View the Conjured Futures Gallery

Conjured Futures is a juried projection featuring photographic images that address or question new technologies, policies, and movements that are shaping the future of humanity. In this curation, we focus on projects that look at solutions or alternate outcomes. So often in western society do we see an emphasis that is put on destruction and problems, without considering what can be done to remediate damage.

In the last 5 – 10 years with the advent of drone photography and popularity of aerial photography, there have been many projects documenting the massive changes to the environment caused by human activity. These projects have helped to generate an understanding of humanity’s present environmental and socio-political crisis, and now it is time to think about the future. How are technologies being used to preserve and restore the environment? What does the future look like? What is being done to take control of our futures?

Featured Artists: Memphis Barbee, Xiang-yun Chen, Tara Cronin, Rebecca Hackemann, Abbey Hepner, Jeffrey Heyne, Adriene Hughes, Michael Jantzen, Ellen Jantzen, Sarah Knobel, Patrick McPheron, Avital Oehler, Jamey Stillings and Melanie Walker.

View the Color Cue Gallery

Color Cue: Explorations in Perception is a juried projection featuring photographic images that explore color as a subject, muse, and scientific phenomenon. Utilizing color theory and the effects of color combinations, Color Cue exposes an underlying conceptual framework that brings into question how the environment and culture affect the perception of color. For centuries color was considered an unexplained phenomenon until Isaac Newton discovered color waves in the 1660’s through his experimentations with sunlight and prisms. Through the years, humanity has continued to make discoveries and create theories about how and why color is a part of the visual experience. Photography has played a vital role in advancing the understanding of the visual world – from the invention of color film to the creation of lenses, photography has helped us understand how we see.
