What is process?

PAM Artist Residency Fall 2016, Los Angeles, CA

Some thoughts:

What is process? Does process desire a beginning, middle and end? Or, is process a continuing stream of information, denoting endless micro-arrivals? When art is located through observation, phenomenology, is it no longer in-process? What if process continues through the lens of observation? The art is processed and reprocessed through individual lenses that make infinite decisions about its validity, value and meaning. Must there be a separation of objective processes between artist and observer? What if the two become spherical, running along a continuous path of feed-forward and feedback?

The inquiry for this residency is simple: to process. To ask the question of “what is process?”. There are no rules, no prefabricated arrivals. There is a time that denotes an invitation for public observation. The process is already in play.
