ACP Public Art – 2007

Public Placemats (ATL) – Jason Fulford
Atlanta native Jason Fulford has selected images from 40 photographers to be included in Paper Placemats (ATL). These placemats will be used at participating restaurants during lunch in October. This concept engages audiences at random and imposes an unexpected experience with art. Simultaneously, the encounter is very intimate and allows the unforeseen patron to connect on a level that challenges the traditional methods of artistic interaction. Life’s incongruities often are featured as focal point. Sadness can be found in humor. Rationality is created in the absurd.
Artists: Ethan Andrews, Roy Arden, Roger Ballen, Zander Blom, William Boling, Able Brown, Melissa Catanese, Reuben Cox, Paul Davis, Tim Davis, Jason Evans, Ted Fair, Harrell Fletcher, Lee Friedlander, Stephen Gill, Andrew Z.
