Molly C. Morin and Stephen Wolochowicz
Feb. 7 – March 31, 2014
Artist Reception & Gallery Talk: Thursday, March 13 @ 6:00 p.m.

Clemson University Center for Visual Arts-Greenville is pleased to present Red Balloons, an exhibition of multi-media works by Molly C. Morin and Stephen Wolochowicz. Morin uses digital methods, including computer coding, 3D modeling, and digital photo-editing to produce work that explores the difficult relationship between information and meaning. Morin’s projects visualize data sets generated from a wide range of sources, from poetry to text messages, and reflect on the impact of communication technology on daily life. Wolochowicz’s current work utilizes abstract industrial shapes with organic features. Through the use of vivid color and texture, he adds a playful aesthetic to his underlying concepts. They deal with the human invention, environment and progress through networks of industrial themes.This exhibit will also feature interactive collaborative works by Morin and Wolochowicz that are programmed to visually respond to human activity in a way that encourages users to engage their bodies and voices.

Both artists will present a gallery talk at the artist reception on Thursday, March 13th at 6:00 p.m..
