Going to Wiscon - Memory Lanscapes Panel

I’ve developed Memory Landscapes further and added some new elements including some voice and some images that are contemplative rather then directly memory.  Panelists are Nisi Shawl, Debbie Notkin, Emma Humphries and me.  It's on Sunday at 2:30.  I'm  looking forward to hearing people's thoughts.- it really influences my work in progress.

“Photographer Laurie Toby Edison's work-in-progress is “Memory Landscapes", a feminist visual memoir, to be implemented as an iPad art app. Memory is a form of time travel through your own time line. A visual memoir takes you into the artist's time line and lets you choose your paths through their lives. Memories are filtered, by who we are now, who we were then, and what has happened in between. We view our past through layers of memories, and the past is everything that happened except this moment. The panel will look at some of Laurie’s work in progress, and discuss the ways panelists and the audience re-engage with memories of their own lives. Laurie needs people's insights and experiences with memory to inform and inspire her work.”

I'm still finishing up the last bits of work before I go. Hopefully not til really late.
