There is a Light That Never Goes Out Incident Report By Noelle Mason Using documents held in public archives Mason’s work takes as subject the collective trauma experienced though forensic photographic and written documentation. In this case the images and documents associated with the Columbine high school massacre and skydivers who have died. Using pin-hole camera photography and embroidery Mason remediates and reimagines the images and accompanying documents associated with this unfortunate incident to examine the way in which the photograph in concert with narrative shapes public consciousness. Through image, storytelling and document a far away tragedy can devolve into an unrelated individual’s autobiography. Death Drive By Noelle Mason Death Drive examines the aesthetics of public mourning rituals associated with the roadside memorial. By chronicling, recording, and re-contextualizing the ubiquitous roadside memorial Death Drive draws attention to the victims of efficiency and and the romantic obsession with the car.
