Opening reception: FEB 27 | Thur. 5-6:30 PM | Free

re-located is a body of work that attempts to relocate the viewers’ perceptions of image and place. Created using mobile scanning devices, these high-resolution, visual recordings utilize sample information gathered from particular sites and related materials. Employing the artist’s ability to render these artifacts over a controlled length of time, the resultant compositions represent visual “scores”, analogous to musical or filmic constructions where measures or frames are assembled into narrative flows of citations and references. These pieces represent a new and unique way of communicating and re-contextualizing the visual environment.

Jay Wolke, photographer and chair of the Department of Art and Design at Columbia College Chicago captures the complexity of different subjects showcasing their historic and natural landscapes. Wolke has had solo exhibitions throughout the world and his photographs have appeared in numerous publications including the New York Times and Time magazine. This brand new, never-before-seen exhibition will showcase a new body of work unlike Wolke’s previous projects.

re-located is a part of our 2013-14 exhibition series.
