ELECTRIC SPACE GARDENERS is a speculative poem with 22 vivid risograph prints published by Jessica Bebenek at the Center for Expanded Poetics, Montreal, QC. As of 3/17 18 copies remain from an edition of 100. I am offering them directly on a sliding scale $30 – $60 and donating 10% of the proceeds of each book to Lunch On Me, a non-profit here in LA that redistributes organic food to feed the homeless population in skid row. Every $3 will feed someone in need a three-course meal. Paypal, Venmo, or Checks accepted please include $7 for shipping. Contact me on my website through the Connect form or find me on social media to snap up a copy while they last! There is also a handful of copies available at Skylight Books one of my favorite book shops here in Los Angeles!
Thrilled to be invited to publish my text ELECTRIC SPACE GARDENERS with the Center for Expanded Poetics CEP this November in Montreal Canada. I look forward to traveling there and seeing what will unfold with the risograph process! The center studies the connections between scientific and poetic approaches to structure, form, and fabrication, attending in particular to how biology, physics, chemistry, metrology, and materials science might inform the conceptual resources of poetics.
Gif comprised of ink drawings, etc made from translating the ESG text. I look forward to seeing how these will factor into the print component for the document.
Lately a portion of my studio time has included the creation of some speculative proposals for large-scale installations. Here imagined on a building in downtown Los Angeles is a proposition from a series I entitled The Frolics of the Fusionaries. Featured here as a mural the works in this series also lend themselves to the materials of mosaic and glass.
Hand cut, printed & collaged by yours truly in downtown Los Angeles. This print is an open edition and is available in a variety of color ways. Contact Gregory Lind Gallery for details.
