The exhibition, Persistence of Vision, by local artist Colleen Woolpert presents work in photography, video, and
interactive objects and installations that originated with the artist’s
experience working with visually impaired adults in Seattle in 2013. Questions
about visualization and navigating through darkness spurned ideas related to
the “the great unknown” and space exploration. When an artist residency brought
Woolpert to Syracuse in January 2014, the thread continued as an investigation
of early motion picture innovations of the late 1800s in Syracuse, and
ultimately the invention of her own optical device. The
flicker of one image displacing the next is the persistent blink of light upon
Storer AuditoriumThursday, April 9, 20155:30 p.m. - 6:30 p.m., followed by a reception at the Gallery until 7:30 p.m.
Woolpert had a fascination with the pre-cinema device known as the Mutoscope
(1894) before she moved to Syracuse and rented a photography studio at the Gear
Factory on the Near Westside. One day she discovered that the Mutoscope was
invented in Syracuse, in fact on the site where her studio was located.
Incredulous, she researched the facts and uncovered an inspiring story of four
creative minds that made Syracuse a part of film history lore, fighting the
odds (and Thomas Edison) to bring pictures to life.
