DURING THE DAY BUT MOSTLY AT NIGHT, Katelyn Kopenhaver Description from the artist: Thirty enigmatic pages commentating on the consumption, perceptions, information, predators, violence in the world and my own personal experience of things happening around me. How do I contend with the post-truth climate we reside in? Through language, photographs, and journal entries, I invite the viewer to enter my mind, as I reflect/introspect on this question and unveil these concepts. It is political as much as personal. I return to the scene of a crime, literally with my body, to bring back a glimpse for the viewer through image and language in order to help us make sense of evil, to shine a light on darkness, to encourage others to seek the truth. I have painstakingly collected a series of headlines from various sources over the past two years up until present day that depict scenes of a crime that have since been forgotten. These include events, names, quotes from victims, times, and dates. I connect these headlines to money and power—an adhesive for predators.
