artist dinner | affect module ii

 

AGORA - 2 - website

 

and we’re off to a great start so far … being courted with a delicious meal at agora collective’s cozy downstairs cafe is a dangerous thing to get used to, but its a wonderful way to get to know the creative minds that will be working closely together for the next ten weeks.

after touring the building and spending a relaxed evening talking with the organizers, artists, writers and facilitators in agora’s gorgeous garden, it’s clear that the people here have all come together to develop something striking and original in this space during these next few months. looking forward to getting started.

the noise strikes first – the rush of it

the personal and primitive ‘you’ seeking, ashamedly and humbly as you approach a metallic idol, another generous transformation:

overwhelming and meditative: the sound of the universe in a shower.

artist dinner | Swatch Art Peace Hotel

 

first artist’s dinner at the swatch art peace hotel was awesome! thanks for all of the artists’ who cooked and special thanks to all our friends that came to eat and enjoy the night.

nothing caught on fire and everyone left with their limbs intact [barely] – we are off to a good start so far.

fellow artist-in-residence, xepo w.s., managed to somehow take photos in between cooking his delicious pasta and organizing the music.
