Wanda Pearcy Lecture Tues Nov 18 at 6pm
Digital Art Mixed-Media Students,
Please attend the Wanda Pearcy Visual Culture Lecture
Tues Nov 18 at 6pm in Montague Hall
Wanda Pearcy is a full time faculty member in Digital Art and Photography. She teaches Photography and Alternative Processes classes for the Department of Art & Design at University of Minnesota Duluth.
I am interested in using artistic practice as a vehicle for transformation. The subjects I am using are organic processes such as: seasons and the weather, aging and death, dirt and plant life, decay and regeneration, i.e. organic life ... that is in a continual state of flux. When comparing the human body I see similar processes that suggest we are not separate from the landscape, but a living part existing as part of the landscape. My work explores this connection between the human experience and the land.
Blog Assignment: Please reflect on the artist's creative process and relationship between digital media and environmental themes. Post your response to the comments here. (~150 words) by Thursday November 20.
