Run: September 9 – September 26
This is an exhibition of digital photographs taken by Beaver students, faculty, and staff in response to last winter’s phenomena of snow.
After the effects of New England’s major snow storms, people were inspired to take and share digital images of their surroundings. Shortly after the ice melted, Ms. Patel and Olumide Lucas ’13 asked the question, “What would a collection of these snow photos look like printed and installed in the Lincoln Gallery?” From there, the Beaver community was asked to digitally submit photos (many from smartphones) of “snow”.
As the photos were collected and printed, Olumide began to see interesting connections and a set of themes. The idea materialized into an exhibition now in the gallery. This process generated new questions to think about, such as:
- Why print digital images on paper and share them? What experiences will this create for people? Why not just send a link to a site like Pinterest, Instagram, Twitter, Facebook, etc.?
- How does “re-formatting” these digital images into a context of a gallery space change them? How does it change the people who took them?
- Do you share images with others everyday? How do you decide what to share, or is it something you just do?
Ideas? Please leave a comment below.
Enjoy the “snow.”
The gallery is open to the public Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.
