Robin Lasser: Excerpts from a Portfolio

by Richard Whittaker, Sep 18, 1998


 

 

In the last issue of The Secret Alameda (#8 - 1994) we published a portfolio of Robin Lasser's photographs from her Consuming Landscaptes Series. The utensils (8' high) are part of larger installations. The "place settings" are meant to remind us of the inevitable self-destruction of our unchecked consumption. The "place" of these place settings is the planet earth - literally the ground of our own existence. 

Lasser teaches in the Art Department at San Jose State University.
