Students: We want your photos of life at Tyler

Author: Hillel Hoffmann

The Tyler School of Art is embarking on a major re-design of its admissions viewbooks, the publications used by prospective students searching for the right college, and this time the school will experiment with a new source for photography: Tyler students. Starting after Spring Break, Tyler is asking all of its students, undergraduate and graduate, to share their best images of the Tyler experience, including scenes of the creative process, classrooms and studios, student life, student-teacher interactions, exhibitions and installations, museum and gallery visits, critiques, research in the field, facilities, social events, technology, spontaneous gatherings and more. “The people who really understand what’s great about Tyler are our students, and we can’t think of anyone with could do a better job of capturing that with the authenticity and the skill that we need,” said Tyler staff member Olivia Menta, BFA ’14, who is managing the viewbook project.

Professor Byron Wolfe’s Phantom Skies book just released

Author: Yang Shan Chou

Professor Byron Wolfe's most recent book Phantom Skies and Shifting Ground: Landscape, Culture, and Rephotography of Eadweard Muybridge's Illustrations of Central America has just been released. Phantom Skies is a collaborative research project and publication (print and online) that responds to the largely unknown 19th-century photographs of Central America by Eadweard Muybridge. The photographs are significant as a benchmark for one of the largest and earliest bodies of photographic representation in Central America. The sometimes dark and moody pictures were taken during a two-year expedition immediately following Muybridge's involvement in a scandalous murder trial. Guided by Muybridge's sophisticated but problematic combination prints that merge multiple negatives into seamless views, photographer Byron Wolfe and cultural geographer Dr. Read More

Visiting Artist: Jonathon Wells

Author: Maggie Flanigan

Guest artist, Jonathon Wells, will be giving a lecture in the Photo Lighting studio on on Thursday, February 23, starting at 5:45 (light refreshments first, and we’ll start at 6:00). Jonathon Wells is a geologist who made a mid-career detour to become an artist (and now he has two careers). He makes photo-geologic composites that are part map, part photograph, part visualization of a world that’s normally inaccessible and wholly invisible. I find them fascinating in and of themselves, but they also serve as a starting point for an investigation into what’s happening in the world of energy extraction and fracking. Read More

Natalie W. Cheung: "Facsimile" and More

Author: Kylie Doyle

Some would say that there is no such thing as a mistake in art. Others would say that mistakes are what does make art. And still others will say that certainly, mistakes exist, but not in the way that they are irreversible negative blotches on an otherwise perfect work. Artists like Natalie Cheung take a far more unique approach to the imperfections that exist both in artwork and in human existence, building off of these otherwise dismissed happenstances.  Where does she glean her inspiration from? “Imperfections or “mistakes” that happen during the process of making art. Patterns that occur in nature. The beginnings of photography,” she says. Read More

Art & Technology Group: Reconstructing the View

Author: Rashida Ng

Reconstructing the View is a collaboration between Byron Wolfe (Tyler faculty) and Mark Klett. Using landscape photography to reflect on broader notions of culture, the passage of time, and the construction of perception, the two artists spent five years exploring the Grand Canyon. The team’s results are based on the practice of rephotography, in which they identify sites of historic representations and make new photographs of those precise locations. Read More
