In conjunction with the regularly scheduled exhibits of featured artists, cycling every 1 to 2 months, Luce Projects are events, lectures and educational programing inviting open communication. The projects intend to temporarily suspend a participant's sense of comfort or familiarity to the Usual. With less reliance on opinion and judgement and more focus on observation, these shifts in perspective might provide fresh relationships to the Ordinary or Mundane.
Sound artists are invited to interract with current exhibits. They are asked not to physically touch or alter the exhibit (unless in collaboration with or with permission from the exhibiting artist).
Teleportation through Text. Each Textaport project provides a page or more of text describing how to construct something. The text is both informative and misleading so that the participant is able to see an ordinary thing as someone with demensia or amnesia or an alien might perceive it. If someone could write about what it's like in the in-between state of being teleported from one location to another it would likely be like Textaport.
THE COLORIST CHESS
We provided a 30x10 foot surface (in 18 panels), tools and paint, a grid on our website loosely imposed over the image of the substrate. The public, invited to submit instructions for one of our artists to pick up a tool, dip into a color and apply in the manner of their choice to the coordinates made available could come in or make suggestions by phone or email. Each participant was allowed one mark per submission. These paintings hope to pin point ego in the collaborative process so that it can be transformed. As multiple artists jump in to add their own marks, the creation and destruction by each mark made, amplify and cancel out to create a larger unifying structure that no single ego or personality has single handedly dictated.
