This photographic image of an independent, Aboriginal-owned gas station was printed onto black construction paper using a crude method involving exposing the paper to sunlight and allowing it to fade. It's part of Vancouver, B.C. artist Raymond Boisjoly's series Rez Gas (2012).
The series is sponsored by the foundation recently started by Yoko Ott and Shari Behnke—The New Foundation Seattle—and it's in conjunction with Fredericksen's class, which you can follow along with the readings linked to on the syllabus. For us art nerds, the lectures and the readings should basically be required. Jan Verwoert's "Living With Ghosts" goes with tonight's talk, along with a little piece of madness by Borges. Check it out.
