Skull Sessions No. 1 & No. 2
The Skull Sessions are conversations rendered as form. Each Session is a dialogue recorded and reshaped into experimental publications, objects, images, and installations. The project is an ongoing collaboration between Andrea Galvani and Tim Hyde, a series of collective works that often involve other artists, architects, scientists, writers, and musicians.
The Skull Sessions No.1 is an experimental publication generated by a conversation with artist Saul Melman. Saul Melman makes sculptures and environments that integrate tactile and conceptual manifestations of the body. Melman’s recent work animates the inanimate, renders apartments invisible, and incorporates gold, salt, and saliva as material for performance. His installation Central Governor is a long term installation at MOMA/PS1. The conversation was recorded in 2012 in New York City.
Saul Melman was born in Baltimore MD, and lives and works in Brooklyn, New York. He creates immersive environments, performances, and sculptures that integrate tactile and conceptual
manifestations of the body.
