"...the allusive nature of her well-crafted meditations [are] able to effortlessly shrink and expand scale, radiate and absorb light, and mark and move time." -Garth Rockcastle

HGA Gallery (Rapson Hall)

small architecture BIG LANDSCAPES
through March 6, 2011
One billion leftover people - typically called squatters or self-builders or homeless (it's a big category) - claim leftover spaces in cities and live in unauthorized dwellings made of scavenged, leftover materials. Each of the works in this show is a beginning point for rethinking our attitudes about who and what we typically see as having no value while suggesting that our leftover human beings, building materials, and spaces can be seen--must be seen--as someone or something with potential. Curated by Wes Janz, professor of architecture at Ball State University and founder, onesmallproject.org.

Goldstein Museum of Design (McNeal Hall)

Smart House, Livable Community, Your Future
through May 23, 2011
Where do you want to live when you grow older? For many people the answer is "at home." This exhibition explores the housing trend of aging in place by developing products and adaptive technologies that allow people to stay in their homes. Curated by Marilyn Bruin (Housing Studies) and graduate student Jodene Riha. Made possible by a grant from the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services.
