Artist statement: Because you may never visit DeLand, we wanted to bring DeLand to you. This is a place as circular as a view-master reel. Everything spreads all the time, inside and out. The woman who passes by your house every day at noon might actually be a ghost. Bright colors, many greens, the world is not as it seems.
Madison Creech works with digital arts and Teresa Carmody works with sentences. For this project, we conferred about the ever-present death and growth of Central Florida, before walking our separate ways around DeLand to make seven images (Creech) and seven sentences (Carmody). Later, we paired the images with the text, almost exactly in the order that we presented them to each other.
