Memory Landscape Panel at Wiscon

I’m going on a much needed vacation on Saturday (Bless my cat sitter.) and since the deadline on Wiscon programming is the 18th, I wanted to get this up before I left. Lots of photos of new work when I get back

I’m excited about having my Memory Landscape panel at Wiscon in May.  The comments and conversation with the audience and the panel members there has been inspiring for the work in progress and has really affected it’s development.

I’ve developed Memory Landscapes further and added some new elements that I anxious to hear folks thoughts on. I think the panel description says it:

“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.”
