Lynn Cazabon, still from Melt (2018).

Lynn Cazabon, professor of visual arts, is showing excerpts from two projects: Losing Winter, a participatory, site-specific, multimedia project that explores the personal and cultural losses associated with the climate crisis; and Diluvian, a series of cameraless photographic prints that reflect on the contrasting decay rates of manufactured electronics and organic materials.

Kathy Marmor, Beyond Midlife: what’s lost, what’s gained, 2021.

Kathy Marmor, associate professor of visual arts, exhibits two series of works: Philomela’s Thread: a common place book (2021), and Skeins (2021) from her collaborative project Beyond Midlife: What’s Lost, What’s Gained. These works engender an interplay between craft and the commonplace book to focus on women who are at or beyond midlife and their accrual of self-defining life experiences.

Lisa Moren with Tsvetan Bachvaroff, 2021, still from “Under the Bay,” from Augmented Reality work

Lisa Moren, professor of visual arts, will exhibit two projects. Under the Bay is an augmented reality project with marine biologist Tsvetan Bachvaroff and software engineer Marc Olano. The AR uses live data streaming in from the Chesapeake Bay, where the water itself influences meandering stories, animation, and original music by Dan Deacon. The AR project is supplemented by a podcast, objects, photography, a wall of wonders, video, and animation. The second project is also a collaboration with Tsvetan Bachvaroff featuring a bioluminescent tank, entitled What Is the Shape of Water?, where millions of microbes (dinoflagellates) describe the shape of water by lighting up when visitors speak to the ancient critters.
