"Out of the Embers" by Allison Hyde

Using experimental printmaking, mixed media and sculpture, Allison Hyde's work seeks to explore ephemeral moments, and our notion of emotional loss associated with personal pasts. By splitting video sequences into still photos and recreating the images via printmaking she examines the subtleties of fleeting moments and the nostalgia related to recollections of memories. As muffled voices emanate from the charred confines of small boxes in Out of the Embers, the viewer is allowed a private moment to hear lists of other people's most important possessions -- allowing reflection upon the potential significance and emotional triggering effects that objects have in our lives.
