“Legacy” is a piece created to address certain truths about humanity and art that
are inescapable. Dealing with the struggle to make, create, and yearn to make successful
art the piece confronts the daily battles of the working artist, and what is left
when the artist is no longer with us.
“ Flow of destruction“ is an audience participation piece that represents the effects
humans have on the biodiversity of our oceans. Creating hundreds of painted clay
fish, this group of artists has suspended the depths of the ocean right above our
head to bring awareness to the magnitude of loss we create everyday beneath the ocean.
The artists ask that you cut down, one fish, to symbolize your inadvertent participation
in their destruction.
“Don’t Worry, We are Here to Assist You” is a glimpse into what can happen when we
lose our natural independence on ourselves, relying on the machines we create to make
our everyday easier. With such a grand gift of intelligence and speed, what have
we lost? Our artists ask the audience to decide.
“Timmy Travels” is a social media interaction experiment addressing our constant need
to be seen and heard online. Instead of viewing social media as impersonal and invasive,
this piece acknowledges how it can bring us together. Highlighting the different
directions people on the FGCU campus and community at large take, this group asks
you to take a Timmy with you, photograph where you are with Timmy, and then post it
to their instagram page at #fgcutimmy.
