We’d like to congratulate MFA Thesis candidate, Jordan Fowler for successfully defending his MFA thesis. His exhibition New Ruins will be our opener for the Fall 2020 exhibition season at the Lee Gallery. Exhibition dates, an artist talk and reception will be announced when the University reopens. Please stay tuned for future announcements regarding this exhibit.
“New Ruins” MFA Thesis Exhibit by Jordan Fowler is an experiment in the collision of agencies and aesthetics in physical and digital growth and decay. This body of work emphasizes a post-humanities perspective of a failed future, taking the form of interconnected physical and digital artifacts. This research is explored from a combination of both analytical research-based investigations and science fictionesque narratives. The ambition of this experiment is to stumble upon novel interactions across the threshold that separates physical and digital spaces, an in-between space that is of growing importance as the agency of digital systems advance.
