From Jospeh Desler Costa’s “Letter to the Editor” for the Humble Arts Foundation blog:
[My exhibition at ClampArt] “Dream Date” at its simplest, is about releasing otherwise unseen potential in objects and memories. It’s about making a picture that maybe no one else recognizes as significant and deciding it’s significant. Maybe this is what photography and art have always done. They decide what’s important, what can be special, and what has potential. Making these pictures allowed me to imagine and attempt to picture dream scenarios—my dream date, my idealized version of a thing, of anything, of a memory.
