Visiting Artist Feather Metsch Workshop @ Abrams Planetarium  | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

Monday, November 27th 4pm-6pm, Workshop on creating Fulldome Art, Abrams Planetarium

Feather Metsch will present techniques on creating immersive fulldome art for presentation in digital planetariums and similar venues

Feather Metsch (Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians) is a digital artist and researcher whose mediums vary across several fields of art, science and technology, but most often focus on site specific immersive and interactive performance and installation. Feather studied fashion at Parsons University before becoming more interested in the materials themselves, later transferring to The School of the Art Institute of Chicago to study in the Fiber and Material Studies program. She most recently graduated from the Institute for American Indian Arts in 2017, with a BFA in Digital Art. Feather will be attending a technology and art-based interdisciplinary Master’s program in the fall of 2018. Feather’s recent projects have examined the duality of being half Native American and adopted by a non-indigenous family. She explores issues through the complicated lens of blood quantum in her ongoing series Blood/Quantum/Physics, as well as another ongoing series, including Watercycles, where she explores the pervasive yet invisible role that water plays in our lives, something that resonates deeply for the artist, and how she was taught to speak to her ancestors. 

Her visit is made possible by the Abrams Planetarium, WKAR, American Indian and Indigenous Studies, Lyman Briggs College, and the Department of Art, Art History and Design.

DRAWN TO PRINT National Juried Exhibition @ (SCENE) Metrospace | East Lansing | Michigan | United States

DRAWN TO PRINT

A national juried exhibition of drawning and printmaking and everything inbetween.

July 27 – August 31, 2018

Reception July 27, 6-8PM

This exhibition is the result of a national call and features works on paper that explore the ways in which the diverse and inclusive mediums of drawing and printmaking converge and are completely separate.

The path followed by a brayer can begin with a pencil, a mouse, a cut, or a maybe a stencil. There is no limit to the ideas that can be explored through drawing or printmaking. The presence of the artist in these processes can be at the forefront or separated by many layers of information. Surfaces can be additive or subtractive. Lines and forms can be ink, paint, graphite, thread, a cut or a tear. The work in this exhibition meets with the act of one material being pulled across the surface of another.

The richness and diversity of contemporary environmental philosophy remains largely absent from the everyday dis- course and decision-making processes of
environmental governance. One reason for this is a sincere difficulty in translating the less tangible and measurable aspects of our environmental relationships into community practices and governing policies. More difficult still, the mechanisms of environmental decision-making have been historically structured
under the influence of latent environmental philosophies that are neither neutral nor equally welcoming to all considerations. The best plans too often produce the same impoverished results.

THIS SYMPOSIUM seeks to envision a richer and more inclusive environmental governance, proposing specific steps for how environmental philosophy can better engage current governance practices.
