Getting to Yes: Material Art Fair
Scored by Leila Peacock, performed by Steve Kado
Adapted from an icon Angie Keefer designed for a semi-fictional private communications company, Getting To Yes consists of portions of the icon isolated and silkscreened in gold on 11″x15″ sheets. They are then paired together to create emoticons. Each print is unique (no duplicate images), and each pair is unique. They resemble geometric abstractions, though they are in fact an exploded logo that will (probably) never enter circulation. The works are sold in pairs, and the price changes daily to the most recent strike price of 1oz of gold.
The prints are accompanied by a script by Leila Peacock, which will be interpreted and performed by Steve Kado during the fair.
