THURSDAY JULY 20, 2006 – SEATTLE, WASH. Slideluck started in Seattle as a small gathering with ten slides (real slides) and group discussion; later it became a five-minute themed presentation. Interest waned after its biggest advocate, Casey Kelbaugh, left for New York. There Kelbaugh used his networking skills, the power of the web, and the benefits of digital production to build an art-scene event in New York attended by hundreds. And I mean hundreds.
Slideluck is important to me not only because my slide projector was often used but because when Kelbaugh, Amanda Koster and I decided to change the format from ten slides to five minutes with a theme that first theme was ‘fear.’ That first presentation I made dealt with sexual violence and it was from that slideluck potshow that theFEAR Project originated.
Many thanks to Shannon Welles for her work pulling the event together and to Pravda Studios for donating the space. And, of course, Jed Dunkerly the ever-present, ever hilarious MC who, as an artist, lacks a web page. Probably because he’s devoting his time as a high school teacher to the enlightenment of Seattle’s youth. A noble deed.
