Using stop motion video, objects in states of disintegration or reintegration and layers of sound and light in order to create a bridge between self and other, memory and loss, separation and synthesis. Go to ( for a revue of rememberment. The exhibition is free and open to the public.

The Practice of Collaboration, Community and Collectivity During the panel discussion on The Practice of Collaboration, Community and Collectivity in art practices each participant will present work they have done as artists, educators, curators, writers, collective members, etc. that involved or necessitated collaboration or work within community. There is much to say about the struggle and success of negotiating a plurality of voices and concerns in the creative process. Participants will show examples of and speak briefly about their work in these areas citing specific experiences, and philosophies (5-10 minutes/person). We will then take questions and respond by engaging in dialogue between us. The panel will be held in the Arts & Consciousness Gallery, Saturday, November 7, 2009 5 pm – 7 pm. The event is free and open to the public.
