10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

By Megan Mitchell. Fences, doors and windows indicate an intersection between inside and outside, public and private. These porous boundaries provide enclosure while also allowing access to an outside world. I am drawn to these divisions in space both as aesthetic and metaphorical objects. They are the point of departure for an exploration of the intersection between real and imagined worlds. 'Landscape and Lace: Cache Valley' juxtaposes the structural framework of a fence with a landscape inspired by Cache Valley. My intention is to provide a sense of both containment and spaciousness. The piece also contains a decorative element which is derived from a sample of lace. I use this pattern to further the dialog between inner and outer spaces.

10:00 am - 5:00 pm    Good Neighbors

Arts & Entertainment / Caine College of the Arts

Good Neighbors by Todd Hayes features a seven-foot-tall wooden fence enclosing a seven-by-twelve foot plot. After a futile search for a gate, viewers peer through the small slit openings & spy a small porcelain house standing in a yard comprised of salt. The house is a mid-century ranch style house, exactly the kind that sprang up in suburban developments around the country after World War II. Though good fences may make good neighbors—as the saying goes—this fence completely cuts off any relationship to the outside world.

11:30 am - 12:45 pm    Ambiguous Loss

Presentation/Speeches / Family, Consumer and Human Development

Presented by Dr. Pauline Boss. Ambiguous loss is a loss that remains unclear. It can last for years, even a lifetime. A loved one goes missing physically (as in war) or psychologically (as with dementia). The incongruence between absence and presence creates a relational rupture that has no closure. Yet, people can and do live well despite such complicated loss and grief. The goal is family resiliency. Toward that end, Dr Boss discusses the psychological family and provides therapeutic guidelines for how to live with ambiguous loss. These concern meaning, mastery, identity, ambivalence, attachment, and hope. She lectures to interdisciplinary audiences and trains professionals around the world, all of whom are working with some kind of loss that has no closure.
