The Anderson Lecture Series, Penn State College of Arts and Architecture, “‘I’ and ‘Eye’: Creative and Sensory Innovation in Eco Material Art”: March 22, 2021
This talk journeys into a frontier of cultural exploration, but it doesn’t arrive at this destination until we first bid farewell to the conditions that propelled our departure. These conditions appear in the title of this talk. It addresses “I”, the first person singular; and “eye” the visual sense organ. Our exodus is spurred by threatening jeopardies that emerged out of their concurrent influences. Contemporary artists are among those seeking to create a new world order. Some are already settling this frontier. They will guide our entry into a new, Eco Material world order.
