Artist Lecture: Jason Salavon
Thursday, September 15, 2011, 7:00 - 8:30 PM
Students, Henry Members, and PCNW Members FREE
General Audience $5
Join Henry exhibiting artist Jason Salavon (The Digital Eye) for a talk about his work exploring topics ranging from population statistics and intelligent software to the evolution of soft-core pornography.
Using software processes of his own design, Jason Salavon generates and reconfigures masses of communal material to present new perspectives on the familiar. Though formally varied, his projects frequently manipulate the roles of individual elements arranged in diverse visual populations. This often unearths unexpected pattern as the relationship between the part and the whole, the individual and the group, is explored. Reflecting a natural attraction to popular culture and the day-to-day, his work regularly incorporates the use of common references and source material. The final compositions are exhibited as art objects, such as photographic prints and video installations, while others exist in a real-time software context.
This lecture is open to the public and is also part of a photography workshop, on September 14th, put on by our partners over at Photo Center Northwest. For more information on the workshop and to find out how to register visit pcnw.org
