Come make images inside a camera the size of an entire room! Utilizing the Hyde Park Art Center’s wet photographic darkroom, one of few left standing in the age of the digital, students will learn the basics of making photographic images inside and outside of the darkroom using the sun, handmade cameras and light sensitive papers, xerox machines, and scanners.

10 Week Multi-Media Art Course

Learn how that crazy art stuff is made! We will learn how to make our own paper, paint, and objects using the contemporary art installations throughout the galleries in the Hyde PArk Art Center (and my art practice) as a guide to make multi media installations. We will combine found and handmade materials with casting/moldmaking/bookmaking and brush the surface of simple electronics and optics as well!

ACCIDENTS OF GRAVITY is an exhibition of prints and sculptures invoking anxieties over trauma and loss, both past and present. On the wall are a series of wax transfer prints based on a photographic series destroyed in a house fire. The prints distort the original works into variations of black and white noise or static suggesting deteriorating vision, fading memories, and absence. The theme of gravity as a force is approached both in the physical sense and in describing the weight of experience. On the floor, an arrangement of objects pairing found and raw elements collected while traveling, sit precariously on top of minimally constructed tables. The materials of wood, porcelain, stainless steel, and coral are repeated as variable elements that present a range of relationships from the intended to the actual function, signifying the roles of observer, collector, and traveler.
