In an instant, the shadow of a flame becomes a new artwork. Lynn Speaker has developed a process of image making that utilizes gunpowder as a medium. The images are a record of an active event, capturing the residual effects released by the burning object.

Speaker received her Master of Fine Arts from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design and is a recipient of a 2007 Minnesota State Arts Board Artist Initiative Grant.

Her studio is located in the Historic Grain Belt Bottling House.
