Fieldwork Artist Talk: Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson

The Contemporary Austin presents artists, curators, and researchers in residence with Fieldwork: Marfa, an international researcher-in-residence program coordinated by ESBA Nantes Métropole and HEAD-Genève.

Melissa Dubbin and Aaron S. Davidson discuss their work producing forms, objects, images, and experiences and their research in Marfa. Attentive to the materializing of the immaterial—how to photograph temperature or wind, how to sculpt and photograph sound, how to formulate or make an image audible—since 1998, the artists have explored together the way time makes its mark and how objects can record, hold, and reveal embedded narratives.
