Collaboration with Joshua A. McDevitt
Western Washington University, 2020
Friends for years, King and McDevitt have taken their vastly different practices with photography and art to explore universal themes of memory and nostalgia, and how their pasts influence their present. In this collaboration, Megan and Joshua take snapshots from their lives and combine them. Megan’s photographic process incorporates both photography and sewing, which they have used in this collaboration to create narratives about their concepts of memory. The addition of fibers, colors, and patterns create layers of nostalgia that parallel the qualities of the photographs. The images represent feelings that are intimate and calm, but also strange and melancholic.
