How Do You PS1?

How do you PS1? is an open house for the area’s most mysterious arts, music, production, and presentation venue. You can expect: open studios for our resident artists, inflatables from our public projects team, information dispersed about how the community can utilize our enigmatic structure (ANSWERS!) as well as our traditionally untraditional entertainment standards such as comedy improv from Paperback Rhino (a 20 minute teaser set at 8pm!), an audio/video installation from Jay Schleidt & Tom Buckholz, a closing reception for So Young Gupton’s hope•less installation, and some cardistry from JR Martins. Part fundraiser (we may ask for a buck or two), part information fair. All celebration.


Didn’t get a picture or recording during our installation.
\This shot was taken afterward, while JR was doing cardistry.

Benchmarks 2.0

This summer I was on a team of local artists responsible for transforming downtown benches into new public art.  This multi-month project involved loads of community collaboration with all sorts of Iowa City people young and old, artist and non-artist.  We took the various ideas presented to us and applied them in ways which emphasized individuality within a framework of cohesion. A news article about the project: During the process, we created an incredible standalone art workbook for generating new ideas.  Please use it for your own purposes, it can be viewed/downloaded HERE.

Allison Prideaux exhibited some of her artwork (of which I was a collaborator on a few pieces), id m theft able relished us with a breathtaking monologuous improvisational stupefying ode to his newly deceased dog, Phil Ochs did four guitar songs as Star City, and Talonescu did some short triangulated-amp pieces (that’s Point From Rooftops, Yobleart, and myself).  Here are the only pictures and recordings we were able to get before the batteries died……

Zine A Day

Every day in 2008 some friends and I constructed a zine.  Usually this entailed a booklet a few pages in length of collage art or some other sort of creation.  We started the project with the idea that being a leap year, 2008 had an extra day, an extra reason to express ourselves and explore new avenues of what is or what isn’t.  Take a stroll through the archives and check out what we were doing on your birthday a few years ago.


We had a few public exhibits at various locations: the University of Iowa’s Blank Honor’s Center; HOUSE HOUSE in Murfreesboro, TN; Home Cooked Art Show at the Glory Hole house in Iowa City; the back porch of Andolini’s Pizza place in Charleston, SC; Arts Iowa City Underground; White Rabbit, IC,IA.
