ABOUT THE EXHIBITION
“Synthesis” is a two-person exhibition that takes on two
distinctly different forms of collage work. The Collective Glitch
investigates the idea of a collective image. Each is digitally created
by utilizing photographs provided by “a collective.” The collective is
comprised of 15 individuals from ages 20-70 from different geographic
locations and socio-economic backgrounds. Tyree’s newest work utilizes
millennial tweets letterpress printed by hand. She combines new
communication with old technology. Together these works create a
synthesis that transcends time and culture.
