FLUIDRIVE: Modern Daguerreotypes


"The series of work, entitled 'Fluidrive' is focused on the use of ritual. I am interested in a lyric image that can be revisited by the viewer in the way one re-visits the feelings created in a song or prose. The daguerreotype is kind of a reliquary that you can hold in your hands and use like a prayer box. The fact that these "mirrors" last forever and have the ability to render subjects almost as a hologram puts us in a discussion with our own memories." -Curtis Wehrfritz



Artist's Talk and Reception: Friday, March 30, 6 - 8 pm
