Flash Forward Incubator 2018

The theme for this year’s Flash Forward Incubator Program is Cut and Paste. This year’s theme asks that our students think deeply about the meaning of cut and paste; from the creation of collage: physically cutting and pasting images together, to the ease with which we are able to reposition images and ideas using the cut and paste features on a computer, to how we can re-configure meaning with the addition or removal of objects, ideas, or images within a natural setting. What impact does the cut have? What is the impact of the paste?

This year’s Flash Forward Incubator Program is open to a wide range of photography based projects that explore the theme of cut and paste: the impact of cut and paste in our world today, the role that it has played in the history of art, and the social and psychological impact that a cut and paste world proposes.

The Magenta Foundation gratefully acknowledges the support of TD Bank Group for their ongoing commitment to Flash Forward and to emerging artists.
