Last night I had an opportunity to present my on-going Memory Pods project at Open Show LA, an event that is part of Month of Photography Los Angeles (MoPLA).

I was really honored by those my friends who attended and supported this presentation (Gerry Clausing, Sarah Lee, Chris Davies, Debe Arlook, Deborah Davis, Cia Foreman, Hannah Kozak, Paul Fernandez and Reidar Schopp to name only a few) and the really warm response to this project during and after my presentation. I was also joined by the others who were presenting including Michele Zousmer discussing her Irish Travellers project and who was in my photobook workshop last march.

In the photo above, I am discussing one of my very first images that I created in May of 2014 using my experiment/play process which resulted in the concept and ideas behind this project; that a plant’s memory is transmitted via it’s seeds and that the developing seed pods are similar to our brains for creating and holding our own memories.

That I had an opportunity to make this presentation at the Fabrik Projects gallery that represents me in Los Angeles was a really nice bonus. I had a framed print (Loss) hanging in the back of the presentation area to support my talk about this project.

Thus thanks to the Open Show LA organizers, Richard Chow and Jonas Yip along with Chris Davies of Fabrik Projects who hosted this event.

Cheers!
