Multidisciplinary artist and alum Corey Escoto's online MFA Lecture Series talk will integrate Zoom technology to provide a more interactive, gamified experience.
Escoto's recent work—a body of experimental, large format analog photographic works created with a "Polaroid" format—seamlessly fuses multi-exposure image-fragments into visually flummoxing illusions of space and text. With the Hollywood film industry and common cinematic tropes as their subject, Escoto's photographs both embody and examine the idea of illusion building, and by extension reinforce the mutually causal relationship between the events that comprise the contemporary social and political everyday, and the mass media machine (in all of its forms) that attempts to describe it. Additionally, a new series of bronze tissue box sculptures exploring the emotional response to sustained climate of fear and uncertainty are in the works.
