Cooler Water

Written by Allison Musante

Water just got cooler.

An exciting new exhibit at IC’s Handwerker Gallery incorporates water studies from around the world in an interdisciplinary look at the bridge between the science and beauty of water. 

“Water Theory” is a collection of three installations designed by Megan Roberts, a composer and media artist, and Raymond Ghirardo, a sculptor and media artist.

The exhibit uses unusual materials such as neon, latex, and salt to illustrate water’s movement and significance in people’s lives. “It’s about water as a source of many facets of our lives, not only for the biological but for the aesthetic as well,” said Tanya Saunders, dean of the Division of Interdisciplinary and International Studies, in an interview with IC's student newspaper, the Ithacan.

“It’s about artistic expression finding its source in water and what it represents for us in terms of necessity and beauty.”

And it’s very, very cool.

The exhibit is cosponsored by the Park Foundation and the Finger Lakes Environmental Film Festival.

Seeing Purple

Next month, artist Spencer Finch comes to campus to transform IC’s Center for Natural Sciences into a center for art as part of the 2009 C.P. Snow Lecture Series. Finch’s work is innovative in the way it bridges art and science, like conceptualizing the color purple that only bees see.
