Dana Dana Dana
In 2004 Dana Smith founded a fine arts digital press for the purpose of creating limited edition artwork. The project is called Dana Dana Dana and can be seen in its entirety online at www.danadanadana.com. Very small edition, hand-made books and digital prints are the focus with an emphasis on working collaboratively with other artists. The books and print editions are represented by Booklyn Artists Collective, Brooklyn, New York, and have traveled to fairs and exhibitions world wide, and are housed in libraries, museums, and private collections internationally. Dana’s longest collaboration has been with Mark McCloud, artist and renowned overseer at the Institute of Illegal Images, a massive collection of LSD related art in San Francisco. Together Dana and Mark created “LSD Barbie” in 1993 (as shown in the background of the photo of Dana), and later in 2003 started www.BlotterBarn.com, an ongoing project to document Mark’s extensive collection of blotter papers.
