In the Fall 2011 and Spring 2012, I took a creative writing seminar with poet Kenny Goldsmith and Whitney Lauder Curatorial Fellow, Jennifer Burris at the University of Pennsylvania. Inspired by graphic designer Stefan Sagmeister, we focused on one truism to create a body of work;
concrete, poetic, performance, graphic, relational and artistic. My truism: Egos are Frail.
Our class sessions, projects, and research culminated into a book; an intimate two-part interview with Stefan Sagmeister released under the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia. The book is closely in sync with the Happy Show exhibit and also contains intros by Kenny and Jennifer, interview photos, our truism statements, and an original pataphysical index.
