it’s fun taking photos of other people! i get a break from being concerned with what i look like and i can make others look good on camera! my experience as a model helps me work behind the camera. both go hand in hand along with my experience in graphic design- making good compositions in the frame. having empathy for what it’s like being both behind and in front of the camera. i look forward to taking photos of others more often!

decrease the corporation
increase cooperation
by shannon kringen

listen to me speaking it here:

incast the outcast
outcast the incast
incast the outcast
outcast the incast
decrease the corporation
increase cooperation
decrease the corporation
increase cooperation
thrive on deadlines
alive in headlines
thrive on deadlines
alive in headlines
authentic ejaculation of my soul
molten orange liquid glow
anger takes its toll
authentic ejaculation of my soul
molten orange liquid glow
anger takes its toll
fragile sense of self
intangible desire for wealth
unwrap the mummy
running
clap away the trap
inconoclast landed here
dear art and fear
incast the outcast
blasting puritanical canister
common ground
astounded in the round
center well
do tell
out of shell
unguarded
no longer a martyr
vexing
letting ampersands free
to a degree
free to be
you and me
not necessarily joining
making peace with it
uncover whats within
releasing chemical
hard wired competition
a new kind of nutritional
intuition coming to fruition
thrive on deadlines
alive in headlines
raw energy source
divorced of course hoarse voices
cutting down
looked the self in mirror
said good bye
critics kindling for fire
hiring desire
walking the high wire
longing to ring
bringing in singing
belonging
leaving us in
win win
believing
unusual love affair
twirling hair
carry up the stair
dare to stare down fear
getting clear
resisting wistful
curving straight
unravel in travel
features creatures
with outreaching heart
hear
art
heart
authentic ejaculation of my soul
molten orange liquid glow
anger takes its toll
incast the outcast
outcast the incast
incast the outcast
outcast the incast
decrease the corporation
increase cooperation
decrease the corporation
increase cooperation
thrive on deadlines
alive in headlines
thrive on deadlines
alive in headlines

Bio:
Multi Media Artist Shannon Kringen grew up in San Diego California and Whidbey Island Washington. She is a self taught photographer with a background in Graphic Design. She has worked as a figure model in Seattle since 1992.  She completed her BA degree in Arts and Literature from Antioch University in 2013. She sees her creative expression as a tool to connect with community and a way of increasing self awareness and tap into a deeper wisdom within.

Artist Statement:
I work with cameras and paint improvisationally. I am very kinesthetic and use my whole body when I create.

In my photography,  I  fall in love with shape, texture and light while out wandering. I like to capture what is naturally there but in a way that abstracts it and allows the viewer to notice something new and different about ordinary physical reality. I carefully compose all my photos spontaneously as I am shooting moving the camera angle until I see what looks like a balanced, dynamic composition.

In my painting, I allow my hands to move intuitively on the canvas creating shapes and textures that feel right. I repeat patterns and choose colors from somewhere beyond my thinking mind. I am very inspired by the repeating patterns I see in nature. Plants and animals move me a great deal.

I am taping into my unconscious and go into a dream like state when I create art.

Goddess KRING had a great time at Scarecrow Video Channeling Yourself Event!

goofie us! me and my good friend! we celebrated after the channeling yourself event and had a nice dinner.

thank you everyone who came to the channeling yourself special event at Scarecrow Video i had such a good time being with a live audience while they screened promos for the documentary and clips of my show “Goddess KRING” and of another show on public access called “Heart Attack Theater”. i got to take Q & A from the audience after we watched clips of my show and “Typecast Dragon” another short documentary made about my show. i was happy and proud to be there. i forgot to take many photos. i hope some people took them! it was video taped….i don’t have a copy….i love being in front of an audience and being asked questions! so fun to answer and have people curious about my ideas and wanting me to share my experiences….

i was going to take a photo of the audience just before i left the stage and the moment ran away from me! it felt so good to be in front of people and share about my experiences doing my tv show “Goddess KRING” for 15 years! what a treat. i wish i could show you a photo of what it looked like for me being in front of them! i felt excited and nervous and happy and proud and grateful. i was very happy that people came up to me after and thanked me, asked more questions and shared their own stories with me! felt so good to communicate with them!

i really do love being on stage after showing a video of mine then answering questions they have for me about topics i care about. i would love to do a ted talk one day on something inspiring. i have some unique ideas to share from my own life experiences….it’s such a treat having people interested in what i am saying and asking me interesting questions! i love it. LUXURY.

Saturday Night 7-10pm Seattle: Scarecrow Video and the producers of the upcoming documentary Channeling Yourself invite you to join us for an evening with Shannon Kringen (Goddess Kring) and Kelly Hughes (Heart Attack Theatre!).

June 20th is the first in a series highlighting The Golden Age of Seattle Public Access.
