Scott Turri - Brown Bag Presentation

Thursday, September 14th, at Noon

In Scott Turri’s latest series The Longing Ritual the focus has been on the nature/culture continuum, in particular the search for real experience and a connection to the natural world. By using imagery from various personal rituals connected to cycles of repetitive behavior, the work represents a synthetic place where barriers interfere with direct experience. Photography, film, now virtual worlds are often the substitute and have become the closest we can get to the real thing. Turri’s work is meant to mimic this phenomenon. He is deeply interested in how as a culture we see through these different lenses including: photography, film, and the digital device.
