Eli Blasko’s Diagrams In Flux explores themes of temporality and fragility. The exhibit seeks to delineate the perplexing sense that there is little one can know about the future and playfully define the manner in which time distorts certainties of the past. Blasko describes his work as “three-dimensional blueprints.” Alumni of the Fine Arts Center of Greenville who are now freshmen at Clemson assisted in the installation of the exhibit. Plans are underway for Blasko to collaborate with other departments within College of Architecture, Arts and Humanities as well as work with neighborhood students.

About Eli Blasko

Eli Blasko’s practice spans a wide range of media, from traditional sculpture and printmaking to video, performance, and interactive works. Thematically, his work embraces notions of uncertainty regarding the possibility of accurately representing ever-evolving systems such as culture, history, or the self. Exploring contrasting roles of the arts and sciences within modern society is also a frequently visited topic in Blasko’s work. He holds a BFA from Slippery Rock University of Pennsylvania and has also studied Intermedia at the Academy of Art and Design in Bratislava, Slovakia as well as Traditional Blacksmithing at Touchstone Center for Crafts in Farmington, Pennsylvania. Blasko has current work on display at the internationally recognized Pittsburgh Art Biennial until the end of October Learn more about Eli Blasko.
