A Conversation with Jason Salavon

Jason Salavon’s photographic construction, One Week Skin (ESPN-Vs), 2012, is currently on view in the permanent collection installation of photography WHEN? A Brief History of the Relationship between Time and Photography. Salavon works with photography and video coupled with software processes of his own design to produce a complexly simplified experience of the visually challenging accumulations of everyday experience. His work often unearths unexpected visual patterns and random aesthetic harmonies as he explores the relationships between the part and the whole and the individual and the group.

In his conversation with William and Sarah Ross Soter Curator of Photography, Tim B. Wride, the artist will address his interests in the intersections of art and technology, his ability to reconcile the two, and the possibilities that the two in tandem offer him as an artist.
