Virtual Art Gallery Talk – Photography and My Conversion project

Perry Slade
Nov. 10, 7:30 p.m. CT

Perry Slade will discuss his use of photography as his vehicle to create images, with primary focus on his ongoing Conversion project. His journey during this project began with a casual observation of a dilapidate painted line on the pavement which blended his visual sensitivity with thoughts of early, symbolism, society, art and human connection via the unintended. Perry also says he finds the intersection of what he refers to as “urban hieroglyphics” as produced by Highway Engineers and what could be seen as simplified mathematical equations, as part and parcel of his final photographic image.  Also noting the technology of the digital camera as a creative interface with that of heavy industrial machinery and the simple use a spray paint can.

His photography will be on display virtually in the Fermilab Art Gallery from Nov. 10, 2020, to Jan. 7, 2021.

“I have always felt that science, technology, and art are importantly connected, indeed science and technology seem to many scholars to have grown out of art.” —Robert Rathbun Wilson, Fermilab founding director
