Nov 30, 2022 Embodied Ecologies Reception
On November 17th the Digital Matters Lab hosted a reception for the art exhibit, “Embodied Ecologies”. Organizer Natalie Slater worked with Art Access and the Environmental Humanities graduate program in the College of Humanities to develop a collaborative exhibit with work from 9 artists.
The work in this exhibit follows environmental stories that center on disabled experiences. Digital Matters Interim Director, Rebekah Cummings, says about the exhibit “Digital Matters is delighted to host Embodied Ecologies and to support the work of two of the artists, Natalie Slater and Laurie Larson, with Spring 2023 Digital Matters fellowships to further explore their research and design. As a space that explores the intersection of humanities, art, and digital culture, Digital Matters is an appropriate venue to consider the provocations of Embodied Ecologies such as using virtual reality and other technologies to increase accessibility to art and culture.”
For those who were not able to attend or want to experience this reception again, we have captured artists’ explanations of their pieces, and have compiled them with read-aloud artist statements for their work.
Thank you to all artists who participated!
