Opening Reception on Friday, June 15, 5-7pm

Memory Palaces is a convergence of Homer, Joyce, and Google, along with decades of personal journal entries that artist/writer Lane Hall has mined with the intention of telling stories about memory and forgetting. Memory Palaces interconnects cognitive theory and historically derived memory models. Senility, narcotics, psychotropic drugs and the spirit-world are invoked as meditations upon oblivion, while writing itself is posed as a means for fixing memory to imperfect maps.


The Memory Palace is a mnemonic model which consists of interconnected rooms subtitled Lotus Eaters, Telemachiad, From A Moon With No Planets, Lost Wax, Ars Narcotica, and A Snake Men Fear To Touch. See Memory Palaces as a web project

Remix
Large format digital print 
Lane Hall / Lisa Moline

Collaborative team Hall/Moline have taken the left-over panels of a previous outdoor mural project, sliced them in half, and re-mixed them for their current project at Woodland Pattern Book Center. The imagery highlights creatures that are common to the Wisconsin backyard urban and park environment, and the process highlights the environmental ethos of "re-use and recycle." 

Remix is made possible by the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art and by Woodland Pattern.
