TOMORROW – Byron Wolfe Lecture, Monday, April 13th, 1pm in M010
Photographer Byron Wolfe will be speaking tomorrow, Monday, April 13th at 1pm in M010. Please join us for a fascinating discussion of his work with archives and the concept of “deep time.”
About the Practice: For nearly twenty years I have held a deep and abiding interest in ideas about place, history, time, perception, representation, and personal experience. In the broadest terms my work is a combination of scholarly and historic research, creative expression, and personal narrative. I like to think about my fields of exploration as starting with my own internal experiences and moving out from there in concentric ripples in time and space. Whenever possible, I prefer to work collaboratively on complex long-term research projects with students and colleagues in fields that range (so far) from the Visual Arts to Humanities and the Natural Sciences. My creative practice is grounded in photography and digital imaging, but I increasingly work in other media.
