A friend of mine, Robert David Reedy, took the time to compile a video incorporating a sound interview for a short documentation of “Pow[d]er” at Tarrant County College-SE, Arlington.
Both voices are me speaking during the exhibit and after the exhibit about the notions behind the work. I really dig the slightly insane atmosphere he produced in the video.

Formed in 2007, the roving project RJP Nomadic Gallery has both exhibited at numerous venues and served as a venue for curated exhibitions. Unpacking Access is a performance investigating the possibility of decentralizing more traditional art distribution systems. Nomadic Gallery founders and artists Ryder Richards (Dallas, TX), Jonathan Whitfill (Lubbock, TX) and Piotr Chizinski (Ithaca, NY) use a rented 40’ Ryder moving truck to transport a ‘gallery kit’ which enables them to transform the vehicle into a functioning art venue. The work seeks to import open source media concepts and values to the notion of ‘the art exhibition’, modeling alternative forms of community access, engagement and collaborative ingenuity.
