Exhibitions Lost Color of God and Man by Matthew Gamber
June 25 – July 14, 2018 Project Space One
For his Project Space residency, Matthew Gamber intends to continue an ongoing project titled “Lost Color of God and Man,” an evolving slideshow of three-color separations related to the historical geography of the inventors of Kodachrome, Leopold Godowsky and Leopold Mannes. Shot in Rochester locations where the inventors worked on their early color film experiments, these images serve as a reenactment of the light that the inventors might have experienced. How did they see color before they created a means to replicate it, and how did they imagine their tools recorded it?
Gamber plans to create a series of prints of the overlapping images, and translate the slideshow into an artist book proposal for future publication.
Matthew Gamber (b. 1977) lives and works in Worcester, Massachusetts. He is an Assistant Professor in the Visual Arts Department at the College of the Holy Cross and a recipient of an Individual Photographer’s Fellowship from the Aaron Siskind Foundation.
Support for this project came from Joy of Giving Something and the New York State Council on the Arts Visual Arts program.
