Event description

Jim Campbell will present a lecture at Timken Hall on Wednesday,  September 7th, 4-7pm.

Jim Campbell will discuss his artwork and how he explores human perception and memory most often through the use of moving imagery.  Presenting moving low resolution images as well as film and photography Campbell will show works that have “too little” or “too much” information that should contradict comprehension, yet as presented reveal our ability to subconsciously interpret sensory data.
