- ItemDo You Know Where You Are?(2019) Dunklin, Clayton; Strom, Justin; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)Do You Know Where You Are? is an exhibition comprised of video installations, sculptural objects, and images. The following is an explanation of the theory and inspiration behind the work as well as descriptions of the pieces and text scripts from the videos. The exhibition itself is set up as a space of color, movement, and sound, that elicits a feeling of disorientation. The viewer navigates a cerebral interior that repositions my personal experience with medical imaging and contemporary image theory as a fragmented science fiction narrative.
- ItemHow Far Does the Grid Go?(2019) Pantelis, Irene Noemi; Richardson, William C; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)My artwork probes the connection between daily life and what I perceive as the larger grid out there—a mesh that entangles all peoples, beings and things, cuts across all time, and is always in flux. Drawing from my everyday life and experiences as a Latin American immigrant, I incorporate materials from my suburban home environment in my multidisciplinary approach. I create organic forms and grids that abstract, excavate, ground and find universal truths in the quotidian. They also serve as platforms for engaging obliquely with history, science, archeology, philosophy, and magic realism. My artwork invites viewers to reach interpretations based on their own associations, experiences, and feelings. It thus brings attention to the power of our imagination to infuse the material world, particularly nature, with fluid possibilities of meaning and subjectivity.
- ItemRural Decay Almanac(2016) Winkler, Dane; Sham, Foon; Art; Digital Repository at the University of Maryland; University of Maryland (College Park, Md.)Rural Decay Almanac is an exhibition comprised of sculptural objects and video/sound documentation. The following is an explanation of inspiration and personal history, a proposed schematic/manual for the objects in the gallery, and other contemporary artists I frame myself within. The front half of The Art Gallery at the University of Maryland as well as the atrium space directly outside the gallery hosts the work: four large scale Site-Responsive sculptural objects, and one video/sound loop projection. The library of materials comes from a farm site in Ijamsville, MD which has been re-purposed into the structures. As a sister work, the process of dismantling documentation is shown alongside the objects in a sound/video installation. The gallery space is transformed into a meticulously controlled environment via hard objects, sound, light, and video.
