Efflorescence by Shannon Amidon

Efflorescence is a series of lumen prints by Shannon Amidon
inspired by her interest in blending artistic renderings of nature and
old world photographic techniques. Camera-less images are created by
exposing botanical specimens and photographic paper to varying levels of
sunlight, time, and temperature, creating unique and ethereal images
that transcend the specimens’ natural color, shape, and form.

A companion ambient sound installation by Compartment organically
interprets pieces of Shannon Amidon’s Efflorescence series
resulting in musical vignettes that are sometimes alarming, sometimes
whimsical. Compartment will be present opening night performing a live
musical installation.
