collectedvisions.net, Lorie Novak in collaboration with Clilly Castiglia, Betsey Kershaw, and Kerry O’Neill, 1996-ongoing
Approximately 3,000 images collected from over 300 people are in a searchable archive of family snapshots. More than 300 photo essays exploring how photographs shape our memories are posted in the CV Gallery, the CV Museum, and Positive Visions. Visitors can contribute stories and photographs or create essays inspired by images in the archive. Launched in 1996, Collected Visions was one of the earliest storytelling websites.
A second component of the project is Collected Visions, a computer-based installation with music by Elizabeth Brown.
