The art-card/burn cards on front are from a performance piece where Richard had people write down a destructive obsessive thought and make a nipple print over it (sealing it away). The originals were burnt and placed in an urn (for a child). The art-cards were created from the originals to act as a reminder and a vaccine in the future.
Heather Meglasson: I’ve got to ask, what is a nipple print?
Richard ChauDavis: The nipple print part was done in public but in an anonymous fashion variously using a scarf, back to the crowd, or in a booth. I used high quality body paint to avoid any reactions after using acrylics on my nipples and having a real burning sensation. That nipple printing was fun, about 50/50 men and women, the overall project got fairly depressing. If I ever do it again I am going to figure out an upbeat theme... http://sdcitybeat.com/culture/seen-local/artistic-experimentation-home-larry-caveney-s-garage/is a fun review by Kinsee Morlan in which she mentions the process.
