Rebecca Quattrone stands in front of some photos from her latest exhibit titled "OZ" on display at York Arts "Out and About" exhibit.

When you enter into her latest piece of installation art titled "OZ", Rebecca Quattrone wants you to unburden your secrets and your desires and to become a part of the work. "We all have stories," she says, " we all have experiences, we all have desires and we all have secrets, and sometimes we need to unload those secrets; we need to unload those desires."

Visitors are encouraged to take pictures from disposable cameras Rebecca will have sitting around or to contribute words and thoughts of their own.

"I have envelopes that have the OZ sticker on them so they can write down anything they need me to take care of and put it in a sealed envelope that will stay at the exhibit until I break it down...The understanding is that those words will come up the next time around with OZ...but nobody will know who they are."

 

Rebecca Quattrone's "OZ" exhibit is now on display at York Art's "Out and About" exhibit through November 17th.
