The IEA welcomed Alysia Kaplan of Rochester, NY as our artist in residence through the week of June 10th. Alysia uses photography, print and sculpture as a way to document conscious and unconscious desires to understand and navigate private and public spaces.

Throughout her residency, Alysia focused primarily on our silkscreen facilities, making a few different series of images. She took some of these and placed them in different spaces in the area and photographed them, printing the results. In the case of the deer print, it takes a look at an image in an out of place location, while the chair from the print shop piece distorts reality by having print and source side-by-side, with some obvious distortions of reality.

A few images of her work can be seen below.
