected and placed in a gallery for showing. If your canvas is sold, 25 percent of the sales will go to our raising money for the editing of this new film, and the rest to you.
2. Musical: Mics will be ready with speakers and amps.
3.Dancers: I will get a large mat for you all.
Since its not an out door event, and in the subway system, I can provide some sort of snacks for you all, if you all can contribute $2.00 each per person, or buy food before or after your arrival. (and or $5.00 to help purchase canvas).If doing so, PLEASE DOCUMENT IT, it will all be so useful footage to tell a story of your activities as an artist, and as a human being. corny right, but its true.
I am shooting for the middle of June or early July, location I am still searching for a large enough of a space that can provide outlets and accommodate us all. HOYT SCHEMA HORN and Grand Central Station are two confirmed stations, but I am still searching for one that feels just right. If you want to help in any way, help find a suitable location, or donate money to help get canvases and art supplies for this film.
Thank you for your consideration, and I hope in working with you ( again)
