“…there was nothing in the moon, in its geometrical dimensions,there was nothing in its chemistry, there was nothing in its electromagnetics, that in any way said it was going to attract the earth. There was nothing in the earth that said the same. It was not until you saw the interbehavior being manifested in free space that you realized there was something going on between”
– R. Buckminster Fuller (“Everything I know”, 1975) 

How do we begin?  By just living and learning to live with each other.  Creating and interacting in the same space.  Shitting down the same hole and eating from the same plates.  Through the remains and artifacts left here and there, from the dog hair and shifting air streams, from the creaks and cracks of ignored door screeches, from the stinky compost pile, we feel the space and dial in the presence of each other, of our neighbors, of the insects, of the night passers, and of the shouting headlines cancelled out by melting guitar tones and poetic chorus lines.   Only through the overlapping space between, only by the presence of one in the presence of others we come to understand ourselves and the attraction and retraction between.   Social Relations is a living process between artist inhabiters and co-inhabiters of untune.  For now we’ll remain anonymous.

Begun on August 1st  
Soft opening on September 1st, 7-11pm 
Closing party on the 22nd, 7-11pm

During the three weeks following the Social Relations opening, the living process between artist inhabiters and co-inhabiters of untune has continued to further melt, shape, form, and interact with the energies of the sun and moon, within the layers of atmosphere, and between the concrete pathway and carob tree – sometimes heavy, sometimes light reflective, sometimes bent out of shape, sometimes confused, sometimes aligned with nature’s rhythms, sometimes nature needs space, sometimes floating in delirium, sometimes desiring darkness, sometimes filled with tears and laughter, sometimes only anger, and sometimes we just loose ourselves for endless hours in the hypnotizing patterns left on the ceiling by broken mirrors – this is all of us learning to live with the challenges of the planet learning to live with all of us and the raging bull.    

Please join us this Friday September 22nd, 7-10pm, for the closing event of Social Relations featuring specially crafted first-time collaborations between Hardcore Tina & Syko Friend and Shekhan & yek koo

Hardcore Tina & Syko Friend are inspired by Diane Wakoski, Calamity Jane’s diaries and day to day reflections on how to be soft in a tough world.  

Shekhan & yek koo will be combining  beat driven interlocking harmonies of flute, violin, vocals, mandocaster, and electronics of SheKhan with the vocal and tap-infused spacial modifications of yek koo
