Shana McCaw & Brent Budsberg


Friday, October 25 - 10:10AM to 10:50AM
Saint Kate Hotel: Simone Ball Room A

When Shana McCaw and Brent Budsberg began collaborating in 2001, their work centered around sculpture, installation and performance, while the camera was primarily thought of as a tool for documentation. Seeking a secondary audience for their often ephemeral events, photography became an increasingly important means of presentation and offered a way of transforming sculptural objects and ephemeral performances into static and moving images. Eventually the camera supplanted the live audience and the photographic image became the primary means of representation. Longing for the lost physicality of sculpture, McCaw and Budsberg began to treat the printed image and its frame as sculptural material. Their presentation will survey the arc of their 18 year multidisciplinary collaboration, focusing on its ever-changing relationship to the camera, while also presenting new and in-progress work that questions the distinctions between object and image.
