ACHF Arts Access
The artist will present a public exhibition of new work at a Twin Cities art space. The work will be documented for display on the artist’s website. The outcome will be an exhibition that shares the artist’s work with a public audience, and makes high quality documentation of the work available via the internet. 2: The artist will develop the resources and technical skills necessary to create a series of largescale prints. The artist will successfully produce a new body of largescale work using a hybrid of analog and digital processes.
Jonathan Kaiser created a public exhibition of new work in downtown Minneapolis. High quality photo and video documentation is now on the artist’s website. The quantitative outcome of this project is being evaluated by counting bodies of attendees at the opening reception, RSVP information on the Facebook invitation, and traffic analytics provided by the artist’s web host. 2: Jonathan Kaiser learned to use direct positive photo paper to create a series of large silver gelatin prints using enlarger, photogram, and pinhole techniques. The goal of this project was simply to produce artistic work using a certain set of tools (16mm film and photochemical darkroom printing). This outcome was certainly achieved; the tools were used by the artist to create an entire show of new work. Since these were methods about which the artist had limited knowledge, learning, research, and skill-building were implicitly a major part of the project.
