Stefani Byrd + Wes Eastin: Slow Cadence
Columbus Museum
Featuring work by: Stefani Byrd, Wes Eastin

Exhibition: Sun, Jul 31, to Sun, Jan 1 2012

The Columbus Museum presents a multi-media exhibition consisting of three photo and video installations that explore how ways of speaking affect people’s lives and the changing relationship between Southerners and the land.

One segment focuses on the effect accents have on our interpretation of the spoken word. A classically trained actor recites a short segment from William Shakespeare’s play Romeo and Juliet. The same segment will be recited using various regional American and international accents to see how the accents effect the way we evaluate the words.

A bank of TVs will feature stories from people living in the region recounting their personal experiences with accents and how it has impacted their life.

A video will take a cinematic view at the relationship that southern natives have with the land and visually connect the slower pace of rural life with the slower way of speaking. Slow Cadence is the debut solo exhibition of Atlanta residents and video artists Stefani Byrd and Wes Eastin (American, both b. 1984).
