Earthbound Moon: 2015 Projects
2015 promises to be a busy year for Earthbound Moon (EbM) with a planned installation in Moffat, Colorado by Los Angeles based artist William Leavitt, and the beginning of EbM's Rural to International Museum Exchange, or RIME. For RIME, EbM will be partnering with local historical societies and museums to create a network of traveling exhibitions between the organizations. As with our art installations, these exhibits will be a way to facilitate conversations and exchanging of stories between disparate communities.

parallax: an apparent change in the direction of an object, caused by a change in observational position that provides a new line of sight […from Greek parallaxis, from parallassein, to change] American Heritage Dictionary
Whether by photographing environments they have constructed, or through deconstructing and reworking photographs they have taken, all the artists included here offer the viewer a "new line of sight". Faced with the contemporary overload of images, these artists have altered, blended, and re-mixed in order to offer revitalizing views of the world. In contrast with straight photography, each of these works show evidence of some kind of modification – occuring either before or after the image capture.
Seen as a group, these artists' works offer a multifaceted vision of our time, a map with an array of possible routes toward some understanding of the abundance we face: a collection of parallax views.
