    Coming Friday, February 23, 10:30 a.m. - noon in VA215

    Peter Bahouth's medium is stereoscopic three dimensional photography, a process that was developed in the 1830s. Bahouth designs his own viewers, often incorporating sculpture, sound, or signage, as an invitation to look – to observe the photograph outside the present context. Like looking through a hole in a fence, it is a peek behind the surface that requires the active choice and participation of the viewer. Looking into the viewer in this way also removes all other external visual information. This focus of visual perception through the display and onto an image where depth and space are intensified is intended to create a more personal experience with the subject. By totally isolating the visual experience as well, there is a sense of being projected into the image and into another place and time.

    Assistant Professor Deborah Hutchinson has invited Andew Hayes to lecture about his work and teach a workshop for KSU art students.

    Andrew Hayes grew up in Tucson, Arizona and studied sculpture at Northern Arizona University. The desert landscape inspired much of his early sculptural work and allowed him to cultivate his style in fabricated steel. After leaving school, Andrew worked in the industrial welding trade. While living in Portland, Oregon, bouncing between welding jobs and creating his own work he was invited to the EMMA collaboration. This one-week experience was liberating for Andrew and he was encouraged by his fellow collaborators to apply to the Core Fellowship at Penland School of Crafts. During his time as a Core Fellow, Andrew was able to explore a variety of materials and technique. Surprisingly, the book became a big part of this exploration. In this work he faces the challenge of marrying the rigid qualities of metal with the delicacy of the book page.
