DISSONANCE, February 17 to April 16, 2011
Eleanor D. Wilson Museum at Hollins University, Roanoke, VA
“We use the process of our own encoded memories to reduce dissonance. Our recall of the immediate and distant past allows us to maintain a positive balance.”
Using the themes of reflection and protection, and regarding the concept that context affects all stages of human development, my one person exhibition will incorporate printed media, virtual imagery and actual objects cast, printed, and observed from, or about elements that are both natural and man-made. Some of these will be found in the Hollins University environs, the surrounding area, and others through exploring provocative images about global situations. All of these images and objects will be placed in groups as comparative thought provoking narratives and subalterns to convey a journey that deals with psychological time, places of experience and suspension of time. The groups include: Endangered, Armored, Preserved, Protected, a walking wheel and a video “Dislocated World” that relates to many layers of historical reference - our own encoded memories and what others consider.
