None of this is Real, Phase #2, Grand Central Art Center, Santa Ana, CA, 10/06/2018

October 28, 2018















For the second of phase of my evolving project, None of this is Real, participants are asked to bring an unwanted key to the Art Walk on Saturday November 3rd. I will then take the unwanted key, melt it in a furnace, and pour into a mold to create a new key. I will then give that new key back to the owner and the participant can use that key to open a door to a special room and experience a private installation. Recognizing that not everyone has an old key, I have broadened the definition of “keys” to include anything that allows a person to exit one space and enter another space regardless of whether or not it’s a “mental” space or a “physical” space. This expanded definition of keys can include but is not limited to: ideas, people, places, things, memories, or traditional bits of metal. I will have paper and pens available for people to create anonymous written descriptions of their unwanted keys to trade for one of my custom made molten-poured keys. Regardless of shape a participants key takes, I would like to encourage people to participate in an “exchange” and “transformation” in some capacity in order to give up something and let something go in order to gain a new perspective. The experience is free and open to participants of all ages and abilities.
