GENERAL INFORMATION about Thee Instagon Foundation
many years in Southern California (Orange County), Thee Instagon Foundation
is currently located in the Sacramento,CA area of Northern California. This
move happened at the end of 2004.
Thee Instagon Foundation (TIF) functions as an "umbrella" moniker covering the creative notions, projects, ideas, and what not that involve (but are not exclusive to) the conceptual artist and creatist named LOB.
LOB creates. He is an idea man, a conceptual artist, a poet, a visualist, a musician, an event coordinator, promoter, manager, and much much more..
Thee music project or "band" called INSTAGON was started by LOB in early 1993 and created using Chaos Theory as an approach to playing music in an ensamble situation. This application of Chaos Theory, once applied to the "band" concept, gave way to many other ideas and creative endeavors, and thus Thee Instagon Foundation was born.
Thee Instagon Foundation was founded by LOB after a few years of his involvement with Thee Temple ov Psychick Youth,North America (TOPYNA), as a way to give a title to and coordinate some sort of focus for individuals to realize that all of the different projects that he was doing and propogating were acually from the same source.
Thee Instagon Foundation has done many projects including publishing, running a record label, music, live events, art shows, radio, TV, and more.. for more infomation on these past happenings, please check out the ARCHIVES pages on this website
"Instagon" means spontanaeity. It's a word that Lob coined to explain the moment of spontaniety. When an individual creates and is in the moment of creating, that moment happens and just as fast moves on.... and the creation comes to live and becomes something else. Every creative thought or notion has gone thru this tunnel, and hence when it happens it is gone in an instant.. "INSTAGON"
Thee symbol used by TIF and INSTAGON ( -/\- ) was created by LOB in his early teenage years. He has been using it as a personal symbol, representing him and his art since that time. It was only natural that this symbol would be used as the imagery for TIF and INSTAGON. The standard or "tribal" version of this symbol (seen in the upper center of this webpage) was commissioned and drawn for LOB by his long time friend from childhood, Phillip Metzler from Los Angeles,CA. Many other versions of this symbol have been created by many different artists, and many more are probably still to come.
