CSPA Quarterly Issue 3: Spring 2010

Available at MagCloud

CSPA Quarterly published by the Center for Sustainable Practice in the Arts

In this issue, we’re working against the stereotypes of the form, and attempting to broaden its term. As always, we’re exploring our chosen theme across disciplines and were delighted to include sculpture, visual art, theater, public art, and media art in the following pages. Instead of asking for work based on waste materials, we asked for work built from objects that already exist.

Además se alienta un abordaje práctico e integral enfocado a la incubación de proyectos propios: esta será la marca de una formación de avanzada en el contexto actual latinoamericano.

Upcoming: Rooftop Films: Tiny Furniture, Biker Fox, The Man Next Door

BIKER FOX (Jeremy Lamberton | Tulsa | 90 min.)
Friday, June 11, 2010

NY Premiere! A documentary about Tulsa’s best-known bicycle-riding, raccoon-feeding, scrapyard-dealing, screaming, motivational philosopher of life. To call Frank DeLarzelere III (AKA Biker Fox) a local celebrity is misleading–he is more an agitator than he is a prized local son. As a proponent of bicycles as the primary means of transportation, he is fighting an uphill battle against a Southern community that loves its cars, worships horsepower, and doesn’t smile upon long haired, flamboyantly dressed eccentrics calling for lifestyle changes.

From the very first frames of Jeremy Lamberton’s Biker Fox, it is very clear that this will not be your typical documentary portrait of a local character. In them, DeLarzelere stands over a grill, flipping burgers and hot dogs, gazing into the camera as he enthusiastically discusses how delicious all this cooked meat is going to be when it is ready. But suddenly his mood changes and he emphatically throws all of the meat to the ground and berates us for even considering eating such unhealthy food. He used to be obese, he explains, but eating healthy and riding his bike transformed all of that, and he thinks we can change our lives, too, if only we follow his example.
