John and June Allcott Gallery: Undergraduate Honors Exhibition, Ayla Gizlice, “Natura Naturans”
April 22, 2019 @ 8:00 am - April 26, 2019 @ 5:00 pm
Closing Reception, April 26, 6 pm
The title of this project, Natura Naturans, poses the noun, natura, as a verb in the present tense. This implies process and transition; nature is subject to change, and human actions can positively or negatively impact natural processes.
This project reflects upon the concept of nature as a process rather than a fixed system by examining a specific ecological site, Jordan Lake. Through collected materials and specimens from the site this project examines the anthropogenic changes to the ecological system, and the way that human impact has altered the natural processes. Natura Naturans balances the display of data/information and abstract, poetic, sculptural gestures.
Gallery Hours: Monday-Friday, 8 am-5 pm
