Seeing Sky Station: Time as a Commodity

At Cream Co., we collect data.  While at an artists' residency at Yaddo 2 years ago, Marie began our discipline of documenting the color of the sky.  Since then, we are developing a series of painting based on the data we collect documenting the color of the sky.

I believe that the idea of including our audience in the practice of seeing happened a year ago when Olivia of High Concept Laboratories joined us for a studio visit; she thought she might enjoy watching the sky, as we do.

At the Arcade Gallery, we have captured 50 sky colors we have seen in numbered jars.  We ask our audience to donate, share or take time to see.  In addition to the numer description, we ask the audience to describe the color in writing.  We can't wait to see what struggles and poetry reveal in the attempt to describe the colors of the sky.
