Exactly What I Want is an uncommon exhibition illuminating the process of creating art by displaying work actively in development. Through traditional silver gelatin photographic prints, enlarged images, and contact sheets Alport shows her path as she explores on-site various combinations of image and text. Of her work she says, "I'm presenting these pieces to show how I actually see my own work, as both a continual process and on-going search for that one perfect piece. I'm using this exhibit as a temporary stopping place to find, along with the viewer, points of interconnectedness to move the work forward." The environment Alport builds in the gallery illustrates her way of seeing, allowing viewers to experience for themselves how one visual artist proceeds.
