Visiting scholar David Evan Todd (B.F.A./B.A. ’06) will explore the digital-analog relationship in photography today through a hands-on lecture during which you will be allowed to touch the art. This informal lecture will begin with a showing of Todd’s recent work on campus, combining the traditional platinum process and the digital negative, followed by an investigation into the darkroom process, and what it means to bridge the technological gap.
Todd is a conceptual artist engaged in redefining photography today. His interests reach all boundaries of the medium from history and theory, to fine art, to commercial imaging, and the popular consumer. Todd’s work has been seen widely in publications, online, and in gallery exhibitions in the U.S., as well as internationally.
