Evidence of Things Partially True: A Doc Photography Panel
This panel discussion will explore how photography is inextricably bound with what we consider to be true. Since photography's inception, its evidentiary quality has been utilized to document the minor spectacles of the everyday, to reveal hidden forces or to give credence to the improbable. The cosmologists working with the Hubble telescope rely on photographs to popularize their research yet are suspicious and somewhat dismissive of cosmic 'eye candy'. In terms of the paranormal, whether it is conspiracy theories of alien invasion or age-old tales of haunted houses, believers and skeptics alike have utilized photography and other modern technologies to prove or debunk the otherworldly. The artist/photographers on this panel represent a broad spectrum of artistic practice; Marsching's digital media work focuses on scientific investigations and collaborations with glaciologists; storytelling, cultural history and the quest to image the invisible are a part of Botz's long term investigations and Lamson employs photography and video to witness eccentric private performances. This panel will explore how artists employ photography and related media to examine the fuzzy edges of visual truth and the varied manifestations of evidence.-Mark Alice Durant, curator.
