central you were trusted and patient with a city that has not fulfilled old promises the way we should this project awhile great today i think unfortunately took over seven years to be able to produce and chinatown and our neighborhoods didn't feel the benefits of the tear down of the embarcadero the way other neighborhoods felt simultaneously i went through many years with the chinatown businesses and residents to suffer the impacts of that and so this is one of those rare moments what years after we get to celebrate a few of the things that many parts of waterfront celebrated many, many years ahead of us this is why wore in a hurry this is why we want more andreas
and by the way, fiona i didn't move in about mrs. flores he welcomed her i want to make sure i said that correctly in those election times you never know when the media is looking for in this borrowing year but i wanted to say i'm appreciative of all the elements of our community coming together i'm going to ask to you stay together on the sites like here the sites we respect opened in the tenderloin and ocean avenue and fourth street mission bay all those citing sites we need to accelerate this so it it if take 7 or 9 years in the case of the last place we gave keys to families i want the andreas and the others of the displaced
resident we're working harder and faster cd c has many more projects along with mercy housing and the housing home sharing housing authority we old promises to fulfill by the way you know this thorough the 25 slots in the allot 3 thoughtless people that were opining they couldn't get into the precious housing at the same time, we need to make sure we are preserving and preventing evictions have been long time residents of the character that's why we put serious money into whether it's dollars or lawyers or neighborhoods stabilization efforts we're going to do that while we try to figure out faster tracks for affordable housing to be built we need public and private
partners to do so i was glad we found more capacity to increase the housing bond to $300 million if there's more capacity we'll increase that even more not at expense of valuable other programs we have but in the way in which is honors long time promises not raising property tax we need that 2/3rd's votes we need sites whether in the mission or selma where we can control that land make sure that we build more rapidly wore doing so as we speak this is why in the $300 million we have identified serious elements to get at difficult areas of the city to increase the possibility of building more affordable housing that will end up as the finance experts get the pressure

programs. we are here to learn more from one of the resident artists. welcome to the show, deborah. tell us how this program began 20 years ago. >> the program began 20 years ago. our founder was an environmentalist and an activist and an artist in the 1970's. she started these street sweeping campaigns in the city. she started with kids. they had an exhibition at city hall. city officials heard about her efforts and they invited her to this facility. we thought it would coincide with our efforts to get folks to recycle it is a great educational tool. since then we have had 95 professional artists come through. >> how has the program changed over the years? how has the program -- what can the public has an artist engage
with? >> for the most part we worked with metal and wood, what you would expect from a program like ours. over the years, we tried to include artists and all types of mediums. conceptual artists, at installation, photographers, videographers. >> that has really expanded the program out. it is becoming so dynamic right now with your vision of interesting artists in gauging here. why would an artist when to come here? >> mainly, access to the materials. we also give them a lot of support. when they start, it is an empty studio. they go out to the public area and -- we call it the big store. they go out shopping take the materials that, and get to work. it is kind of like a reprieve so they can really focus on their body of work. >> when you are talking about
recology, do you have the only sculpture garden at the top? >> it is based on work that was done many years ago in new york. it is the only kind of structured, artist program. weit is beautiful. a lot of the plants you see were pulled out of the garbage, and we use our compost to transplant them. the pathway is lined with rubble from the earthquake from the freeways we tour about 5000 people a year to our facility, adults and children. we talk about recycling and conservation. they can meet the artists. >> fantastic. let's go meet some of your current artists. here we are with lauren. can you tell us how long have been here so far and what you're
working on? >> we started our residency on june 1, so we came into the studio then and spent most of the first couple weeks just digging around in the trash. i am continuing my body of work kind of making these hand- embroidered objects from our day-to-day life. >> can you describe some of the things you have been making here? this is amazing. >> i think i started a lot of my work about the qualities of light is in the weight. i have been thinking a lot about things floating through the air. it is also very windy down here. there is a piece of sheet music up there that i have embroidered third. there is a pamphlet about hearing dea -- nearing death. this is a dead rabbit. this is what i am working on now. this is a greeting card that i found, making it embroidered.
it is for a very special friend. >> while we were looking at this, i glanced down and this is amazing and it is on top of a book it is ridiculous and amazing. >> i am interested in the serendipity of these still life compositions. when he got to the garbage and to see the arrangement of objects that is completely spontaneous. it is probably one of the least thought of compositions. people are getting rid of this stuff. it holds no real value to them, because they're disposing of it. >> we're here in another recology studio with abel. what attracted you to apply for this special program? >> who would not want to come to the dump? but is the first question. for me being in a situation that you're not comfortable in has always been the best. >> what materials were you
immediately attracted to when you started and so what was available here? >> there are a lot of books. that is one of the thing that hits me the most. books are good for understanding, language, and art in general. also being a graphic designer going straight to the magazines and seeing all this printed material being discarded has also been part of my work. of course, always wood or any kind of plastic form or anything like that. >> job mr. some of the pieces you have made while you have been here. -- taught me through some of the pieces you have made while you have been here. >> the first thing that attracted me to this was the printed surface. it was actually a poster. it was a silk screen watercolor, about 8 feet long. in terms of the flatwork i work with a lot of cloddish. so being able to cut into it come at into it, removed parts it is part of the process of
negotiating the final form. >> how do you jump from the two dimensional work that you create to the three-dimensional? maybe going back from the 3f to 2d. >> everything is in the process of becoming. things are never said or settled. the sculptures are being made while i am doing the collages and vice versa. it becomes a part of something else. there's always this figuring out of where things belong or where they could parapets something else. at the end goal is to possibly see one of these collage plans be built out and create a structure that reflects back into the flat work. >> thank you so much for allowing "culturewire" to visit this amazing facility and to learn more about the artists in residence program. is there anything you like our viewers to know?
>> we have art exhibitions every four months, and a win by the public to come out. everybody is welcome to come out. we have food. sometimes we have gains and bands. it is great time. from june to september we accept applications from bay area artists. we encouraged artists from all mediums to apply. we want as many artists from the bay area out here so they can have the same experience. >> how many artists to do your host here? >> 6 artist a year and we receive about 108 applications. very competitive. >> but everyone should be encouraged to apply. thank you again for hosting us. >> thank you for including us in "culturewire." ♪
