InLiquid presents The Shortest Distance Between 2 Points, which is a solo exhibition by InLiquid artist member Laura Krasnow. Her work blends art, science and technology to depict themes surrounding the intersection of time and place. Krasnow uses photography, and the embedded marks and symbols, to reconstruct recollections of time and place, specifically “the instant when time and place seem to merge to catch a moment.” Her images aim to force the viewer to look beyond the obvious and to reveal the essence beyond the normal visual spectrum. It is the “imperceptible connections” she seeks to define.

Krasnow, born in New York City, has lived and traveled throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, and Australia. In addition to being a freelance photographer, she has worked as an assistant editor in feature films, and been trained in film preservation and restoration. Her artwork has been exhibited throughout the United States and Europe, and is in the permanent collection of The Museum of Modern Art and The Brooklyn Museum. With a passion for art, science and technology, after obtaining an MFA at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, she returned to school to study math, physics and computer science. Krasnow has attended seminars at the Perimeter Institute of Theoretical Physics and the Centre for Brain and Mind in Canada.

The public hours for Crane Arts are noon – 6 pm, Wednesday – Saturday, and until 9 pm on the Second Thursday of each month.
