testing, testing

The Lab at Silver Eye | August - October 2018

testing, testing honored a space for trying, failing, and trying again—without any guarantee of success. Selena Hurst and Emma Vescio invited 7 artists to present work that is not yet resolved, and which welcomes questions, critique and constructive feedback. The resulting exhibition is an opportunity for viewers to observe and participate in the experimental phase of the artistic process.

“THINK ALOUD is an active participant exercise in visual literacy. What does it mean to dissect an image? If we diagramed images like we did sentences in school, would we have a better understanding of imagery in an image-driven world? This exercise serves to explore our cognitive process and to look at how we gather and interpret information from a photograph. Bringing the often unconscious act of categorizing and defining photographs into a conscious state allows the participant to better understand how they make connections with images and what information, real or contrived, the viewer receives from images. As you sort through and choose photographs, share your process of selection and consider how you are connected with them and with the finished work as a whole”
