Homegrown Stories -- Online Video Project

Homegrown Stories is an online media project that began June 2013 but is informed by over two decades of media work by the two collaborating artists LeAnn Erickson and Sandy Dyas.  Each of the artists has a deep commitment to the aesthetics of still photography as it applies to the moving image as well as an intellectual interest in questions of personal space, the act of storytelling and the primacy of place in shaping one’s world view.
Embracing a one-shot aesthetic, the project is designed as a ‘conversation’ between collaborators, with each new posting inspired by the previous post. Using ‘pocket’ technology, such as smart phones and point-and-shoot cameras, the project seeks to capitalize on the serendipitous results of spontaneous interaction with one’s environment.
In 2015 the artists expanded the project to include invited artists.  Using a prompt, collaborators explore the parameters and push the boundaries of a chosen concept.
