thelab(sf)'s small multiples show

i am participating in thelab(sf)'s 10th annual small multiples show (post-postcard).

the show is an "open-invitational exhibition" and given that thelab is a good non-profit arts space, lots of local art school folks and kids like me, trying to find our way into exhibiting art, participate (costs $10). thelab provides each participant with a 5"h.6"w.11"d box, which they fill. the work must be priced between $1 and $30 (split between thelab and theartist). all work in the box must have the same price. the post-postcard idea invites artists to make small works - originals, multiples, whatever - that fit into thebox and thepricerange. the show is an open marketplace with hundreds of these boxes.

this show is a natural fit for one of my favorite cameras, the polaroid spectra.

i submitted 14 individual polaroids, framed in the polaroid film cartridges (reuse), with tape and an eyescrew.
priced $15 each (half to me).

i also created 7 polaroid constructions/diptychs. i made frames out of cardboard (reuse), tape, and wire. i am very happy with the results.
priced $30 each (half to me).

i learned a few things along the way.

view the slideshow of my submission. or, the photo set.

this is a great show to checkout in person. handy fortothe giftgiving. there is veryverymuch work, a variety of good work (original and multiples), all priced $30 and less.
