Burning Trash: Amber Snow Pasiak at The Hamilton Center For The Arts, Hamilton NY, July 7 2012

Had another very enjoyable trip out to Hamilton NY on Friday to see a show of work by photographer Amber Snow Pasiak at The Hamilton Center For The Arts. Low tech photos combined with found object assemblies & a marvelous wall length montage of disposable camera snapshots, all of it exploring the artists' sub-rural New York State working class heritage. Here's some video taken at the opening reception:

And an album of pictures showing the work + installation views. I was encouraged by her use of text and scrappy remnants which most would regard as refuse. No, it's artmaking materials, and here's what you do with it ...

My favorite piece from the collection of works.
