Interchange: to put each of two things in the place of the other; to change places mutually; also: an exchange of ideas; mutual interaction.
Project RayOn 2017
Project RayOn 2017 is the second annual exhibit curated by Horatio Hung-Yan Law, and featured new and unfamiliar works by four long-time Portland artists. The work was show anonymously as an opportunity for the artists to produce work that was exploratory and represented their intense forays into milieu outside of their current artistic paths, under the guise of the alter ego/pseudonym of RayOn. Kristen Miller and Carson Legree were two of the participating artists.
About Project RayOn: “Rayon” is a fiber derived from naturally occurred cellulose that is repurposed/regenerated into a new material. Project RayOn, created by artist Horatio Hung-Yan Law, aims to provide opportunities for artists who are interested to explore other artistic possibilities and personas, expressing their creativity very differently than their current work or artistic identity may permit.
Project RayOn invites artists to consider the artistic road not taken, to break out, or simply follow a one-off exploration into unfamiliar ideas, mediums and territories. The anonymous nature of the project encourages artists to create work without the constrains or expectations that sometimes come with following a particular career path and developing a certain reputation. Asking the question “What would RayOn do” may open new doors to unexpected adventures.
