The first event sought to celebrate and examine plant and animal life as they react to absence of sunlight. In it’s fourth incarnation Ebonza’s artists have thematically substituted lack of sunlight for a lack of healthy economy.

“Economy may ring a tone of being rooted in money, but when everything is based on money, your lights get turned off in economic collapse,” says Vimana.Jefferson Mayday Mayday Vimana of Immaginarium is known for his wide variety of releases. In addition to his musical endeavors as a “Cataclysmic Dining Pianist,” Vimana has worked with Kurse Go Back, Soft Sex Girl’s Brigade (Maia Serena), Metacartography and Anakrid (Chris Bickel). He has published three books, “Science: Omnipotent Art Form” (2002), “Evicted Riddlebook of Unknockupied Logic,” a critically acclaimed 3D collage series (2003), and “Omiphantozmiss Envelopex,” (2004). Vimana is the creator of two board games, “Outerground Railroad” (2005) and it’s sequel, “Language: A Dead Language” (2007). In his most recent release, “Language: A Dead Language” Vimana “abandons collage and embraces drawing as a main magic sorce.”His Immaginarium has been striving to archive independent releases and publications for over ten years. The Immaginarium is both a transient locale as well as an art collective. The temporal facilities currently called “Immaginarium” hosts ritual events primarily centered around sound and escape. The Immaginarium is also known for Twanda, Vimana’s customized van, whish has served as the Pure Injoyment “Mobile Liebury.” The now defunct Mobile Liebury contained hundreds of independently published zines and a large variety of thoroughly manipulated thrift store books.

Liebury clientele were encouraged to completely revamp books before returning them. Recently, Vimana has been working with stop animation attempting to expand gaps just beyond the subliminal influence, “in order to advance evolution in 4th dimensional thought.” Seven Eight is a direct reaction to the digitalization of popular media, premiering in the month of September at Space 1026 and Brooklyn’s Legendary Silent Barn. Seven Eight’s gumball machines with one dollar pieces of art work, offer works by PEDRO, Dan Brown, DEEKER, Dark Cloud, Maggie Pounds, Delilah Knuckley, MORPHEOUS, Brian Narwhalz and AVOID pi. In addition to Seven Eight, and Permanent Ink Issue 11, there will be decks of Tarot cards available, all designed by artists exhibiting works in Ebonza.
