Rebecca Zeiss (BFA 1979)
My work investigates memories and dreams often within a domestic environment. This image is part of a body of work which I invite the sitter to bring objects they have a memory relationship with and collaboratively we invent the our composition. The camera used for this work is an antique view camera and the method is an antiquarian process using wet plate collodion on an aluminum lacquered surface.
This work is featured as part of Future Former: An Exhibition of Alumni Work. This exhibition honors the creative work and careers of all Stamps School alumni, creates an aspirational connection between generations of U-M artists and designers and current Stamps students, and inspires reflection during the university's Bicentennial year.
