Amy Leibrand Solo Show
In the age of the “selfie” fueled by social media, the representation of our personality has become more and more streamlined. We have the possibility to project an idea of how we are as a person into the world around us, but with the constant option of altering truth and inventing fictional characters. Never have we had access to so much information about each other, and never has the information been so unreliable. Connection Status studies the degradation of reality via the self-portrait by emphasizing the images’ digital components, as well as challenging their flat, two-dimensional state. In this series, the portrayed accuracy of images is corrupted using both digital and physical means. Code corruption was employed as a method to alter portions of data in the image files, resulting in random and unpredictable decomposition of images. Glitch iterations, on the other hand, were controlled, and supplementary pixelation and/or physical embellishment was tactically applied to further degrade the work. Physically distorted images were strategically cut apart, shifted and folded to dispute the representation of the subject, which is perceived as accurate when the image is presented in a flat, composed state. Through these means, Connection Status seeks to emphasize the transient nature of images and their potential for deception. Presented separately are two images, Broken Boundaries and Let’s Jump off a Cliff, which are the beginnings of an exploration into how we view seemingly insurmountable obstacles. These images aim to communicate how our perception affects action. The works are composites of original images.

Dana Lynn Harper is an installation/experiential artist who uses non-traditional materials to create installations and environments – some minute and others all-encompassing – that draw the viewers into other worlds. “Equally inspired by vast landscapes and infinitesimal plankton and pollen,” her work challenges notions of size and perspective while remaining playful and approachable in nature.
Join us on Saturday, August 9th from 6-9 to meet the artist and enjoy her creative use of the space in and around Second Sight Studio!
Harper is one of three artists participating in the live/work residency program at Second Sight this summer.
