Gesamt

Metal Calligraphy by Kevin Pang

“Gesamt is the result of a system in which ideas are transmitted through a series of exchanges (think exquisite corpse) to achieve mutual elevation. It emphasizes process and product equally, stressing that there is no hierarchy between mediums, authorship, or outcome, but rather a synthesis of ideas that create a Gesamtkunstwerk, or a total work of art. […] Gesamt is a fascinating look at the practice of conceptual sharing, where the lines of authorship are obscured. In a similar way in which DJs remix music, Gesamt incites a process of call and response, in which both the makers and viewers are implicated into the work.” -Alyssa Brubaker, Visual Arts Curatorial Resident at Elastic Arts
