The photographs are printed, matted, framed, and hung. The lights have been set. The food has been bought. All that’s left is for the clock to strike 6 pm tomorrow, (Tuesday March 23), for the reception of Persisting Events to begin. So, for the last time I am going to give you a couple more reasons to come out and support the ASU Photography program and check out some student work!
Persiting Events is a senior group exhibition featuring 7 photography students at Arizona State University. It deals with the individual subject matters that has dominated our work, as well as continue to persist upon us the change and ideas that we are developing as artists. Each day transforms into the next, making us examine the causes and effects of our lives. Isela Wong challenges us to think about how a marriage changes once the kids have grown up and moved out. Scott Snyder shows the consistencies within our days, a half eaten apple tossed on the ground one day, is photographed by another student, which is then re-photographed completing some kind of harmonious connection within his wall of 100 gridded photographs. Danielle Savedra shows the power of God in her collection, Naomi Spears replicates grafitti art, while Laura Spittler explores spiritual death and the scientific process of documenting forensics. and my work questions the effects toys have on the kids playing with them.
So if that didn’t convince you… Here is my
