Alan Orrison Thesis Exhibition: Natural Wonder

MFA Thesis exhibition by Alan Orrison

Humankind seems to have an innate desire to commune with nature. Indeed, connecting with the natural world has been shown to be vital to our well-being. In an attempt to surround ourselves with elements of nature, we create imitations and counterfeits—but to what end? How far do these substitutes go in fulfilling our basic needs? And how do they measure up in contrast to the purity of the natural world?

SCAD is hosting "An Evening with Design*Sponge" on Thursday, Oct. 27, from 6-8 p.m. at Arnold Hall. Grace Bonney is the founder and writer for this HUGELY popular web site and will do a lecture, Q&A with the audience, then sign books at a reception. She's looking for a photographer who can take images of the event that she can post to her blog (which gets more than 300,000 unique visitors each month). While she doesn't have a budget to pay the photographer, this could be a nice way for a student or young alum to continue building their portfolio, and Grace would give the photographer full credit for images on her web site, meaning their work would be seen by a huge audience. Attached is more info on Grace and the book she's promoting through the event.

Patterson / Malghan : New Photography, Hong Kong

Photography MFA students Mike Patterson and Ajay Malghan are having an exhibition in Hong Kong that will run from now until November 5. It is called Patterson / Malghan : New Photography and features three different bodies of work. Mike's work involves a new process in which he records digital video, converts it into still frames, and then uses statistical analysis to layer the frames in order to visualize motion trails over time. Ajay is showing two bodies of work, one which is camera-less and was made by putting thin slices of different foods directly into the color enlarger to create intricate and colorful abstractions that show food in a whole new way. His other work consists of night time long exposures of air traffic outside of various airports in major cities.

The show is at Saffron Gallery, located at 102 Stanley Plaza, Stanley, Hong Kong.
There will be an opening reception tonight, October 14, from 6:30 to 10:00. If you are in Hong Kong before November 5, be sure to check it out!

MFA Thesis Exhibition Mi'chel Jarjoura

Trace (noun and verb)

Savannah College of Art and Design

MFA Thesis Exhibition by

Mi’chel Jarjoura

Our personal possessions reveal our character and provide us with tangible markers of our memories. The photographs from the series Trace (noun and verb) are an exploration of my own memories and biography. I have photographed my own possessions, both mundane and memorable and those of my family members. These objects possess a history and contribute to the telling of the story of my life and the lives of those closest to me. In the private, interior spaces within which these material possessions are held, our most intimate facts, fictions and secrets are commemorated.
