Jam Score 2009 800Jam Score, giclee print, 60×40”, 2009

A graphic text piece representing the polyphony and eclecticism of the Public Fruit Jam.  Three registers interpolate the literal, the symbolic, and the associative, or more simply the instructional, the experiential, and the ephemeral.  This was intended to function both as a poem and a performance score that could be executed in a performance, as it was for Scores in 2009, curated by Robert Crouch and Ed Patuto for the Lawrimore Project in Seattle, WA.  The “score” is often executed with fruit jam on a white canvas, which is left to drip for the remainder of the exhibition.
