Carolyn Marks Blackwood The Story Series
March 10–May 12, 2024
With large-scale and mysterious photographs, screenwriter
and film producer Carolyn Marks Blackwood invites the
viewer to participate in the creation of meaning. By
associating brief caption lines with images of deserted
streets, isolated forests, and houses lit from within, visitors
are encouraged to supply their own narrative inspired by
their unique experiences. Both haunting and profound, The
Story Series provides an opportunity for creative engagement
and deep reflection.
