Wave Int'l invites you to open Issue 01 with us at Co-Prosperity Sphere on
Friday, October 15.

Brian and I initiated Wave Int'l as a platform for our respected peers to meet and
collaborate on some ideas we've been contemplating in our readings, writings,
works and conversations. We hope for our global community to convene in the
form of quarterly networks, or Issues, in various geographic locations
throughout time. Each issue culminates in an exhibition and publication. We
welcome you to meet us at our first network by attending the Issue 01 opening
and picking up a copy of it or downloading the PDF at http://waveintl.info/.

For Issue 01, we invited Ida Lehtonen (Gothenburg, Sweden) and Micah Schippa
(Chicago, IL) to talk about iconography in the "office". The issue will feature new
works from Lehtonen and Schippa, and a contribution from Bret Schneider (New
York, NY).

Please visit http://waveintl.info/ for more information.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Scott Cowan / 17 Pictures

Scott Cowan, in his first photography exhibition, has selected 17 images from a body of work that will eventually contain 10,000 photos. The chosen work illustrates humor, raw tension, claustrophobia, and strangely grotesque excess within and without what is typically thought of as 'common' cultural objects. They are clearly fixed ‘facts’ of the real world but impartially recorded within the order and clarity imposed or allowed by the camera. While less focus is placed on direct narrative, the starting point is an egalitarian or evenhanded place where no one object contained within the picture has direct precedence over the other. The emphasis is on shape, color, form, symbol, texture and fragments of space. With this in mind these images re-think about what is considered successful, beautiful, or visually important. It is as if the aesthetic qualities are not a separate issue to resolve apart from the objects themselves.
