Tech/sci-fi photographer to speak, share art April 25
Art educator and photographer Sam Davis will discuss his work and technique in a visiting lecture presentation Monday, April 25, from 5 to 6 p.m. in Studio Arts Room 411. The session is free and open to the public. Davis makes images that reference his family history (his father had once been a participant in an atomic test during the 1950’s). His images combine obscure technology, science fiction and childhood fantasy to call into question notions regarding memory, nostalgia, imagination and pulp/cyber folklore. Davis currently lives in Los Angeles and teaches full time at The Art Center College of Design in Pasadena. Prof. Sarah Detweiler of the Arts and Visual Design faculty is arranging the visit, which is co-sponsored by the student Art Agency and the Art discipline.
