SCORCH_posterSCORCH is a show of branded prints and cyanotypes by WID collaborator and Art Professor Tom Loeser. It features images captured using fire and sunlight as mark-making devices. Some of the images were branded directly onto paper using steel brands that were heated red-hot. The indigo blue images are cyanotypes – created using direct sunlight. The work in SCORCH was accomplished during residencies in Colorado and Illinois in 2014 and 2015.

Note: The artwork is displayed in the windows of the Image Lab and is viewable from the sidewalk 24/7.  The lab is only open to the public for special events.

WID’s Image Lab is a flexible, active work space dedicated to real-time creative activity to help encourage a different take on problem-solving. Led by Lynda Barry, discovery fellow, assistant professor and cartoonist, the lab hosts a variety of projects and people, emphasizing a hands-on approach to creating conditions for insight and discovery.
