Thursday May 15 | 8:30pm: Jeremiah Jenkins: The Split 
As an investigation of the global art market Jeremiah Jenkins will explore issues of supply and demand by splitting logs of Californian Redwood, pyrographically signing and numbering the freshly cut pieces of wood to designate them as art objects.  The finished pieces of art will then be displayed and sold at the Ever Gold Gallery booth for $20 each. Collectors can then take their piece(s) home and display them, or burn them, and the value of the works will rise or decrease accordingly. Each collector will be notified at the conclusion of the fair how many works have been sold, with advice on how many pieces to burn so they can successfully create an economic bubble around this series.

Presented by Adobe Typekit + SFAQ
Rafaël Rozendaal is a visual artist who uses the Internet as his canvas. His artistic practice consists of websites, installations, lenticulars, writings and lectures. His work researches the screen as a pictorial space, reverse engineering reality into condensed bits, in a space somewhere between animated cartoons and paintings. His installations involve moving light and reflections, taking online works and transforming them into spatial experiences.  “I will talk about my work, how I make it, why I make it, and how it mutates to different media.”
