LANGUAGE ARTS The cliché asserts that a picture can be worth a thousand words, but one word can trigger a multitude of thoughts, memories and emotions. In the exhibit Words to Live By at Blackbird Studios, artists Vivian Martian, Gina Alverson and Kris Krainock use words to create works that take of in unexpected directions—even when literally rendered. ¶ In one piece, Martian uses the word yuputka, from Nicaragua's Ulwa language, to create a black-and-white photograph of a subject with strategically placed cicada shells on his face. The word, she says, translates to "the phantom sensation of something crawling on your skin." The transparent cicada shells, emitting a ghostlike presence, play of the idea of phantom (a word within a phrase describing a word). And Martian uses the Inuit word iktsuarpok as her inspiration to create a more personal and narrative piece, also in black and white. ¶ In addition to photography, the exhibit includes paintings, drawings, ilm, installations and live performance. Or, as Blackbird describes it: "a ierce collaboration of words and actions in an unprecedented multimedia art show that explores the words that most inspire and provoke." –Kristen Peterson WORDS TO LIVE BY September 4, 69 p.m. & September 5, 611 p.m. Blackbird Stu- dios, 7027820319. > WORD PLAY Vivian Martian's work is on display in September at Blackbird Studio.
