Scalehouse Voices Presents Stephen Slappe
Time & Location
About the Event
Stephen Slappe a multidisciplinary artist and educator who will share a short documentary on his research and practice.
Slappe collects, dismantles, and rebuilds images in an effort to understand their structure and meaning. Through amassing audiovisual archives, both physical and digital, he identifies social patterns and quirks that can be drawn out of source material to reveal the blurry space between our representations and ourselves. Spanning time and media format in order to reveal patterns that do the same, these archives include original and found photographs, screenshots, videotapes, and films. Using video, installation, and photography, my work over the past decade has evolved from satirizing television and film tropes to examining the influence of social media and mobile devices on our everyday experience.
Scalehouse Voices are talks about imagery and ideas, practice and process, creativity and contemporary culture with artists and visionaries. These events are in partnership with OSU-Cascades and take place on the OSU-Cascades campus, or online.
