Studio Projects > Detritus Installation

Phillip J. Meyers, Jr. Gallery
Cincinnati, Ohio
February 13-17, 2012
Detritus is a collaborative group installation by Low-intensity Skirmish which invites viewers to take part in a unique art experience that poses questions about how we construct value and meaning with materials that have been discarded. How do we as consumers and creators play a role in deciding the afterlife of detritus? Is it possible to discover meaning through the process of organization? The artists’ intentions in part are to prompt each individual viewer to bring his or her own sensibilities to the organization and meaning of the recyclable and discarded objects within the gallery space. An Artists Reception will be held on Thursday, February 16 from 5 – 7pm. Members of the collaborative group include artists Carrie Grubb, Cynthia Gregory, Curtis Goldstein, Tyler Hamilton, Greg Swiger, Nishant Vishwa, and Jennifer Wenker. Material support from Rumpke Recycling of Cincinnati.
