Statement from the Artist:
Nancy Floyd uses photography and video to address the ways in which lens-based media can connect deeply with experience and memory. “Weathering Time” (1982 – present) is a series of self-portraits that chronicles her youth to old age while also underscoring the cultural, technological and physical changes that have occurred over the past 36 years.
