Miles From Digital 

In attempting to get out from under the press of technology that makes capturing images easier, more precise and perhaps a little more sterile, the two artists at 1708 Gallery this month turn to old methods or abandon the camera altogether. Alyssa C. Salomon's "Believing Is Seeing" uses daguerreotype, cyanotype and salted prints to play with the idea of perception — presenting a blue-tinted world of trees, buildings and people in water, as in "Winter," left. Sometimes they stand alone; sometimes they're paired with text. It's up to the viewer to decide, in that twilight of the subconscious, how to process it. Ted Victoria's "Images in Light" relies on the projection of images onto mirrors to overlap multiple ideas into one, as in "Arson," distorting scale and denying the viewer the concreteness of something that might come out of a digital camera. Both shows open with a reception Friday, June 2, 7-10 p.m., and run through June 28. 643-1708. S
