    Exhibition in Ripon

    Last night I went to the opening of John Shimon's and Julie Lindemann's show "One Million Years is Three Seconds" at the Caestecker Wing for the Fine Arts at Ripon College, which is in Ripon Wisconsin. It's an interesting show with about 35 prints from large format negatives. Here's the brochure descriptive:

    "One Million Years Is Three Seconds is an experimental documentary about creation, order, and the lifelong accumulation of knowledge. The project makes intuitive connections between the domains of four Wisconsin men who avoided the homogeneity of American consumer culture. Our photographs are interspersed with pages torn from he social studies books of our youth. Twentieth-century technological developments and cultural and economic standards are questioned through this contextualiztion. The chaos and complexity of these lives lived appear at odds with the values and ideals established by the status quo. Evidence of millions of the small, quietly made choices are manifest in the men's surroundings and visible in the photographs. These worlds and pictures were collected during our ongoing visits with the men, and are presented here as a work in progress."
