Seeing / Being – Call for Entries: Deadline is Oct. 19th!!!
From Professor Jay Gould and Tim Mahoney (Photo ’15)
Call for participation Deadline October 19
Middendorf Gallery, November 5 – 16
This exhibition welcomes the varied interactions of photographic rendering and sculptural materiality. We want to see how you choose to interpret this theme by submitting work to potentially be included.
The interaction of photography and sculpture has an incredibly rich history and is constantly evolving. In many cases, both emphasize the materiality of the work and visually demonstrate the properties specific to a material. This may be the materiality of whatever surface a photograph is produced on, or a visual dialog between materials in a photograph and the materials existing in three dimensions. Photographs often serve to record ephemeral sculptures that cannot exist more than a moment or even evade the sensitivity of our eyes.
Where do you see the interaction? Can you show the audience this? We challenge you!
