Food For Thought


Kenosha, WI 2006 (Jello)
I finally escape the cold this week and head down to Charlotte, NC for the opening of the group exhibition Food For Thought at the Light Factory. I’ll also be giving a lecture on my work as part of the festivities (though I can’t guarantee streamers or cake).

Food For Thought, is curated by Ariel Shanberg, Executive Director, the Center for Photography at Woodstock.

Across the globe, food defines cultures and communities. It comprises and fuels entire economies. Its presentation, delivery, and subsequent consumption can express or stimulate that which words cannot. Every cycle of life within every culture, is in some way marked or symbolized through food. Food For Thought brings together artists working in photography and video whose creations explore personal and cultural connections to food.

Food For Thought features artist photographers Sian Bonnell, Christine Chin, Stephanie Diamond, Lucas Foglia, Mary Magsamen and Stephan Hillerbrand, Mary Parisi, Susana Reismanand Brian Ulrich.

Opens March 6th from 6-9pm
My lecture is at 7:30pm

The Details:
March 6 – June 29, 2008
The Light Factory
Spirit Square, Suite 211
345 North College St.

    I’d just like to say that i’ve just come across your blog through your site, which in turn was linked from Nathan Baker’s site.

    I absolutely love your work, and you’re now bookmarked

    thanks for cheering up my all-nighter getting uni work done!

    Wow. That’s a fantastic photo. Who knew Jello was popular enough to fill that many shelves? Or that so many people buy it pre-made when all you have to do to make it is add water?

    Thanks both. Lisa yes the Jello is daunting and hopefully a bit more complex and eerie in the picture. My favorite is the ‘Country Maid Lime Perfection Fruit Ring’
