Albin O. Kuhn Library Gallery

Media artist Cecelia Condit is an extraordinary contemporary storyteller, as well as an internationally acclaimed video artist who creates single channel and multi-channel videos and photo installations.

Condit will discuss her most recent series Within A Stone's Throw, a collection of large composite photographs, that plays on the unfolding of human existence in connection to geologic time, and probes the relationships that exist between ourselves and the natural world. The images, composed of many shots taken of the waters of Lake Michigan, create a sense of heightened reality and fantasy.

Condit is the Director of the Graduate Program in the Department of Film, Video, Animation and New Genres, at the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee.
