While taking a vacation from our physical selves is often an important part of our day, this work asks you to be present. The work in this show snaps us back into ourselves, into the space we share and transforms us from spectator to participant.

In a broader sense, when we physically engage with our environment, we tend to become more inquisitive, more socially engaged, and more aware of how our actions matter, affect the space around us inside and outside of the walls of the gallery. Simply using light and sound, these artists have turned the mundane into the extraordinary.

 

 

Layered Perspectives

Exhibit Dates: November 2-30, 2017
Opening Reception: November 2, 2017 | 5:30-7:30 p.m.

In this multiple exposure photography series, UCO New Media Faculty, David Webber, explores the idea of “making something out of nothing” in his photographs inspired by Alred Stieglitz’s cloud series, Equivalents. These photographs start with images from New Orleans, and through transformation, become hybrid forms, confusing boundaries of their reference. As viewers, we are challenged to look at this iconic cityscape from multiple and layered perspectives, like concrete clouds, and consider how the history of a city – it’s structure, population, and even tragedy – shapes our overall perception of place.

Synthesis (Re)Action: Aesthetics in the Arts and Sciences

Exhibit Dates: October 5-26, 2017
Opening Reception: October 5, 2017 | 5:30-7:30 p.m.

A synthesis reaction is a chemical reaction in which two or more simple substances combine to form a more complex product. In UCO Art faculty Elizabeth Brown’s work, we see the combination of the visual arts and sciences, the creation of works that mirror elements of existing organic life and combine synthetic and non-traditional materials to create a tension between the definable and the indefinable.
