We are happy to announce
SARAH BELKNAP AND JOSEPH BELKNAP
as the recipients of our
Monthly Gift(s) for both February and March!
Sarah and Joseph are a Chicago-based,
collaborative, dynamic duo of artists,
educators and citizen scientists.
Through an intensely dedicated,
highly ambitious and refreshingly inquisitive art practice,
Sarah and Joseph have been creating together since 2008.
Propelled by an energy of curiosity
concerning our time and place in the cosmos,
they travel freely between sculpture,
photography, video and performance,
producing work that invites us all
to share in their sense of wonder and excitement.
For the past two months,
we've responded to Sarah and Joseph's
exciting experiments with one of our own:
We call it
THE SOLAR BEHOLDER
Sarah and Joseph write:
We want to record Sun spots.
We want to draw them; record our angles, conditions and thoughts.
This book will travel a lot and needs to be durable.
We like intense color. We like graph paper. We love the Sun.
