Julie Shafer - We are always, only, ever walking in ghosts.

Artist presentation

Friday, October 05 - 11:00AM to 11:45AM
401 Design Building

Julie Shafer's research explores remote landscapes that hold traces of historic, political moments in time and uses processes that allow photographic material to render varied records of a space, making intangible, often "inconvenient truths" visible. She uses photographic processes such as pinhole photography, lumen prints, chemigrams, and extremely long-exposures, as well as producing rubbings on-site in the landscape. The results are left open to chance; the site or situation dictates a process, with results that are often abstract but are achieved through a precise rendering of a place. Her works function as a type of evidence, not to foreground authenticity or accuracy, but rather to serve as an interpretative expression.
