Or the Sea: Experiments in New Media
Curated by Stephen Galloway
April 4 through May 11, 2013, University Library Art Gallery
This exhibition features works by SSU art students as part of the Arts 498: New Media course. Using variety of contemporary media, including sound, video, digital photography and performance, the artworks in Or The Sea look at water from a variety of angles, ranging from its physical characteristics, its political repercussions to its religious symbolism and poetic metaphor.
Participating artists include Kristina Baker, Matthew Barnes, Alexa Calef, Michael Copley, Danielle Earle, Katie Ford, Lindsey Garrison, Adam Sanchez and Susan Thao. The title is excerpted from an Isak Dineson quote, "The cure for anything is salt water--sweat, tears or the sea." It was chosen by the artists as indicative of the infinite territory of "cure," or creative exploration. This breadth ranges from explorations about fear of water, to metaphorical allusions to water torture, to a lament to love washed away.
