The Lens Lab
Wednesdays–Sundays, 1:00–5:00 p.m.
Genevieve Quick explores the history and wonder of early telescopes, Victorian projectors, photography, and space-age satellites and telescopes. For her residency, Quick invites the public to interact with her hand-fabricated cameras, constructed from styrene and modified to alter the photographer’s vision. While some of her cameras explore peripheral and periscopic sight, others feature a rotating wheel of lenses and colored gels or a handmade faceted lens. Although her contraptions sound complex, Quick produces her effects with simple mirrors, lenses, colored gels, and other materials not normally associated with optics or photography, such as bubble wrap and acrylic rods. Participants are invited to explore and use her modified cameras to photograph the museum and its grounds. The resulting photographs will be printed and displayed in the gallery as part of the project.
Saturday, December 10, 3:00–5:00 p.m.
Opening reception in the Kimball Gallery: Celebrate the residency of Genevieve Quick with light refreshments and live music.
