Eurythmy is a social performance inspired by nature’s energy and rhythmical order and is inviting an active public to reflect on the multiple levels of interconnectedness of individuals and networks. The project consists of the collaborative construction of an ephemeral flexible architecture using fiber sculptures in relation to an environmental sound system speaking for interrelationship between society and environment, formation and transformation, while celebrating diversity.
The Walk Through opens the social performance-concert and invite a public to navigate individually around an installation of handcrafted strings made from recycled materials during a series of workshops with communities from both Portland and San Francisco as part of the Glean 2017 residency program (http://www.gleanpdx.org).
Eurythmy#2 is a collaboration with the public and electroacoustic quartet: Haco (http://www.hacohaco.net), Tania Chen (http://taniachen.com/), Wobbly (http://www.detritus.net/wobbly/), Dereck Philips and visual artist Latifa Medjdoub (http://latifamedjdoub.com) at the Museum of Performance and Design, San Francisco, May 25th, 201.
Fantastic moment together with a group of engaging students and teachers yesterday at the Centennial Park School in Portland for the Strings Workshops. Our exploration together using recycled items from the Glean project was largely playful and meditative and allowed a set of sculptural strings to be conceived as a core structure from which we will build upon during the upcoming workshops.
Incredibly, we received 87 applications for the 2017 program! For comparison, the average for the last 6 was 53.
Our jury panel will be meeting Feb 9th to select 8 finalists. These artists will then be interviewed on the 13th to determine the final 5 participants. After attending an intensive orientation and safety training on the 24th, the artists will be free to begin gleaning at the transfer station. Then the real fun begins!
GLEAN is accepting applications for 2017 from artists residing in Multnomah, Washington and Clackamas counties.
New this year. We are dedicating one residency position for a student currently enrolled in an art program at a local college or university. Student applications will be considered separately from other artist applications.
GLEAN seeks to hear from artists with a broad range of experiences and cultural perspectives from the diverse communities in the Portland area.
GLEAN is a juried art program that seeks to inspire people to think about their consumption habits, the waste they generate, and the resources they throw away by tapping into the creativity of artists from the Portland metro region.
Five GLEAN artists will be given access to the Metro Central transfer station (“the dump”) for five months to glean materials to make art. The program culminates in a formal exhibition in August. Artists will be paid a $2,000 stipend and receive 80% commission from the sale of their art at the exhibition.
GLEAN is a partnership between Recology, an employee-owned integrated resource recovery and recycling company; Metro, the regional government that manages the Portland area’s garbage and recycling system; and crackedpots, an environmental arts non-profit.
