Illuminating Wilderness: Memory

At Littman + White Gallery

Mon, Jan 08 to Fri, Feb 02

show

An art experience by Kindra Crick

Artist reception: JANUARY 17, 5 - 9pm
Art + Science Panel discussion with Kindra Crick and NW Noggin on JANUARY 31 from 6 - 8pm

You will find yourself enveloped in, and invited to navigate through, an imagined wilderness of the brain within a space filled with LED-illuminated ‘neurons.’ Dendritic arms made of fabric-wrapped wire reach out to create an immersive experience of neuroplasticity. Corseted around each neuron is netted fabric that shimmers in its embrace of the memories held within each synaptic connection. This work was initiated during a collaboration with WSU neuroscientist Dr. John Harkness.

Also on display are a series of memory-inspired collections and etchings created during my recent Jordan Schnitzer Printmaking Residency at the The Sitka Center for Art and Ecology. As a tactile extension of trying to preserve my ephemeral experience, I have included field journal notes, a collection of woodland material, and captured smells of the Oregon coastal wilderness and Salmon River estuary near The Sitka Center. To ignite your sense of wonder, you will discover a delicate bioluminescent curiosity which follows a circadian rhythm of day and night.

This exhibit was funded in part by the Regional Arts & Culture Council.
