 Blending visions

Joined by student observer Tom Turner (pursuing his MFA at Texas Tech University) on the last day of the 2012 Meeting Place reviews. He behaved himself very well, though he did abandon me for one session after lunch to go and photograph room 2016 after I packed and checked out; apparently his current project involves just such post-guest, pre-housekeeping rooms. Keep your eyes open for a photo of shoes in a bathroom wastebasket.
  • Christopher Schneberger – the only portfolio I saw that included 3-D imagery, employed to give extra credibility to a contrived story about Frances Naylor, a legless girl who learns to levitate – a keen sense of historic syntax helps Chris fashion credible narratives, including a contemporary tale of a domestic ghost, a young girl from the early 20th century visible only in reflections  link
  • Vivian Keulards – a Dutch view of America, limited in time to about 3 years and set in area code 80439 (Denver vicinity) – what she records are memories she doesn’t trust her mind to recollect – largely interactions with people whose ties to place are both remarkable and mundane but somehow distinctive  link
  • K.K. (Kim) DePaul – a stunning story of family secrets and the impact on the individual, told in fragments of archival materials, self-portraits, collage, and writing  link to video about project
