The Works 2009
Here is an interview with two artists: Fawn Krieger and Jesse Hayward, recorded during the construction of their respective installations at Time Based Arts Festival site for "The Works". For TBA '09, PICA (Portland Institute for Contemporary Arts) gained access to the defunct Washington High School. Using the old theater and two complete floors, artists set up a variety of installations in former classroom spaces. The artists interviewd here are only two of about a dozen different installations. Though TBA '09 events are over, the galleries are open at Washington High School through October. Visit PICA.ORG for more details.
Fawn Krieger is a New York based artist and was invited for residency to produce the installation interviewed in this piece. She calls it "National Park" and you can learn more about it and see photos at www.fawnkrieger.com.
Jesse Hayward is based in Portland and produces interactive installations that often speak to the playfulness of art and craft. You can also learn more about his work at www.jessehayward.com.
Also, notice an original short piece of Musique Concrete in between the interviews. I produced this on behalf of Fawn, who provided the audio samples.
