Claire Jeanine Satin on Sunday
The opening of Pentinmento went off without a hitch. Beautiful books. Attentive people. Claire spoke here and at Minnesota Center for Book Arts. Key to her work as an artist is the influence of John Cage who she met while teaching in Florida. In the choices she makes, she tries to employ Cagean decision making, removing the ego and the intuition as much as possible from the equation. She feels that chance operations and indeterminancy are best expresses for her in the use of transparency, causing all things to be seen, all things to interpenetrate at any moment. This makes for a non-linear expereience of content.
Stay tuned. More pictures will follow!
