[Arts-announce] Reminder: Wed, May 16: Through the Lens: Growth. A Photography Exhibit by MIT students

MIT Program in Art, Culture and Technology
Through the Lens: Growth
A Photography Exhibit by MIT students

…………………………………………………………………………

Opening Reception: Wednesday,  May 16, 7–8:30p
Exhibit runs through May 30, 2012

Monday–Friday, 9a–5p
MIT Media Lab Complex Building (E14)
…………………………………………………………………………

The exhibited projects, realized by students of 4.343 Advanced Photography and Related Media,  artistically explore systemic, socio-political, and psychological issues around concepts of growth.

Throughout the spring semester, MIT students investigated aspects of the ongoing transformation of the human environment since industrialization—on physical, psychological and systemic levels—and grappled with the concept of limits to growth on a finite planet.

The projects test photography’s potential to understand and reflect our current state and possible systemic problems that originate from our modes of existence. Accordion scrap books were produced throughout the semester as a tool for research and project/concept development.

Exhibiting Students: Reem Abuzeid, Widya Anggraini, Lawrence Barriner, Feifei Feng, Danielle Hicks, Maggie Jordan, Sing Yeung Lau, Bin Li,  Jeffrey H. Lin, Walter Menendez, Farre Nixon, Adam Sachs, William Sorensen, Misha Sra.

This exhibition was made possible with the generous support of Charles Fendrock.

Also on view on the 5th floor of E14:

The projects, which address issues of vital concern to the students, were developed in the context of a broader exploration of the tension between what can be seen and underlying causal structures.
