We narrate our our own stories to make us separate and unique but we are a collective not a divided humanity. Ultimately that is what Visual history project is about.
Be yourself; everyone else is already taken.
Memory is the human element of time, ever changing as we use it to navigate through our lives. They are what make us human…we are the only species that can self reflect, our memories are all the impressions we take with us through life.
Our next exhibit will be at Satelitte at 523 East Frankin St. in Chapel Hill
Called..Local Histories…The Ground We Walk on Every Day January- June 2011. Panel discussions with local historians, activists, artists, folklorists and documentarians, musical evenings with local bluegrass, folk and electronica musicians, and local cuisine will be scheduled throughout the exhibition period.” Will keep you posted!
We are going to be creating a project for Rose Community Foundation Legacy Circle, a group of philanthropists who have bequeathed part of their estate so that the foundation can continue it’s work. This project will be a tribute to them and a way to archive their values.
This is our 4th project…each one a visual narrative of stories needing to be told.
Ok, I seem to know how to add words to our blog but having a hard time figuring out how to get the photos up…but I will find out and be back with photos.
Of course that is not the whole story, but that is the way with stories; we make them what we will. It’s a way of explaining the universe while leaving the universe unexplained, it’s a way of keeping it all alive, not boxing it in.
Just put up a Facebook page. Visit there too!
