Venice Arts: In Neighborhoods will be hosting the LUCID exhibit at the gallery beginning June 30, 2006, with a closing reception on Saturday, July 30, 2006 from 4 - 6 pm.
LUCID is an ongoing pinhole photography project that began in 2001 and was created during artist residencies in Los Angeles, California and Wilmington, Delaware. The artist, Brian Moss, has worked primarily with participants from The Wellness Community, a national organization that provides support to cancer patients and their families. Together, the group built pinhole cameras that they used to create images, including self-portraits and portraits of significant people in their lives. The project gave the participants an opportunity to alter their normal relationship with self-image, over which they often had little control due to their illness. Aspects of pinhole photography that find an echo in the conditions of life touched by cancer include loss of control and an altered and heightened relationship to the passage of time.
