The pinhole images and assemblages in "on deaf ears" are a collaboration between Eric Renner and Nancy Spencer. Twenty years ago, we began constructing assemblages, many of which dealt with social issues of human rights, religion, sexuality, and stereotypes. On a lighter note, we also made assemblages dealing with Mickey Mouse, Elvis, Marilyn, and our own relationship. Our assemblages have been greatly influenced by passages in "The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets" by Barbara G. Walker.
This body of work is on-going. We continue to build assemblages; some of them we photograph.
