Lynne Heller (MFA 2004)
On the one hand, there are our dreams, projections and yearnings, on the other reality. And in between there is a gap — one filled with odd juxtapositions, quirky beauty and endearing ugliness. My current work reflects my interest in exploring that terrain utilizing sound, image, and communication technologies to address the disconnect between our desires and the concrete manifestations of those realities. Considerations of the role of beauty are critical to the work. It is through both familiar and startling beauty that I feel I can touch a nerve. I want to engage the mind and evoke the humour and pathos of the human condition.
