ATTN: THE MASSES

FROM: RAW COORDINATOR

RE: ART

For the past 13 years, the Reed community has devoted a week to the creation, appreciation, and discovery of art in all its forms. Each year, students, professors, and professional artists inundate the campus with their work.[Our goal has been to take this year's celebration a step further, not merely increasing the number of exhibits and performances as we've done, but to pick a theme which challenges both artists and viewers to reconsider their relationship with the creative process.

For the fourteenth annual Reed Arts Week, I present the theme: MANUFACTURE. What is the difference between creating and manufacturing? Does the concept behind the production of art distinguish the final product? How much does our idea of art depend on the notion of an organic creative process? Can a manufactured product still be art? The answers to these questions, if indeed they even have answers, depend on what it is that the artist struggles to communicate through his or her work. I hope that by encouraging this year's RAW contributors to consider the idea of manufactured art, we will all look more closely at the "creative process", that journey from initial inspiration to a final product, and think about the basis of what it means to make art.

The most important part of RAW this year is the increasing visibility & versatility of the student body art. All of the student artists, as well as all the student volunteers, are the essence of RAW; being a part of art for art's sake. Thank you all for your dedication.

Siiri R. Sampson,

RAW 2003 Coordinator

"Photograms"

Patrick Nagatani

"Nuclear Enchantment"

Patrick Nagatani's, "Nuclear Enchantment" is a commentary on America's fascination with nuclear power. Nagatani uses ironic humor in his post-apocalyptic scenarios, emphasizing our inability to realistically grasp the tremendous threat of nuclear fallout. Each photograph is a collage, juxtaposing the recognizable against the distorted horrors of nuclear destruction. Nagatani has conducted extensive research into governmental atomic activity, including nuclear dumpsites, test centers, and accidents. He balances the grave political and social implications underlying his work with an appreciation for perseverance and regeneration, depicting otherworldly landscapes that seem enhanced by their nuclear distortions. An Associate Chair and Professor of Art at the University of New Mexico, and the recipient of many grants and awards, Nagatani has exhibited his photographs internationally.

2003 manufacture

Leigh Anne Langwell's award winning "Photograms" reflect the New Mexico artist's background in biological and medical imaging. Langwell creates her photograms in the darkroom without a camera or negative, laying her own latex sculptures on photographic paper and exposing it to light pulses. The resulting shadowy images appear to offer a microscopic peek into the inner workings of the human body. Langwell envisions the interstitial spaces between cells as a conceptual landscape, where the abstract and literal meet. The organic quality and dark, oceanic spaces of Langwell's photograms intermingle notions of artistic and scientific creativity. Langwell has worked as a college lecturer, graphic artist, and a technical writer, and has been exhibiting her photography nationally since 1993. She has been recognized with many awards, including the James D. Phelan Award, a Wilard Van Dyke Memorial Grant, and a Francis Elkins fellowship at the University of New Mexico.

On display in

Hauser Library,

Periodical Read-

ing Room:

Wednesday-Sunday

This collection of work demonstrates why the

Pacific Northwest is known as the glass Mecca of the West. Glass art

encompasses a wide range of subjects, from the classic Venetian goblets

to free form sculpture. Each handcrafted piece is a unique blend of

imagination, technique, and chemistry. Diane Ahrendt, proprietor of dragonfly studios, finds "a strange delight in smashing a vase or bowl that didn't turn out right, only to use it in the next piece with wonderful results." Toledo, a painter and glass blower, has found the light and color properties in glassblowing to be similar to painting, although the reflective and refractive properties in glass are real rather than implied. These pieces remind the viewer that the production of utilitarian objects can be an inspired, creative act.

(Some works are for sale, price list available through Student Activities)

Sculpture by:

a.

Installation

On display in Vollum Lounge: Wenesday-Sunday.

d Pete Beeman, a Portland based artist, applies his engineering skills to the design of interactive ki- netic sculptures. Based around ideas of motion, his sculptures come to life with a blend of clumsiness and grace. Beeman calls the functions of his objects "extravagant and useless, more often a play on utility than they are utile." For Beeman, engaging art is a form of communication. His creations confront our society's emphasis on efficiency, questioning the meaning of utility and functionality. Beeman holds a Master's Degree from Stanford University in Art and Mechanical Engineering, and has exhibited his sculptures nationally. His most recent large-scale installation, "Pod", can be seen (and touched) downtown at 10th Avenue and West Burnside Street.

The World Trade Organization

presents:

"Hunger in Third World Countries"

Lecture by Aldritch Heviside-Spillinger III

Vollum Lecture Hall. 4:00pm Thursday, Feb-

ruary 20, 2003

In developing nations, the concept of "manufactured" art is not an abstraction, but a very real part of the economy. Traditional crafts in the form of textiles, carvings, and other decorative objects may offer these countries a much-needed source of revenue with which to fuel expansion into modern production methods and technologies. Free trade is integral to the elimination of hunger in third world countries. As WTO Director-General Mike Moore has said, "At the moment, Least Developed Countries have less than 1 percent of world exports. I believe an effective way to prevent the further marginalization of Least Developed Countries from the world economy is through the launch of a new round of multilateral trade negotiations. A round offers the poorest and most disenfranchised among us the leverage to obtain wider access for their products, more funds for technical assistance and more flexibility in implementing their commitments under existing WTO rules."

Note from the RAW '03 staff: The WTO's positions on intellectual property, their support of the arts as witnessed by their sponsorship of an architectural design contest for their new European headquarters, and particularly their awareness of the artisan's role in third world economies, demonstrates that the WTO's presence on the roster of RAW events is the beginning of an important dialogue about the role of art as a commodity in the international market place.

Part spectacle, part poetry, The Typing Explosion, , is a trio of Seattle performers who crank out assembly line poetry while you wait. The typists, each carefully coiffed and dressed in 1950s style secretarial attire, communicate through bells and whistles, and the occasional "Dear Diane" memo. Each poet contributes a line or two to the custom crafted verse before passing it to the next woman, pausing only for designated Local 898 union breaks. Lighthearted and spontaneous, the trio hopes to take some of the dour rigidity out of poetry, while paying tribute to hard working, well-educated women secretaries, like their mothers, whose career options were limited because of the era in which they lived. The Typing Explosion has become a national phenomenon with a loyal Seattle fan base, which helped make The Typing Explosion's first theatre piece "Dear Diane" a success.

Coup

Since forming in 1990, The Coup's

sound has grown from the basic sample-and-loop

aesthetics of "Kill My Landlord" (1993) and "Genocide

& Juice" (1994) to increasingly complex arrangements, "incorporating live instruments, multi-layered background vocals, interludes and skits, turntable scratching, and, as always, slumpin' beats capable of rattling in the trunk and in your noggin at the same time". As the group's primary producer, arranger and songwriter, Boots Riley, has been responsible for the evolution of the Coup's sound. DJ Pam the Funkstress, a member of the group since 1997, collaborated on 1998's "Steal This Album", and The Coup's most recent album, the uptempo, even danceable, "Party Music".

With their commitment to anti-corporate activism, The Coup is a rap group both your booty and your brain can feel. "Political music, to be viable, has to have a movement to go along with it" says Boots, otherwise, "if you're wearing the clothes and memorizing the lyrics, but you go home and you don't have anything in the refrigerator, you're gonna say, 'This music doesn't have anything to do with the material world.' So people will latch on to other ideas that actually do affect them in the real world. That's why the movement that I would like to align myself with is a movement that is about bettering your standard of living and getting paid, but also about a better way of getting paid, about getting paid together, and about enacting real, lasting change."

So you've seen the exhibits, been to the lectures, and know all too well how your every thought, movement, and feeling are automated mechanisms, dictated by the industrial complex of 21st century life. Are you a cog? Just another gear in the machine? we say no!

Let the sights and sounds of the Masquerade Ball bring you back to your senses. Come spend the night celebrating RAW's climax. Give over to the organic beats, as lights and images pulse overhead. In the midst of a manufactured industrial wasteland, your groovin' body will remind you that you can live in a world of your own creation. Feel awed, feel inspired, feel human. Ain't life grand?
