    NASHVILLE METRO ARCHIVES 2019 ARTIST IN RESIDENCE

    TIME OUT OF MIND
    New Nashville Nostalgia

    A video art work that explores the psychology of change, nostalgia, and relational memory amid rapid change in Nashville using drones, archival film, and sound art. Brian Siskind 2019 Artist in Residence - Metro Nashville Archives / Nashville Public Library In cooperation with Fort Negley.

    The opening event was August 3 from 6pm at Fort Negley as part of the Wedgewood-Houston Art Crawl. This year marks Metro Archives’ first Artist in Residence Program in partnership with Fort Negley and the Nashville Public Library.

    This unique project seeks to break down the walls between community and archives, to re-define the role of artist and archivist, and to bring archival collections beyond the walls of the archive and into our public spaces. The piece will run in the Fort Negley Gallery through the month of August 2019. This project is generously funded by the Nashville Public Library with support from the Nashville Library Foundation.

    "Brian's efforts to document Nashville's endangered historic places with the use of a drone and music is ingenious and aligns perfectly with Historic Nashville's mission. We are so appreciative that Brian creates these stunning videos that show images of historic places that are often overlooked, unknown, and cannot be viewed from the street. The aerial views are important for not only documentation and education, but also for inspiring action and advocacy. Brian's creative work is helping promote and preserve the historic places that make Nashville unique, and for that we are truly grateful."

    "As the Metro Council person for District 20, I've been fortunate enough to be able to utilize Brian's creative drone work to visually document the changes in our community. It has given us a broader perspective on growth with his beautifully produced video series, but also has given our community positive media exposure. His drone coverage has even helped us advocate for getting thousands of trees planted in our district!"

    Brian Siskind

    I have 25 years of professional creative work in realms from media production, music production, fine art photography, documentary film, new media, technology, and marketing as a Creative Director.

     

    My independent film projects are immersed often in abandoned, forgotten places, and endangered historic properties. I also tell the stories of people in relation to place.

     

    I see endless potential to use drones for artistic and commercial projects that expand perceptions - and for social good. Being a longtime music artist and visual artist, makes for an ideal marriage of the visual with the sonic.

     

    I constantly wonder - what Mark Rothko would do with a flying camera? - or Franz Kline, Robert Motherwell, Barnett Newman, Yves Klein, James Turrell, Georgia O'Keeffe, Harry Callahan, Aaron Siskind, Alfred Stieglitz, or Weegie? This consumes me.

    I live to make things.
