Life is a passage, time moves on with or without us. Yet we are human and yearn for a sense of belonging and connection. These are the words that welcome us to the new exhibit YESTERYEAR, photographs by Alison Watt Jackson in the Museum of Art’s First Gallery, December 7 – 31, 2012. Among her black and white photographs are long unused ice skates, and a storefront frozen in time. Ms. Watt Jackson manages to find diminutive visual moments in the world around her. Alison Watt Jackson is a fine art photographer who has participated in both solo and group shows throughout the United States and has won several international awards. The San Luis Obispo Museum of Art is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting and exhibiting the visual arts. 1010 Broad Street. Hours are 11 am to 5 pm daily, closed Tuesdays. Admission free.

Pointing a live video camera at it’s own projection gives what is known as a "video feedback loop". The camera reads the screen and then projects the image, in a repeating vortex. By carefully adjusting the angles and standard controls on a mid-1990's-era video camera, Ethan Turpin isolates the self-sustaining patterns. The real-time animation can move from patterns resembling pantheistic design to microorganisms expanded to a human scale, evoking the uncanny feeling that life has emerged from within the system. Participants can move in the space between the camera and projection screen surface, integrating into the abstracted image.

Lapsus is an International call for photographic and video projects curated by the Italian critic Marinella Paderni which invites artists to reflect on how “History of art shows us that many works were born of accidental 'mistakes' which occurred during the execution of a project, the taking of a picture or the recording of a video". More about the theme: http://www.celesteprize.com/lapsus2013/ Each project can contain up to 10 photographs and/or videos. By 30 March, 15 projects will be chosen by the selection panel. At the exhibition opening on 17 May 2013 the curator of Lapsus, Marinella Paderni, will choose the three winning projects and award € 2,000 prizes. Exhibition of the 15 projects will be at the fsmgallery, Florence and will run from 17 May to 15 June 2013.
