I Am Transreal [Augmentology.com]

Published on _Augmentology 1[L]0[L]1_ today, july 28th. I’m so glad to be back on Augmentology.com. I really love mez’s writing and thinking as well as the other authors there. Its a great site, so check out the other articles as well, after you read mine!

_I am Transreal_: A Reflection On/Of Becoming Dragon [Part 1]

I am transreal. Look at me. When you do, a million iridescent scales across my dragon hide flick, move and align to create a multiplicity of perceptions, transversal illusions and realities cutting through each other, intersecting, dancing. Look at me. You see a shimmering of my fantasies and yours, a convergence of your minute sensory events, your imaginary constructs and my desires. Look at me. The mythopoetic elements of your reality and mine come into contact, unwind and become a recombinant event of male and female and something else, something more, for just an instant. Perhaps after that initial instant, one of your myths takes over your perception and you decide that you understand, but before that, I instill confusion and doubt. I can see it on your face… read more at augmentology.com

More details on MFA Conversations 2 at I-5 Gallery in Los Angeles

Again, I’m so happy that Becoming Dragon is going to be part of this show. Here are the details. I hope to see you there!

MFA Conversations Part II
At I-5 Gallery
July 17th, 2009 7PM to 10PM
July 17 to September 11, 2009
Artist Talks: July 25 and August 22
2PM to 4PM

Conversation: (NOUN) 1. An informal spoken exchange of thoughts and feelings; a familiar talk.
2. Social intercourse; close association. 3. Rare. Close acquaintance, as with an
object of study.

I-5 Gallery is pleased to announce the second in the “MFA Conversations” series of shows being offered this summer through the fall of 2009. MFA Conversations Part II continues to explore the abundance of MFA programs in the Southern California area from San Diego to Santa Barbara. Despite their shared geography, these programs represent a range of diverse offerings, foci, students, and work. While such diversity yields richness, it can also have an isolating effect on students from these institutions, who do not have many opportunities to interact in the greater southern California arts community.

Curator Marla Koosed explains: “MFA Conversations Part II builds on the foundation established by Part Iʼs show and artist conversations and will offer another opportunity for dialogue among the artists and their works. It will also offer visitors to the gallery an exceptional opportunity to see an edited sample of some of the finest work being produced by Southern California MFA Graduates. While most MFA shows are up for a limited period of time; Part II will be up for 2 months. This allows time for the scheduled artist talks, for the participants to discuss their work, each othersʼ work, and to share those conversations with a wider audience, the public.” Artist talks are scheduled from 2PM to 4PM on Saturday, July 25th and Saturday, August 22nd.

On the heels of Part I, MFA Conversations Part II will show work from 7 schools; Art Center College of Design, UC Los Angeles, UC Santa Barbara, UC San Diego, UC Riverside, Otis and Calarts. This show is not a survey or comprehensive of all the graduates: Instead, studio visits for
all eligible candidates for this show were conducted, and participants were chosen from that pool. The intimate space of the I-5 Gallery allows for an exhibit like this to function and for the works to interact by the space they cohabit.

The MFA Conversations series will conclude with a third show, Professor Dialogues that will feature select works from faculty of the 15 schools and will take place Winter 2010. Stay tuned….
