RTS is pleased to welcome Anna Sagström joining us from Berlin/Stockholm. Anna’s work centres around materiality, sound and tempo – often with (pop) cultural references. By bringing together moments of the present with memories of the past, she wishes to make apparent the constant fluctuations of our everyday lives, whether be it time, emotions or distance – to other people or what we perceive as history. The work often employs different music genres and thinks about sound in a both tactical and audiological way.

Anna plans to use the time at RTS to research the role of sound in contemporary biopolitics – how a sonic vocabulary of war and chaos is being used as a mechanism for organizing society, in everything from Nike football commercials to contemporary pop music. She’s also interested in researching how we can understand objects and materials through studies of vibration and patterns of movement and rest.

Please join Real Time & Space for this week’s RTS Talks with presentations by RTS resident Jay Atherton, and San Francisco based artist Aaron Finnis.

TUESDAY, September 30th, at 7 PM 

Aaron Finnis uses industrially produced self-assembly furniture and minimalist painted patterns to transform the abstract materials of data recording—such as binary code and computer magnetic tape—into tangible objects. By making the computer datathat permeates our contemporary existence visible, Finnis alters our perception of the digital processes constantly at work around us.
Jay Atherton’s projects explore the perceptual edges of the ordinary–the moments unnoticed. The quotidian sequence by which one exists within the constructed environment is made observable by the passage of time, more specifically, by the presence of change. Informed by the agencies of site, i.e. sunlight, temperature, wind, darkness, etc., the durational value of any change lends itself to a range of memorable outcomes that vary from the exquisite to the banal. The spaces Atherton creates, from residences to art installations, focus on the relationship between time and site in order to shape human experience.

On Tuesday, September 23rd, at 7 PM, current artist-in-residence Zachary Davis will be presenting with studio member Conrad Guevara.

Zachary Davis’ work comes out of an ongoing inquiry into the nature of sense, knowledge, and creaturehood, mixing formal and symbolic play with contemporary research into artificial intelligence. While in residence, Davis plans to use his time in the studio to experiment with new techniques for working with stone and epoxy resin, and to read about the western Enlightenment, the lineage of which structures much of what it is possible or rational to think today.

Conrad Guevara received an MFA from the San Francisco Art Institute in 2013 and a BA at the College of Charleston, in beautiful Charleston, SC in 2008. Conrad is one third of Bonanza, a collaborative group with Lana Williams and Lindsay Tully, with whom he has exhibited at n/a gallery, ATA Window Gallery and The Old Mint. Conrad is also half of “FrancoGuevara” with C. Franco Maldonado, with whom he has exhibited at The THING Quarterly, SOMArts and The Lab.

RTS Movie Night presents Smithereens

Hosted by Anastasia Pahules and Zoë Taleporos

Friday September 12th, 7pm

Smithereens (1982) is the debut feature of Susan Seidelman who later directed Desperately Seeking Susan (1985), She-Devil (1989), and other popular films. Throughout her career, Seidelman’s work has consistently explored female identity and feminine archetypes by focusing on lead characters that have unlikable qualities but remain endearing in some way. Smithereens marks the beginning of this trajectory by following the story of Wren, a young woman trying to make a name for herself in the creative scene of New York City in the early 1980s. Through a series of misguided relationships and actions, Wren’s journey portrays an abject quest for greatness and subsequent survival tactics seen particularly through a female lens.

RTS would like to welcome our August/September resident Kristine Eudey,  an artist living in Oakland, California. Most often, she uses photographic representations as the starting point for her work, exploring the tensions that exists within the elastic function of an image. Her work also takes the form of installation and text-based projects that act as meditations on the contingency of meaning in our representational language, and how the control of that language acts in producing relationships to the visible.

During her time at RTS, Eudey will work towards a book iteration of the ongoing project Register Star. Since 2012 Eudey has been photographing between the Midwest and the west coast, interested in the ways conquest and freedom are tied up in movement and our relationship to land and space. The work stems from a town in Illinois which was once the largest hardware manufacturing center in the United States. In contemporary times the industry has experienced a hollowing out, except for certain specialized and not-yet-elsewhere produced parts. The dematerialization of value-production that comes with the shift from manufacturing to service sits alongside a continual sprawl moving over the land. In this town a machine shop produces wares for military and private defense clients. This includes NASA, to whom they supplied the gear mechanisms for the rover Curiosity, currently exploring Mars. Starting from this shop, Eudey investigates the reality of human work alongside the mythology and spectacle to which these concrete efforts serve. At the core of her investigation is the human relationship to physical space and how photographic representation has expanded and irrevocably shifted our visual capacity within that relationship, producing a condition of abstracted and infinite views.

This work will be combined with an associated piece called The Tenuous Distance, to be release as a set of two books – one image based and the other text.

The last installment of a three part lecture series curated by June/July Resident Christian Nagler. Thursday, July 24th, 7pm @ RTS.

Among other things, Sarah will be speaking about

mundane in-person talk, which is the lovely kind of talk that only happens in person, the kind of talk that is more irrelevant because it is the secondary thing occurring, in addition to the body placement, or body-existing

and the things we were doing when we weren’t in prison including things that are the same as things people in prison are doing

and that you are a person and everyone is a mess without you now but you did what you could and the credit cards just exist and the birds did their thing

Christian is asking the audience to create some conditions of attention: to depart for the event in silence, and to arrive in silence. To make a frame for the speech.

RTS would like to welcome our July/August resident, Becky Alprin, an artist based in Oakland. Alprin’s process involves the languages of architectural model making and topographic mapping, both of which are simplified ways to depict complex forms of great scale. These reductive languages make vast things comprehensible and reveal patterns, lending the perspective of an archeologist in the distant future. Blended with geologic concepts deployed as metaphor, Alprin creates landscapes and cityscapes of indeterminate health set in ambiguous time.

During her residency at RTS, Alprin plans to continue work on the ongoing Cross Section Map series. For this series, Alprin has built lexicons of shapes that become the bits and fragments from which she assembles environments. These environments represent what she imagines would be seen if a swath of land was cut away to reveal the cross section of a landfill, a reclamation zone, or what it might look like if the world in front of our eyes was dismantled into its constituent parts. Pulled apart into fragments and then remade into new worlds, these landscapes examine the human condition through the fragility of the built environment, and through the lens of 2-dimensional design, in which positive and negative shapes may be interpreted in poetic terms.
