Reception: September 16th, 2010
At the UAS +15 Gallery
We are four local photographers who are interested in the cityscape, the ebb and flow of life on the street, and the ways people affect their environment. UCFK aims to make photography more present in Calgary, and start a critical dialogue about photography and image-making.
This proposed work is about traces and marks humans make on their environment. Our urban landscape is splattered with evidence of humanity, sometimes lost in the architecture and often right in our faces.
This installation examines the bodily, ethereal and concrete messages that we leave for each other as signs speaking of society's excess, waste, paranoia, and temporality. These everyday images are often stepped over, passed by and generally overlooked, yet they're fascinating, conveying multiple meanings as symbols.
