My Interview With Artists Delta Camshaft CollectiveJanuary 1, 2008
Rorschach Notions, a collaborative installation featuring the work of a group of artists going by the name of the Delta Camshaft Collective, was part of a larger event entitled Scattered Ephemera,which culminated in city-wide exhibitions and a performance by NPR commentator author, Andrei Codrescu.
Rorschach Notions took its name from late 19th Century Swiss psychologist Hermann Rorschach who pioneered the usage of inkblot tests in modern psychological analysis. The exhibit consisted of a video screen flashing period photos of Tacoma while two ‘subjects’ interpreted the narrative. On the reverse side of the kiosk was an interactive paper installation of antique wall paper, artist drawings, and prints that implored the viewer to remove and explore, thus creating their own modern ephemera.
