Michael Loderstedt: Dark Waters 


This photographic project examines Cleveland’s relationship with its boundary waters, specifically the city’s shorelines of Lake Erie and the Cuyahoga River. Historically, access to a plentiful supply of water for transportation and industrial needs, helped the city develop its economy at the expense of the environmental concerns for the health of the water, shoreline and sediments. The Cuyahoga River fires of the early 1970’s outraged and shamed city residents, sparking a national conversation on water quality that led to the enactment of the Clean Water Act.

Ten Degrees of Wikipedia

In the Fall of 2019, the Intermediate and Advanced Intaglio students in Professor J. Leigh Garcia’s class at Kent State University organized an exchange portfolio. The theme of this portfolio, “Ten Degrees of Wikipedia,” required each participant to begin on the “intaglio” web page of Wikipedia, then click a series of 9 hyperlinks to arrive at a prompt for their print.
