Wk. 11 – Artist Conversation – Nichole Borgo

Nichole Borgo is a student at Cal State Long Beach and is trying to earn her BFA in Ceramics.  In her art for this gallery she’s creating a type of memory map that deals with the fickle and fleeting nature and explores ways of preserving them.  She likes to get an old photograph and put it on a clay model to try and represent the deteriorating memory and the permanence of the photograph and the connection with both the fragility and strength that is found in the ceramic object.  She also connects these photos and the ceramics with wire to show the connection between the moments in time and to sometimes show a form of energy.
