3:30 am
there's like seven of these and cds. almost 6, seven within a half mile. but i think this is a good one and since it's dr, i figured that a lot of commissioners in favor of it. so my vote is not going to make too much difference but anyway we'll go from there >> mr. moore >> i have two questions. one is the size.. 4000 ft.2 seems very large but i'm not an expert in size. could somebody please speak to the sizes. we had last week a few weeks ago we had one which was 600 ft.2 and i was considered to be quite small. here were having on which is 4000. so my question is could somebody speak to the size? >> it is a large size for a dispenser. i would guess they range from somewhere 600-3000
3:31 am
feet but the larger size also allows for more services to be offered on site. that was part of the thinking behind having a safe place for people to go medicate. dr. be a recreational lounge or anything like that but aside room people can go in a transit oriented walking destination to there's no parking that. we discussed this in depth. we do not think those can be concerned a lot of people to be driving there so it is a big space. i mean it's a growing market and it allows them to offer more services to their patients in the and. >> question, to the director, 44 linear feet of this particular facility along market street is a lot of frontage, which doesn't have the transparency participation enhancing the public realm correlation between the use and the sidewalk and what are your comments on that? >> commissioner, there is i
3:32 am
know they can have totally transparent windows but there are-there are the actual windows there that will be maintained as i understand it and with fillmore something over the winter i can't remember the specifics. it is in the middle of o'clock it is not in the corner. that's an advantage could that is not ideal but i think that mr. tigger case given the nature of the intensity of this project market street, i don't think it's going to be a serious detriment to the block of the street >> the only thing i observed and more conversational, the north side of market street that area is far less animated than the south side. the south side has the stores and basically a lot of fun things going on in addition to the fact that it has some rather than the north side is in the dark and that for the overlay of i assume you have a security
3:33 am
is a basic requirement to maintain it from the dollar store. there's something somewhat amiss to help intimate that. the question is has the department had a discussion what could be done i cannot come up with anything in the moment, to give this some slightly late appearance. the second question i would like to ask in my mind was jog a little bit by commissioner-standing in front of us this evening quite a few years ago commissioner--was strongly opposed to an and city. we ultimately approved on mission street and one of the comments she made representing nonprofit organizations is really helping the very disadvantage. she said, don't put in and city together with with or near sro. those were very common. you may
3:34 am
remember that mr.-because i think you are part of that our application kit that's what sticks in my mind that she consider that to be not a very complementary adjacency. has staff talked about it? have you have and you want to address that stewart have you had that discussion? >> in terms of code location with sro's >> that is correct >> that's not a standard the planning department reviews discussion for entities. >> i know it's not regulated and we have it as a discussion a few years ago there was definitely strongly from the neighborhood. i know this and city has support. i don't equate a stumbling block. the positive side is on the north side of market street you really hardly any and cds. i think the with of market street and the difficulty to cross its makes this location okay. i just felt i need to raise the
3:35 am
other issues because they are issues. the animation on the north side is there anything we can ask them how the windows are being treated with certain graphics or what ever. i don't know. what is it we can do that comes with 44 feet back into the it's a more positive appearance? >> commissioner, i would point out drawing i guess the very back of the packet has the plan. i think the intent correct me if i'm wrong, the intent the windows remain transparent and the waiting area be put in front and you'll see a screen wall inside of that. the waiting area will be visible from the street. is that correct? kris that is correct we work sponsored week to maintain active street frontages. i made a strong suggestion to project sponsor they borrow the great idea they have actually at their existing dispensary operated coast &
3:36 am
blinds vinyl window.. we cannot regulate blinds obviously in the planning code. that would maintain transparency per 145 the wall that judge-his opponent also it provides some level of privacy for the patients but is not immediately block off the you from the street. so the book achieving both goals. >> it's not that you have not thought about that i think that's helpful you are explaining that >> commissioner richards >> one quick question can you go in brief detail-brief points what you're dated of conduct is for your members even >> standard of conduct >> yes >> tendered of conduct is obviously you're a patient. conduct yourself in a simple way. we don't allow for anyone
3:37 am
to consume out on the streets. our security make sure that anyone is caught smoking anywhere near outside the street we 86 memo from the club. in terms of best practices, we want to make sure that our ents are saved in the did >> to when your cameras are monitoring the front are you monitoring the footage? >> of course >> of i came in as a patient and in him whatever i bought >> we know who you are and your 86 red white >> i support the project. thank you >> commissioners there's been a motion but i do not hear a second >> second >> thank you commissioner richards on a motion to take er and approve the project commissioner antonini nay hillis aye moore aye richards aye fong aye so moved that motion passes for-one with commissioner antonini voting against. commissioners about places us on general public woman for which i have no speak regards >> any general public comment be one not seen any one final time commissioner antonini, congratulations to you
3:38 am

>> welcome to "culturewire." today we are at recology. they are celebrate 20 years of one of the most incredibly unique artist residency 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
3:46 am
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.
3:47 am
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,
3:48 am
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
3:49 am
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.
3:50 am
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.
3:51 am
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
3:52 am
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."
