A Look Back at Photo+Sphere
The Photo+Sphere conference wrapped up a week ago after five days full of programming at the intersection of
photography and climate justice. The conference, organized by a team of artists and scientists, offered events
across town ranging from photography exhibitions to artist lectures and immersive visualizations of the cosmos.
Dot Editions is happy to have collaborated on several Photo+Sphere events
in helping scan, print, frame, and install work across town.
Some highlights from the weekend include The Cloud Library, Vol. 1 curated by P+S team member
Eric Baden, on view now at the Elizabeth Holden Gallery on the Warren Wilson College campus.
Baden and assistant curator Hayley Dunn organized a thorough examination of clouds in their
physical and conceptual manifestations, bringing together an international group of artists to present their work and explore questions about clarity, fog, archiving, and the camera’s ability to produce (or reproduce) these hazy forms.
On Friday, November 9th, RAMP Studios was host to a full evening of programming, from Revolve
Gallery’s Picturing Purity opening reception to Dot Edition’s first public exhibition of work at
The Gallery. The UNCA STEAM Studio also hosted a keynote address from Harvard
Professor of Photography and Ecology Sharon Harper and a screening of climate-focused
short films organized under the title Living in the Anthropocene Age.
It was a pleasure to participate in such an engaging slate of programming, and we were happy to see
a large turnout from the community. Now that Photo+Sphere has wrapped up,
we are excited to continue supporting and facilitating similar initiatives in the future.
