This month AFC is most specifically interested in their artists Tom Burtonwood and Holly Holmes, who will present a site specific installation titled PRODUCTplacement, at Open Studio. It's hard to imagine the installation living up to the pseudo Magic Eye sketch they created for the project, but the in-progress documentation on their site shows a promising start. Certainly, if 3-D glasses are eventually required to properly view the piece, it will top the original sketch.*
On an additional note, I think a nice companion piece to the JPEG above can be found at FunFoodsUSA.com, a site originally curated by Guthrie Lonergan for the purposes of artist Cory Arcangel and Michael Bell-Smith’s “Best of the Web” project in 2005. The website of course lacks the physicality (and admittedly simplistic social/political message) that Burtonwood and Holmes intend for their final piece, but I imagine if they were to build their work out of Internet crap this would be by far the best and most appropriate source material.
