Archetypal Healing PlacesArchetypal Healing Places
Anthony Lawlor
 
For thousands of years, every culture around the world has created healing places. Archetypal forms such as portals, paths and places have been employed to cure illness and revitalize wholeness. These images in this exhibit of photographs and illustrations depict the primal blueprints of environments that many cultures have used for releasing disease, restoring health, and reconnecting with the renewing web of living.

Anthony Lawlor is an architect and author whose work focuses on the relationship between design and consciousness. His books include The Temple In The House and A Home For The Soul. He has received awards for excellence in design from the American Institute of Architects and Interior Design Magazine.

Spirit FleshSpirit in Flesh
R. Lane Clark
 
Lane Clark’s paintings grow out of a dance between imagination and the play of natural forces, such as oxidation and flow on the textures and atmospheres. The abstract results evoke the intersection between the spiritual and physical realms. The photographic works arise from similar concerns through a different process. In these images, the artist seeks to evoke the spirit realm and human archetypes. They are meditations on our relationship with the earth, the psyche, and with technology.

R. Lane Clark, BFA, has explored and exhibited work in a variety of mediums, producing paintings, photography, documentary videos, projected theater sets, and works in clay. He teaches painting, documentary, and general arts in a variety of settings. Lane Clark is art director of the Santa Barbara Healing Sanctuary.

MirrorboxThe Mirrorbox Project
Megan May Daalder
 
The Mirrorbox is a participatory installation and ongoing research project exploring states of temporary shared identity. Inside the Mirrorbox two participants are confronted with a shifting image
of their combined reflection while standing a foot away from one another. The installation was developed after the discovery of a unique psychological phenomenon and has since been studied in various environments across three countries.

Megan May Daalder, BA, is an instigator of social experiments and a self-styled guinea pig. She recently exhibited her Mirrorbox project in Paris and Poland, curated a live video-performance exhibition in Los Angeles, and produced, shot, and co-wrote a full-length documentary about the Internet generation for Dutch television.
