This innovative display uses digital art that invites community interaction to explore the complex relationships we have with our cameras and our self-images.
Cutting across commonplace assumptions, the interactive series shows how images cannot do without, but instead must require and inspire, stories about what’s visible and invisible.
Emmy Award-winning filmmaker and artist Jill Evans Petzall questions what it means to take a photograph, as she explores the fickleness of meaning within travel photography. This multi-layered work shows us that the photographic image creates a world of its own – and has the power to mediate our relationships to the world around us. Blending documentary style with poetic imagery, the exhibit offers photographs that Petzall shot over three years while in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, Myanmar, Laos, and Singapore.
Each story that viewers tell about a photograph lets us all see the world through someone else’s eyes.
