Tech/sci-fi photographer will be visiting guest lecturer April 25
Art educator and photographer Sam Davis of Los Angeles will discuss his work in a visiting lecture 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) and combine obscure technology, science fiction and childhood fantasy to call into question notions regarding memory, nostalgia, imagination and pulp/cyber folklore. Davis 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.
