Repost: Artist response: Lowrey Sims
Listening to Lowrey Sims talk reminded me of an architecture class I took this semester for a couple of reasons. First off, when she sees different meanings in art compared to the artist's intentions. In class we would have many conceptual projects to present and it was often the case that the professor or TA would notice concepts and relations that were not intentional. The environmental aspect is also a subject that is emphasized in that class. We dealt with recycling in that class which made me find the trash truck full of mirrors a very interesting look at the relation between the people who create trash and where it goes. My favorite series of work she showed was by this someone that
took a camera and partially submerged it to show pictures of komodo national park. Even though there wasnt exactly many meanings to these pictures they were very beautiful.
