Collective Memory – Atrium Space

The current Atrium show in the UW-Milwaukee Union will be up for only a couple more days so if you haven’t seen some of this awesome student work yet be sure to stop through.  A description of the work is below and beyond that is a portion of the work in the show:

The works reference mass media visual culture in the manner of contemporary painter Johannes Kahrs: the students were to appropriate from any form of televisual, be it movies, television shows, videos, etc.  They then had to remove the original context and supply a new one by combining these varying images.  They also had to share their televisual pictures through my Classroom without Walls wiki, doubling the theme of ecology and collective constructs.  Issues dealt with also involve Roland Barthes’ essay on the Death of the Author, whereby the original intentions of the depicted films or shows were reinterpreted and recontextualized. A full project description is posted on the Atrium Space’s walls.
