In Conversation: Sabrina Ratté & Deanna Pizzitelli

In Conversation: Sabrina Ratté & Deanna Pizzitelli

We were lucky to be able to have a virtual sit-down with Deanna and Sabrina, to discuss what seem to be apparent overlapping themes and ideas in their work. We hoped to gain a sense of how each artist approaches their work and see to what extent process overlaps. The result was a fascinating conversation that touched on how to represent subjectivities, the use of manipulation of media as a technique to alter ‘reality,’ questions of memory and place, and more.

Fading Dreams: The Photography of William Eakin

Fading Dreams: The Photography of William Eakin

Time keeps on slippin', slippin', slippin' into the future go the lyrics of a classic rock song, but it's also an apt phrase to keep in mind while considering the work of photographer William Eakin. Time – historical time, as well as geological and ideological time – weighs heavily on his work. Looking at his deceptively simple depictions of mid-century watch faces, bottle caps and re-photographed Polaroids, we are reminded of time's passage, how it not only imprints itself on objects we've produced and discarded, but how its passing also affects us emotionally and physically.
