"THERE is no THERE THERE: The Narrated Self" a sound and video installation by Richard Lewis
January 19 - February 3 in the Winfisky Gallery
In a slow moving, meditative combination of sound and image, Richard Lewis considers the narratives that we all construct in order not only to make sense of our lives. “We mythologize our lives, making ourselves the heroes of our own movies” says Lewis." This installation is both an examination of that phenomenon, and an example of it."
Richard Lewis has taught photography in the Art + Design department at Salem State for twenty-three years. He is bandleader and composer for the music performance collaborative Machine 475. He is constantly eager to engage with new media, and his artwork over the years has ranged from photography and music to sculpture and video installation. He graduated in 1992 with an MFA in Photography from the Rhode Island School of Design.
