    Turning Memory by John Steck Jr.

    Evoking themes of ephemerality, physicality, materiality, fragility, and mortality, Turning Memory features photographs from the artist’s series Lament (Disappearing photographs). The exhibition also includes two exposure boxes where the images are created during the span of the exhibition, punctuating our need to permanently document and hold a moment longer. By allowing images to slowly disappear, Steck Jr. calls attention to the medium of photography and its ability to capture memories. Photography is seemingly forever, yet whether physical or digital, the medium remains as impermanent as the moment depicted in its frame


    OPENING RECEPTION – Thursday, February 2, 2017, from 6-9 PM at Blue Star Contemporary, at 116 Blue Star, and is free and open to the public.


    The exhibit runs in the Project Space February 2–May 7, 2017.
