A “happy accident” is how Eastern Mennonite University (EMU) senior digital media and art major Susan Alexander describes her senior show.
“I lost most of my original work when my hard drive crashed,” said Alexander. “I had to work over the past four weeks to catch up, but I am excited about what I created. It’s a happy accident.”
Alexander’s show, “MacroCosmos,” takes images from different gardens and transposes them using gel onto windows. The process takes several hours, and there are 15 windows in the show, according to Alexander.
The exhibit opens Saturday, Oct. 8, with a reception and gallery talk from the artist at 4 p.m. in the art gallery located on the third floor of EMU’s Hartzler Library.
“Her senior show reinterprets the natural world through macro lenses and alternative development process that unveils a hidden world,” said Paulette Moore, associate professor of Visual and Communication Arts.
Select pieces of her work will be for purchase. A further look at Alexander’s work can be found at www.vimeo.com/29940735
The display is open daily for viewing during regular library hours. Admission to the gallery is free.
