Communication Project Notes

Art objects produced in the studio are covertly installed in dedicated cultural spaces.  The installation is documented by taking photographs of the installation at the time of deployment.  Photographs are published showing the artifact in situ, but not information which could reveal the specific location.  The name of the institution or space is revealed.

If no witness is present during the act, a report of the installation is shared with trusted critics, artists or theorists.  The report includes confidential photographs revealing the specific location of the installation.

Once work is installed it becomes an artifact of the project.  It may remain in place or be removed by the institution and kept, sold or exhibited in collaboration with the artist.

The exchanges produced by the communication project have the same ephemeral quality as other conversations – and they may or may not be remembered or recorded beyond the original installation documentation and reporting.
