Coriana Close Lecture

Archives and Information Warfare

Saturday, November 05 - 9:00AM to 10:00AM
Univ. of Arizona, Center for Creative Photography

Archives and Information Warfare

Archives are contested spaces which influence public perception through inclusion and exclusion. In the Wikileaks era this contest for meaning has become a war, with multiple stakeholders vying for the viewer’s attention and trust. How do we sort through archives to create our own understanding with governmental bodies and public relations agencies working overtime to shape public perception? Coriana Close will discuss sourcing material within archives for use in her photographic and digital video practice. From exhibiting defaced library books to creating her own multilayered archivally sourced images, her work explores archives as contested spaces in the construction of truth.
