“Sensing Change” in Leonardo On-line
January 3, 2014 - Philadelphia, PA
Excerpted from an exhibit review by Hannah Star Rogers:
The Sensing Change exhibit held at the Chemical Heritage Foundation (CHF) gallery explores the experience of changing environments by artists who employed and complicated scientific techniques and understandings in their artworks. Nine artists (Vaughn Bell, Diane Burko, Roderick Coover, Katie Holton, Stacey Levy, Eve Mosher, Andrea Polli, Fernanda Viégas and Martin Wattenberg) represent a variety of approaches to the changing environment conveyed through photography, performance, film, sculpture, and digital mediums.
