Photos: "From The Inside, The Forest Is Invisible" from Goldmine Shithouse

Juxtapoz // Wednesday, 18 Feb 2009

Goldmine Shithouse (GMSH) is an artist collaborative that was started by artists David Hochbaum, Travis Lindquist and Colin Burns in early 2003, who began meeting weekly to cultivate insipration.

It’s now 2009 and it has been a while since the GMSH have been in LA all together to do a show, but this month they all converge again for a two-week residency at the Nomad project space in Frog Town.

The show is titled From The Inside, The Forest Is Invisible and is unique in that during the process of creation and preparation for the show, spectators are allowed and encouraged to stop by, thus influencing the eventual outcome of art. Viewers become invested in the final product, which often mimics the fluid process of transformation from chaos and disorder to harmony and thoughtfulness.

GMSH explains, “As always, we encourage people to please come to visit us during the residency, as the process is really the meat of the show. Also we have a silkscreen party halfway through the residency, as it has become a tradition to do so.” These guys definitely know how to make great art and throw a great party, so see more photos that GMSH shot our way below:
