SEYMOUR X JASMIN BLASCO
We are pleased to announce our collaboration with multidisciplinary artist Jasmin Blasco.
Inspired by his visit to the SEYMOUR+ space, Jasmin has created a site-specific project for our visitors to experience. The interactive module will be accessible at SEYMOUR+ until July 31st, 2016.
TRANSMISSION 5: Is an audio recording in the form of a guided meditation (RT 5m54s). It will be presented via headphones in the reception area of our space. This special proposition is in consonance with Jasmin’s project: The First Human Born In Space.
K_XYZ: The First Human Born In Space is a transmedia project primarily composed of short films written and directed by Jasmin Blasco, produced by Pico Studio in partnership with Creative Migration.
Flipping the pioneer narrative on it’s head, K_XYZ tells the story of the Native Astronaut through a series of fictional journal entries authored by a theoretical entity: The First Human Born In Space.
In a series of transmissions, The First Human Born in Space examines the long term effects of the condition of outer space on the human subject, mind and body. The orbital perspective of the native astronaut provides an alien vantage point on Earth from an environment of pure technological mediation.

ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jasmin Blasco is a multi-disciplinary artist who approaches time-based media as the site where sound, image, and language conspire to generate the fictional. Through a process of research, abstraction and fiction, his practice stages the individual in problematic narratives. He lives and works in Los Angeles.
Blasco holds a BFA in Music Technology from the California Institute of the Arts. He is a graduate of the Media Design Practices program at Art Center College of Design(MFA). His current research project examines the project of space exploration in its symbolic and cultural dimensions.
With the collaborative research platform The NOISE INDEX, he explores the topicality of informational hunger within a framework that runs counter to expected display strategies. The works Convergence and Horizon have been exhibited in Paris and New York at Cutlog, through Fragmental Museum.
He also hosts Speak My Language a monthly show of curated music on the internet radio collective Dublab. For more info: www.jasminblasco.com

Creative Migration is now fiscal sponsoring The Fainting Club as it continues to grow its global network.
Founded by artist Zoe Crosher, the "Fainting Club is an old boys’ club, for girls. It gathers over food and drinks when inspiration strikes, and aims to strike its members with inspiration. It celebrates and draws creative women from multiple disciplines—artists, writers, filmmakers, chefs, musicians—and welcomes any and all like-minded souls. Started in Los Angeles and based on the knowledge that strong, interesting and intelligent women are more powerful as a group, the club has begun to expand internationally. It now has chapters in New York, Mexico City, London and Hong Kong. All new members must be invited in person or, if distance prevents this, verbally, as connection and conversation are key to the club’s purpose. The only requirement for joining is a generous, collaborative spirit and a willingness to support other women." - Charlotte Druckman (New York Times, T Magazine article)
Creative Migration is now a proud member of Arts for LA, an organization that helps communities throughout Los Angeles County advocate for greater investment in the arts.
Come join us at LA CONVERGENCE on October 29, 2015 for Los Angeles County's annual convening of leaders in arts, culture, and arts education!
