Plantbodies: Indicators and Reactors

  • Ryan Aragon & Allyce Wood
  • January 2 - February 2, 2013
  • Opening reception:
    Thursday, Jan 3, 6-8pm

These new works are meditations on the interactions between plant life and manmade objects, systems, and environments. Aragon uses a variety of found/used/collected materials to make interactive installations and living sculptures which pair with Wood's detailed works on paper. Together, the work illuminates how the byproducts of our actions and everyday experiences affect other organisms and their ecosystems and emphasize the connections between plant bodies, human bodies, and the body of the earth.
