Elizabeth's part of the show consists of 14 images printed on aluminum by dye sublimation. Each is 20 inches by 30 inches.

Artist's Statement

Thus shall you think of all this fleeting world:
A star at dawn, a bubble in a stream;
A flash of lightning in a summer cloud,
A flickering lamp, a phantom, and a dream.

-- Buddha in The Diamond Sutra

Hugh's contribution includes an 11 minute video of portraits of 70-odd imaginary personalities, and 7 mirrored images printed on satin.

Artist's Statement

Photography is usually considered a REALISTIC and documentary medium,
one which captures the world as it is, encapsulates memory,
and reflects the photographer's notions of truth and beauty.

My work in this show explores the IMAGINARY,
inviting the viewer to see, in bits of stone and wood and ice,
forms and personages which are figments, projections, wills o' the wisp,
conceits conjured into being by the mind.

"That looks like..." is a sort of mimetic perception and visual play
that has enlivened more than a million years of human evolution,
seems to be a universal and uniquely human capability,
and is in fact the very basis of art.
