"DNA Of Creativity" Exhibition
April 12-August 3, 2014
Featuring 40 collaborating artists, scientists and educators, this unique exhibition explores the power of fusing the energies of art and science to promote understanding and new ways of viewing the world. Presenting artwork created by four teams, this exhibition focuses on four separate initiatives.
Teams include: Sea Changes: Act, Urban Succession, PolyAesthetic Mapping: The Muses (PAMM) and View Art Now.
Sea Changes: Act will display coral-like glass art pieces along with a large installation to motivate community action around plastic pollution, over-fishing and climate change/acidification.
Urban Succession has created sculptural homes that fit the needs of specific species in urban settings. Select sculptures will be on display in addition to video documentation of animals experiencing these habitats.
Team PAMM developed a software application that will eventually be used as a survey tool to map a variety of aesthetic expressions.
Finally, View Art Now is developing a mobile app to include location and date-based art events searchable on the go that will be on display in the gallery. DNA of Creativity is a project initiated by the San Diego Visual Arts Network in 2011.
This exhibition will be on view April 12-August 3, 2014.
