“Snapshots” is a series for which ARTnews loans artists a Lomo’Instant Automat Glass camera and asks for glimpses into their lives, with captions to match. In this installment, the artist Oscar Tuazon documented different views of his studio in Los Angeles, which is made up of three “zomes,” or hollowed wooden structures consisting of 11 polyhedral units taken from the 2016 Art Basel presentation of his architectural installation Zome Alloy. Tuazon refers to these zome installations as a “water schools,” since the structures become places for discussion and education about their locations and surrounding environs. Below, a tour of Tuazon’s Los Angeles Water School (LAWS, for short) through the artist’s own eyes.
