Public Space One’s art auction this year was Osmotic Radiance.
I contributed this glassy resin paint petal piece.. and instead of Mustard-In-Law’s annual tape box set, we made a special VHS tape.. and the auction was exhibited in Film Scene’s very long windowfront.. and Mustard-In-Law performed virtually for the closing reception!
Public Space One turned sixteen and held their annual art auction. This is Mustard-In-Law’s submission. 16 sprawling tracks (3.5 hours) on three clear tapes & an infinite LOOP tape, dedicated to your quest for small ‘a’ art. Compiled by Tyler for our favorite art spot, with original collage cover by Jay.
Once again, our beloved PublicSpaceOne called on the doers of do to raise funds with an art auction, and Mustard-In-Law dripped up to the plate with a six tape box set.
We provided a listening station and easy access to the contents.
The booklet was six feet long!
Although the physical release went to the highest bidder, you can download the entire 9-hours (!) of audio, along with high-quality beeps of the super-long booklets at this link here:Â mustard-in-law.bandcamp.com/album/dear-futureÂ Â Any money made from these downloads goes straight to PS1, to keep small a art alive in our town.
Listen & weep……………………………………………
Also, I sold this glistening painting of mine.
The winner now knows everything we know, may they live forever in mustard.
