HAM--Hold, All Movement (Showings)
A K Mimi Allin is the current artist-in-residence at Project: Space Available on Capitol Hill in Seattle (1 April--31 May 2010). HAM--Hold, All Movement is the title of Allin's project, for which she built a 8x11' hold (think of a ship's hold) within the P:SA studio & outfitted it with a cot, teapot, personal library & communications station (shortwave, marine VHF & HAM radios). She then earned her Technician's Class Amateur Radio License (in 2 weeks she'll be issued a call sign by the FCC!). An official Ham, Mimi is now residing full-time in the hold, listening to radios by night & turning that info into gestures by day. Radio gestures. At the end of her residency, she'll present this work in 3 public shows. O yes, and she's been eating ham (pink organic meat) everyday during her residency. Mmm.
