Journeyings

The photograph’s first stop on its journey occurs in the middle of America, in Wichita KS at the home/work spaces of Holly Suzanne and Nathan FilbertEkphrastix Arts.  We were happy to welcome the photograph from its creator, Emily Hughes,  as it begins its journey throughout the world as an ekphrastic object – traveling from artist to artist to inspire work and alter as a work in itself through posting, handling, and use (follow its life or join in its progress at Journey of a Photograph).

Here is what our hands and minds have made with/of it…Holly worked with encaustic and mixed media to create the collaged pieces, and I worked with paper and pen and then personal computer to create the texts that accompany.  The first image is a copy of the photograph from Emily.

  1. I think it’s going to be very interesting to see the variety of responses to this photo and its journey. It has already changed so much and a new layer of meaning added… challenging!

  2. Holly and Nathan I really love what you have done with this! The words, the layers, it’s fabulous. I shall spend more time looking at this tonight. The music is just beautiful too.
