For David Meyer, creating a tangible interpretation of memories becomes the dialogue between comprehension and experience. The exploration of memory and its distortion becomes a mediated process Meyer expresses through the transformation of photographic images into sculptures, and perforated "prints". The rhythm of patterns, akin to typesetting, Braille, newspaper print, pixilated imagery-- each holding a different image for each viewer -- referencing their own memory and reality.

Exhibited in the dramatic, iconic turn-of-the-century industrial space, now known as The Skybox at 2424 Studios in Fishtown- the interpretation of memory comes alive in its architecture, its bookmark in history, its version of the lives that have occupied its "sense of place."

Last Friday, WXPN's Michaela Majoun interviewed me about 2424 Studios for their fall arts preview.
They wrote about the interview:
A new cultural center which is being developed in an old factory in Fishtown. It has artist studios and community space built around a giant gallery/performance space at its heart. The inaugural exhibition starting at the end of October features the work of cutting edge New York sculptor Jason Heckenwerth, whose medium is balloons!
