Collective

By Carlos Pacheco on Mar 13, 2014

Carlos Pacheco, graduate student in Photography + Integrated Media at Ohio University, will exhibit his work titled Collective at the Ohio University. The exhibition is a new media installation that invites the viewer to witness the formation of a single, collective memory. Pacheco makes books and videos using images made from live webcams overlooking culturally significant locations around the world, like Times Square, Dealey Plaza, and Abbey Road. This narrative investigates our use of photography in an increasingly digital and interconnected world, at the same time bridging the gap between the seemingly unrelated events that unfold at these sites. The show opens Tuesday March 11th and closes March 14th with a reception Friday March 14th from 6pm – 8pm. Can’t be there in-person?

Obstructed

Obstructed is a series of live abstractions recorded from live webcams in which various environmental factors and the camera’s own mechanisms disrupt the camera’s function as a tool that aids in global voyeurism. http://www.carlosrenepacheco.com/obstructed.html  

The Artist.The City

By on Sep 25, 2013

For my project I am doing a short documentary on the art coordinator of the Art Corner Toledo Rachel Richardson. I am exploring this avenue of who she is and how she not only impacts the city of city -specifically the uptown and downtown Toledo – and how the city impacts her.

So I needed an artist who is local and connected to the city whereas you couldn’t get from a celebrity artist who all live in NYC and where not born or raised there. While Rachel does not produce art works her role in the art community is just as significant I my desire is to highlight that role.  

Corrupted

By Carlos Pacheco on Sep 4, 2013

Corrupted, is a series of distorted photo albums. With the advent of digital technology came a de-materialization not only of ourselves but of the photographic medium. The photo album, which in the past was exclusively a physical object shared among friends and family, has been mostly replaced by virtual means of sharing through social media and online photo-streams. The physical albums in this series, all specifically purchased through online auction sites are relics of a pre-virtual era filtered through this digital realm. Obtaining these memories no longer requires physical human interaction; they are obtained anonymously under the guise of a screen name. There is no physical transaction, no physical monies traded for these objects. A few clicks of a mouse and these objects are sent and received not unlike digital files via the internet. . In their final state, these new...

Transmission

By Carlos Pacheco on Oct 26, 2012

Transmission, is an installation that employs the viewers own curiosity in an exploration of self-awareness and the viral transfer of information via the act of sending information from one location to another by means of a wireless broadcast, but also through the control of information, a transference of power, in the form of sight, through a simple, hand-to-hand transaction. Currently on display in the Ohio Univeristy Art Gallery, on the 5th floor of Seigfred Hall, in Athens, Ohio as part of the second year graduate exhibition, Merges and Dissolves.
