We just launched the Kickstarter campaign for Gift Horse â€“ a project for the 01SJ Biennial co-commissionedÂ by the San Jose Museum of Art and ZERO1. We are seeking extra funding specifically to construct the sculpture from sustainable materials and also to teach several “build your own virus” workshops. Gift Horse isÂ celebration of the viral nature of art and ideas.
The 13-foot high Trojan Horse will be filled with paper viruses, built by the public. On September 18th, it will be part of the Green Prix â€“ a parade of “green” vehicles.Â Several costumed Greek warriors will push it through the streets of San Jose and into the museum. At 4pm on Sept. 18th, we will “gift” it to the museum.Â Check out the video and please consider a donation.
Gift Horse derived from No Matter (below), which was commissioned by New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.Â (turbulence.org) and with both projects, we are partnering with Electric Works for the specialized printing techniques.
