"The stress, the chaos, and the need to simultaneously escape and connect are issues that I investigate in this body of work. We live in a culture where we are both 'child centered' and 'self-obsessed.' The struggle between living in the moment versus escaping to another reality is intense since these two opposites strive to dominate." –Julie Blackmon

Introductory presentation by SFAI visiting faculty and alumnus Rocky McCorkle.
