Exhibition Opening May 3rd, "Useless, useless."

Jeremiah Langsjoen:
The 'you are not a dinosaur' photography collective's 3rd exhibition opens May 3rd at the California Building in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Images from around the world were selected from the 17,000+ photographs in our ancillary flickr group. "Useless, useless" is an exhibition that reveals the merit and dignity of our trivial daily doings. At a friend's memorial service last year, these last words of Lincoln's assassin came to mind when I saw starkly how much her one life had affected so many. It staggered me to consider Booth's inability to recognize how a single hateful act can galvanize so many differences and generate persistent conflict. The "better angels of our nature" have a comparable capacity to accomplish conflict's opposite- resolution, even harmony. The works we'll share assert the value of things near to us that may seem ordinary, but that hold vast potential to positively impact the people we love, and the communities we belong to. Nothing we do should ever be diminished or derided as useless. T.W. 5.1.2013 "
