  • Sal Randolph: Matters of Attention, Spring 2013
    This course will move from a history of changing ideas about attention through current research and on into the implications for seeing and experiencing as modes of being Since works of art can be understood as reified requests for attention we will take them as important case studies in the investigation of what attending has meant and can mean Consideration will be given to the training and altering of attention

    it to the sender as a response These letters and the CDs are then exhibited with the permission of the participants Ang s video Be True to Your School 2010 originated from his residency in an old school building in Japan The artist invited former students of the elementary school to sing their school song in front of a camera They were first recorded on video individually many of them pausing and struggling to remember the lyrics Subsequently the participants were invited to sing the song as a group Ang filmed this chorus which he accompanied on a glockenspiel Kajsa Dahlberg s installation We notice no disturbances all are happy and friendly Postcards from Jerusalem 22 4 1911 24 1 1999 consists of some 600 postcards sent over a ninety year period from Jerusalem to Sweden The artist came across these cards while researching a group of Swedish Christian settlers in Palestine who began producing postcards for economic survival Even with their brief messages the postcard archive chronicles the changing times and historical conflicts that have marked Jerusalem over the decades Jeremiah Day s work No Words for You Springfield is a cross Atlantic exploration taking the form of 16 photographs and a performance documentation Attempting to trace the mass migration of Irish from the Blasket Islands to the US town of Springfield Massachusettes Day found that no discernable culture or tradition from Ireland has been preserved in the new world Instead he encountered the decay endemic to American post industrial cities Documentations of Springfield s urban ruin Day s photographs are inscribed with hand written text theyparalleling the ruins on the Blasket Islands which were evacuated in the 1950s Through the printed interview Springfield based historian Douglas Valentine the work assumes an almost archaeological dimension lyrically probing the depths of the American political psyche Julien Grossmann has worked extensively with early ethnographical recordings and music from across the globe For his work KOKIN SLENDRO Grossmann has created his own compositions based on different tonal systems throughout the world These were pressed onto records which double as miniature white islands suggesting very different types of landscapes The records play almost magically in succession with each island rotating around its own access to emit a series of highly diverse soundscapes Sven Johne s recent work has dealt with the island of Lampedusa and the paradoxes of the island as both a tourist destination and a site where innumerable refuges from Africa have landed or died just before reaching its shores The photographic series Traumhotels taken from the window of a humble hotel runs counter to idealized images of a Mediterranean paradise and suggests other more ominous realities Sal Randolph s Ambience Scores are transcriptions into language of the ordinarily unheard sounds of place They are alphabetically rendered sound compositions which can be read allowing place to be performed as voice Made on a portable manual typewriter the Ambience Scores on view have been created for the exhibition at specific public sites in New York which have in some way been politically contested The series of work as a whole follows Randolph s ongoing studio practice of Language Drawing and is a continuation of her interest in instructional art Truly a contemporary take on the sound postcard Tomáš Werner s Landscape Spectacle is a video work that was created during the artist s visit to the Grand Canyon A static shot of the majestic landscape is on view while in the background one hears a multitude voices from the masses of tourists coming and going from an apparent lookout site a concert of languages and exclamations lasting half an hour

open for students fellows during The Order of the Third Bird s July session at Mildred s Lane Interested persons should apply directly to Mildred s Lane with some alacrity Attention Labs with The Order of the Third Bird at Mildred s Lane July 9 15 2012 In an upcoming session at Mildred s Lane indiscreet associates of The Order of the Third Bird including D Graham Burnett Jeff Dolven and Sal Randolph will continue their investigations into experimental protocols of Practical Aesthesis and methods of Sustained Attention The Attention Lab is part guerrilla seminar and part meditative and kinetic practicum A discipline of the senses is pursued Temporary metempsychosis can occur but must not become permanent Topics for the session will include attention inattention surprise vigilance invisibility ritual representation presence and performance Is a choreography of the gaze possible Desirable Positions on these problems and others will be solicited submitted to collective scrutiny and tested against the available traditions and protocols of the Order UPDATE Associates of the Order will be joined for the week by Jac Mullen representing the editorial committee of ESTAR currently at work on newly uncovered historical documents related to the origins and activities of the Order as well as recent Mildred s Lane Fellows artists Rory Parks and Helen Miller The Order of the Third Bird There remains some confusion about the history and practices of the body known as The Order of the Third Bird but evidence points to its having been for some time a network of cell like groups that engage in ritualized forms of sustained attention to works of art The canons of secrecy around these activities their structure and purposes have traditionally been sufficiently restrictive as to leave some doubt as to whether any individual profession knowledge of the Order could in fact be genuinely associated therewith Helen Miller Artist in Residence Helen Miller explores human movement in the context of visual art and literature most recently pairing formalized sequences from dance and exercise with Beckett s Play and Sappho s Fragment 16 In support of Bird practice this week she will lead a series of site specific movement lessons drawing on the Feldenkrais Method of somatic education Mildred s Lane MILDRED S LANE is a rustic 96 acre site deep in the woods of rural northeastern Pennsylvania in the upper Delaware River Valley which borders New York state It is an ongoing collaboration between J Morgan Puett Mark Dion their son Grey Rabbit Puett and their friends and colleagues It is a home and an experiment in living Mildred s Lane attempts to coevolve a rigorous pedagogical strategy where a working living researching environment has been developed to foster engagement with every aspect of life The entire site has become a living museum or rather a new contemporary art complex ity It is now important to sidestep the debates around what is art or design architecture and fashion in order to activate these turbulent multiplicities It is more a question of praxis and action is it in an institution Storefront A gallery Deep in the woods At Home The Mildred s Lane site is a home where the Artist Practitioner the Student and the Institution have collapsed roles as they attempt to coevolve with an emergent strategy In conversations with friends and colleagues who teach and administer theory and practice in a variety of institutions the frustrations and limitations of conventional visual art programs and other pedagogies become apparent However there is a new excitement to explore alternatives to the way we research work live Mildred s Lane welcomes this new age of curiosity by activating connections that situate themselves at the nexus of science methods of living environmental activism transhistorical and critical artistic practices This unusual situation affords participants the ability to collaborate in the production of large scale socially charged research driven projects within a truly transdisciplinary environment Woven into the project work is a curriculum based on creatively and experimentally living and working together what we call workstyles These valuable collaborations are designed to become shared experiences that hope to have transformative and lifelong effects on how artists think of themselves as practitioners functioning in the world Mildred s Lane re spond re peat at Soapbox June 8 21 I ll have some new work Ambience Scores in re spond re peat curated by Audra Wolowiec at Soapbox Gallery 636 Dean Street Brooklyn June 8 21 There will be an opening Friday June 8 6 8pm and a closing party with performances June 20 6 8pm Ambience scores are transcriptions into language of the ordinarily unheard sounds of place From this alphabetically rendered sound composition places could then be performed as voice Think Kurt Schwitters Ursonate meets field recordings The originating moments they capture are ephemeral and unrepeatable transcription errors are inevitable but every attempt at the impossible task is made Banged out on a portable manual typewriter these Ambience Scores follow my ongoing studio practice of Language Drawing capturing words from the air often through radio listening and recent Combat Log performance which attempted to record the sounds and scores of a skee ball tournament in realtime They also carry forward a peculiar passion for instructional art re spond re peat curated by audra wolowiec june 8 21 2012 opening reception friday june 8 6 8pm with

manos mimi cabell naomi miller nina horisaki christens sal randolph seth weiner shanti grumbine sophie barbasch steve roden temporary services re spond re peat is a group exhibition that brings together artists and artist groups working across disciplines from performance sound and print media all of whom invite dialog through incorporating language in the form of text or speech using the idea of the soapbox as a starting point the artists ask the viewer to become an active participant by extending an invitation to respond or repeat to the works on view from take away works on paper audio and live performances to books and business cards these experimental actions will subtly diverge from the historic use of the soapbox as site for political address creating a more intimate platform for exchange the individual act of making will be shifted into the realm of the collective drawing us towards a poetic activism each piece will be documented and included in an independent publication at the end of the exhibition hours wednesday thursday 2 7pm saturday sunday 1 6pm and by appointment The Emancipation of Money at Open Engagement I ll be at Open Engagement in Portland Oregon May 18 21 with a new project The Emancipation of Money The Emancipation of Money is an experiment in circulating an alternative form of currency the Free Dollar among the participants of Open Engagement With no predetermined purpose or use the Free Dollar is designed to invite questions and provoke interactions Hand printed dollars will be infiltrated into the social community in a number of ways left for the taking on open plates given in spontaneous acts of admiration or amusement slipped into publications and papers or offered on request The Free Dollar intentionally has no specific use It has no denomination no conventional value It is not like the Ithaca Dollar the notes of the historic Cincinnati Time Store or the currency of the recent Time Bank meant to represent labor It is closer in spirt to children s play money but unlike video game gold or monopoly cash which transmute effort skill or luck into value the Free Dollar is untethered to any particular form of reward Free Dollars like any kind of money can be given stolen asked for or accumulated They are peculiar in that they most likely cannot be spent The Emancipation of Money asks What can happen to money in the absence of that familiar act of spending The Emancipation of Money is part of an ongoing series of Money Actions in which Randolph has been using the social dimensions of money as the basis of an interactional and interventionist art practice For the past several years she has given away real money in streets stores galleries cafés at talks at dinners over coffee sometimes anonymously sometimes in groups or person to person Because money is caged in rules simply acting outside these rules opens up new ranges of social action and interaction This project for Open Engagement extends Money Actions beyond the real into realms of play and invention It is hoped that a purposeless form of money might offer a means of critically engaging the purposes of real money If you re in Portland

Third Bird The public is encouraged to join with the experimenters in offering their generous attention to the works in question The Order of the Third Bird There remains some confusion about the history and practices of the body known as The Order of the Third Bird but evidence points to its having been for some time a network of cell like groups that engage in ritualized forms of sustained
