August 31 - October 15, 2004
One of SPACELab's first artists, Katarina Wong continued the tradition of innovation during her residency and exhibition at SPACES. Wong's installation, Still Center, August 31-October 15, 2004, involved a process of fingerprinting molded from dentist's minty alganen that she then transferred to wax. Fingerprints came from supporters of the Dalai Lama, and will travel internationally in "The Missing Peace: The Dalai Lama Portrait Project". Wong's residency took her all over Northeast Ohio connecting with various Buddhist communities, and sharing her vision and experiences with the public. She also participated in the panel discussion, "Out of the Lab: Artists Emerge", which offered artists' views on how to flourish after art school. Scott Sherer, Assistant Professor of Art History at Kent State University, wrote a critical essay on Wong's residency and work for the brochure.
