about

shiloh burton, created the Identity Intelligence Institute in 2005 and has been actively engaged in the practice of photography for 23 years, exhibiting nationally since 2000. Collaboration is one fundamental aspect informing studio practice. She "makes" rather than "takes" photographs of the people she frames with her camera, in various forms of community engagement. Moreover, she creates environments to serve as contexts in making and exhibiting her images. She teaches both analog and digital photography, digital storytelling, and AP 2-D Studio Art at Irvington High School. In addition, she is the Director of the New Media Arts Academy (NMAA). Ms. Burton designed the NMAA to support struggling students and its mission is to equip students with the skills and tools necessary to be sought after media artists who choose their own path in the artistic and/or corporate worlds, and are empowered to speak truth through new media upon graduation.

M I S S I O N:
I. INVADING TRADITIONAL TERRITORIES WITH MESSAGES, MEDIUMS, AND SYSTEMS THAT DO NOT NORMALLY BELONG THERE.

II. UNDYING AND FOREVER QUESTIONING AND EVOLVING COMMITMENT TO
UNRAVELING THE CONFUSING CONCEPT, COMMONLY ASSUMED TO BE CONCRETE, AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY OR AT TIMES CONSCIOUSLY CONSTRUCTED AND PERFORMED BY US ALL: THE LIVED EXPERIENCE OF IDENTITY.

III. FIND AND CREATE THE CONDITIONS UNDER WHICH SOMETHING NEW IS
PRODUCED IN TERMS OF IDENTITY UNDERSTANDING, WHICH IS LINKED TO THE LOGIC OF MULTIPLICITIES, LAYERS, AND THEREFORE, INCLUDES AND/OR ENDORSES EXPANSION, PRODUCTION, PLAY, CREATIVITY, AND DIFFERENCE.

R E S O L U T I O N:
I. INVESTIGATE, INTERROGATE, INQUIRE, AND EXAMINE THE REAL RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN IDEAS, ART, SOCIETY, AND THE REAL LIFE CONSEQUENCES OF THE POLITICS OF REPRESENTATION.

II. WE QUESTION HOW SOCIAL INTERESTS, DISTINCTIONS, AND HIERARCHIES ARE CARRIED OUT THOUGH VARIOUS MEANS OF PHOTOGRAPHIC REPRESENTATION.

III. THE IDENTITY INTELLIGENCE AGENCY DECLARES THE FOLLOWING SOCIAL IMPERATIVE IRRESISTIBLE:

WE RECOGNIZE & PROTECT THE RIGHT OF EACH AND EVERY PERSON TO SELF-IDENTIFY AND AS A RESULT, RECONCEIVE THE WAY SOCIETY IS PREARRANGED and PREDETERMINED.
