Emily Metzguer – Still Moving


The following are six pieces from Emily Metzguer‘s upcoming show, Still Moving. The opening is tomorrow night (the 30th) at Desoto Row in Savannah, GA. You should really try and make it – I had the honor of seeing this project in its early stages while I was finishing up my degree at SCAD, and it really is best in person.

However, I know many of you are not local to the south eastern USA, so I’m attempting to do something new here – lets see if embedding this content directly works. After the work, there’s the artist statement. It’s simple, and it’s not new – but it’s work that works. It’s relevant. I’m a big fan.

These really should be looping, but I’ve already had to wade through too much code for one night just to get them up there. Check out more on her site.

Artist statement, simple and to the point:

Advances in technology have changed the ways we share information. I don’t believe that still imagery will ever become obsolete, however the power that a singular frame commands has diminished greatly over the past decade. The sheer volume of imagery streaming from media, entertainment, and interactive industries has hindered our ability to be captivated by what we see. I just want people to be still with an image; therefore I had to make it move.
