E. Brady Robinson: Transfer
On View: Now – October 9, 2011
Winter Park, FL – The Cornell Fine Arts Museum at Rollins College is pleased to announce an exciting new summer photography exhibition by E. Brady Robinson. Ms. Robinson’s work is informed by a culture of instant and mobile image capture. She uses the camera to examine her environment and record fleeting moments of existence. E. Brady Robinson: Transfer is based on the concept of the drift – Drifting draws upon pure chance and opportunity for new and authentic experiences generated by different atmospheres from urban landscapes and new places. The snapshot aesthetic is utilized as means to quickly record, document and observe.
In Transfer, Robinson combines mobile image capture with the concept of the psychogeographic drift. Psychogeography is “the study of precise laws and specific effects of geographic environments, consciously organized or not, on the emotions and behavior of individuals”coined by French Theorist Guy Debord. The installation is a mapping of geography encountered at home and abroad.
The artist’s exploration of the formal qualities of the snapshot is met with rigorous editing and purposeful sequencing culled from over 1,000’s of images. The exhibition is a deliberate re-contextualization of sequential shots and describes a territory where the social/cultural landscape, personal experience and pure aesthetics meet. This presentation of thirty photographic images is dynamic and site-specific, designed by the artist herself.
E. Brady Robinson received her MFA in Photography from Cranbrook Academy of Art (1996) and BFA in Photography from The Maryland Institute, College of Art in Baltimore, Maryland (1993). Robinson is Associate Professor in the MFA program in Studio Art & the Computer atthe University of Central Florida. She maintains a studio in Washington, DC and Orlando, Florida.
