Samantha Thompson: Amiada Rorschachs
WHEN: Sun, Dec 4, 2016 until Sun, Jan 8, 2018
WHERE: Marion Nicoll Gallery, LRT Walkway
Amiada Rorschach is a display of digital photographic work depicting movement in dance with reference to bilateral and rotational symmetry as well as Rorschach imagery. Working with dancers in the studio, I create and then digitally manipulate photographs to push what the viewer sees as an otherwise stationary and static image, and to extend the dancers’ movements. I would like viewers to take away the idea that there is more than one way to view photographs as well as dance.
Samantha Thompson is a 4th year painting major experimenting and working with photography and digital manipulation. Working with the ideas of movement and dance, she combines them with the ideas of symmetry and reflection to create visually stimulating and non-traditional dance photography.
