Michael Huey '87
Major at Amherst: German
Current Job Title: Artist
Artist Web site(s): http://www.michaelhuey.com
Type of Art: Mixed Media; Photography; Sculpture; Film
Artist Statement: I consider my work a collaboration with the past. It takes up basic questions 
like "What is an 'original' work of art?" How does time change what we see?  Can something exist unknown to its originator in a photograph or object that is later "discovered" and "released" by the artist? Ultimately the work 
addresses questions of possession: who owns what (and what additional layers of meaning may be left through this ownership); what can, in the end, really be owned. The camera itself "takes" an existing object as its image and I try - through the re-use of existing and found materials - to carry this "taking" a philosophical step further.
