About this project

Update: Everyone's invited to the opening reception! See update # 3 for details.

I have been invited at short notice to take part in a three person exhibition at the Scandinavia House Gallery in New York City as part of the centennial celebrations of the American Scandinavian Foundation (ASF). In 2007 I received a fellowship from ASF that helped fund a trip to Iceland to make landscape photographs underwater at a unique location in a glacial lake. These photographs were used to create a sequence of 8 images of ambiguous landscapes entitled Rapture of the Deep. Scandinavia House Gallery would like to exhibit the entire series as light-boxes. The light-boxes will be custom made and will be quite expensive. I would like to raise $3000 from kickstarter.com to pay for 3 or 4 of the 8 light-boxes I will need. I will pay for the rest from my own funds. If I raise more than my goal the extra money will be used to pay for the remaining light-boxes.

This is an important opportunity for me. I live in Madison Wisconsin which makes it difficult for me to exhibit my work in New York City. I would like to take full advantage of this offer by showing all eight images in the “Rapture of the Deep” series in the best format for them. I’m offering high quality ink jet prints of an image of your choice as rewards. The top reward is a full sized transparency in a custom built light-box of an image of your choice from the Rapture of the Deep series, from a limited edition of 5 of each image. In the unlikely event that more than five people choose this option image selection will be assigned first come first served.

The exhibition will be called Unnatural Formations and it will run April 3, 2012 through June 30, 2012 at Scandinavia House, 58 Park Avenue, New York, NY 10016. The other artists in the show will be Simen Johan and Lydia Anne McCarthy.
