Collapsing Space & Time http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220436908?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS http://www.utdallas.edu/calendar/event.php?id=1220436908?WT.mc_id=CalendarRSS Friday, Nov 17 - Friday, Dec 29
(9 a.m. - 7 p.m.) Location: The Gallery at Continental Lofts, Deep Ellum, 3311 Elm St., Dallas, TX, 75226.

Reception: TBA

Artist: Nicole Reusser

Exhibition: Collapsing Space & Time: an illumination of realities through screens

Collapsing Space & Time: an illumination of realities through screens is sponsored by Creative South USA. For more information about The Gallery at Continental Lofts and Creative South USA visit @creativesouthusa on Facebook.

Artist Statement/Description: Nicole Reusser aims to photograph today’s culture, the experience of “living within screens.” She defines this arena as a space where people dwell at times to escape from reality. Simultaneously, she observes how daily tasks can only be accomplished through use of this technology. For the artist, the reliance on mobile screens leaves people stagnant in the present. She considers how the blue glow emanating from a screen almost takes on an ominous presence within a given space. Screens begin to replace the role of a friend or become an all-seeing eye, witnessing the user's activities. Her images comment on the relationship between the two-dimensional world and the user's detachment from reality. 

Bio: Nicole Reusser is completing her degree in Visual and Performing Arts from the University of Texas at Dallas. She has a concentration in Visual Arts with an emphasis in Photography; her practice involves both digital and black & white film processes. Her photographs have been featured in exhibitions in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex and she also works as a freelance photographer. Frequently, she has adopted the role of the director by constructing the scene to be photographed. In her current series, she takes a step back and allows the camera to convey the apparent reality of everyday life as technology competes for the attention of her subjects. Growing up in one of Texas' smaller towns, she cherishes tradition while challenging the impulses that drive our present day's momentum.

Artist Statement/Description: Through the study of Nature and the human figure, Natalie Barletta attempts to revitalize a respect among the audience for the Earth we inhabit by emphasizing connections and frailty we share with the environment.

Bio: Born and raised in Texas, Natalie Barletta is graduating from the University of Texas at Dallas with a degree in Visual and Performing Arts.  Her concentration is in Visual Arts with an emphasis in Photography; she also is completing a minor in Environmental Studies. Through her background in Psychology and her experience as a member of the UT-Dallas Sustainability Club, Natalie is working to stimulate the intimate relationships we have with Nature and to spread awareness and appreciation of the interconnectedness between humans and our forever-giving environment.
