Journey of “Home”

Posted by:

By Jessica F. K. Lambert

The journey of “Home” has always been a part of my art-making.  Understanding the meaning behind symbols of our daily lives, the personal nuances that are attached—these are the histories we truly understand and know because we create them.  We weave our journey “Home” as we have created it throughout our lives.  As part of a community, these personal parts make the whole, and it is this whole community, “Home”, that we are trying to understand ...

 We approached Voices in the Corridor with a very open mind as to the type of artwork we might produce. We knew we wanted our first project to be a Public Art Project, continuing the conversation about art and culture onto the streets of Redmond.

Rough edges of art…

Posted by:

By Jessica F. K. Lambert

Working on Voices in the Corridor has been so revealing to me and how intricately weaved are my process and my art. I believe in beauty and I think I see it in the roughest places. I see the beauty in the roughness of unedited video, I see it in stumbling through interviews that capture gems of moments amidst the awkwardness of passing the mic. It is all a process and its foibles are part of ...

One Redmond, Many Voices

Posted by:

One Redmond, Many Voices

By Kelly Davio

Many artist—perhaps even all artists, in their own ways—engage with the concept
of home. It’s not difficult to see why; home more than a physical place. It’s an
inescapable pull that influences every part of our lives as individuals, as families,
and as communities. What’s far more rare than an artist or a writer considering the
idea of home is for one’s home—in this case, our hometown of Redmond—to engage
with the concept of the arts.

With the Voices ...

Emerging

Posted by:

By Jacqueline Calladine

Sitting down to watch the interviews Jessica and I carried out, I have my finger hovering over the fast forward icon – I really don’t like watching myself on camera!  I listen attentively to the replies given to our questions, “How would you describe the art and culture scene of Redmond?”

 “Becoming”

“Emerging”

“Regulated”

“Wanting to be more than it is”

I think about how I can embody in my work that sense of flux ...
