The Urgent Imperative: Artist?s Talk

In-person session

January 16, 2020 | 5:00 pm - 6:00 pm
Human behavior towards the natural work has often had unintended consequences. At a certain scale this is not a problem; the Earth can absorb a surprising amount of disruption and interference. However, there are inevitable limits with dire consequences. We have now reached a critical threshold in both complexity and scale —an Urgent Imperative— where we must intervene to create sustainable solutions with global impact. Through computer-generated objects and digital sculptures, Rothwell juxtaposes nature’s elegant forms and ecosystems with man-made objects to emphasize the pressing need for humans to take action.
