Tor Lukasik--Foss is an artist, writer, and performer interested in the ways in which art becomes a public language or a publicly shared experience. His visual work employs the idioms of conventional sign making, and is frequently designed for site-specific purposes. My performance work explores the notion of the public concert, and tries to deliberately tamper with the relationship between the performer, the stage, and the audience. Recently, he has further fused his art making and performance interests by designing and building performance sculptures. He hope’s that these artistic investigations will pull him into a deeper understanding of the differences between public and private, between fame and obscurity, between the personal and the universal.
 
“Unlikely Concerts” is the title of an ongoing series of short specific performances by Tiny Bill Cody, the pseudonym of visual artist and performer Tor Lukasik-Foss. These Performances are designed to unearth the hidden narrative potentials of the overlooked features of the public landscape. Tiny Bill Cody would like to organize, stage, and deliver songs to memorialize this atrium. He would love your help, your voice, your instrument, your words, your ideas and your assistance. Please contact Jane Edmundson for more details.
