ARTIFACT is terrifically happy to announce our re-re-invention of itself as a house reading series (again)! We started off that way & we’re excited to get back to our roots.

The address & directions are:
3263 Kempton Ave
Oakland, CA


*Amanda Davidson *will perform with the assistance of an audio tape, a part of her ongoing homage to lost technologies. With Judith Jordan, she makes a pants-pocket sized zine called *Parted in the Middle*. She hopes that by the time you are reading this bio, her website will be loaded up with new and breathtaking film clips, but even if it isn’t, she hopes that you will visit the site and enjoy the cartoon. Davidson also co-edits *Digital Artifact Magazine*, the Web based, narrative little cousin of the Artifact Reading Series. Look online at digitalartifactmagazine.comfor submission details on* *Issue 3:* We Made This for You Out of Nothing.*

He’s really excited about being back in a house.
