by Tom Bamberger is an epic, three-screen narrative of silent images. With decades of experience as a photographer and curator, Bamberger has lovingly assembled and sequenced over 6,000 images at just the right speed to induce memories of past events, people, and places. Some images are familiar and others are not, inviting the viewer to make connections that likely hadn’t been made before. OK
is simultaneously reflective and stimulating, representative of the fact that we live in an image-saturated world. All of this visual stimulus is stored in our subconscious and Bamberger’s work eloquently helps us make sense of it.
