In April 2009, NEW – Non Traditional Employment for Women; a well known organisation that teaches and provides a support system to women trades workers inNew York City graciously invited me to show these films at their Alumni Event.
That day, I made a small installation of images in the NEW workshop in Brooklyn, they had organised food and everyone watched the ‘video conversations’.
Once the women watched the ‘video conversations’. A powerful discourse ensued.
Here the power of photography was revealed to the many participants, organisers and the artist for the first time.
There is no record of this final discourse because I am interested in shifting the paradigm of the dissemination of the image
The Archaic Paragdim: The photographer — to —-> print publication —-to—-> archive —to—-> locked in space and time module.
Cross Cultural Paradigm: The photographer —-to—-> darkroom —to—> subject/community dispersing into small bits and finally recording only in the consciousness module.
