Fault Line by Sophie Barbasch
"I chose the title because a fault line alludes to where the earth splits in an earthquake, a metaphor for a divided family with a complicated history, and also alludes to fault, or blame. I wonder, how does a family support each other, even when things aren't perfect?"
PUTPUT: Everyday is different!
In sculptural or other three dimensional work you are quite of able to move around the object, to discover different perspectives and to decide what you want to see. Photography simply gives us the means to both document and decide what we want the audience to see…maybe we are control freaks!

Plants in Error by exercise and edit
The unconventional vases are customised for the weeds. The forms are inspired by their different characters, postures, textures, or stories.

Cache by Dana Stirling
Family albums had become a standard in a process of portraying a family and the creation of a collective memory.

Sometimes we don’t even remember the occasion but we can relive it by looking at the picture and assuming we remember the memory it represents.
Days of Threshold by Jeremy Ayer
My images are about souvenirs or memories of certain places or actions. I think of them as visual echoes. There is something very intimate and familiar about these images but it is not shown overtly.
