Still Life with Gummi Bears by Lisa Crafts


ENVIRONMENTAL


The relationship of the natural to the technological is explored in both hopeful and critical ways. Several artists consider the fate of the environment using inventive critique as technology becomes both a form of expression and a cautionary tale.


Lisa Crafts and Martin Kruck explore environmental concerns in elegiac and poetic ways. Crafts’ surreal still life animations, such as Still Life with Gummi Bears, seduce with lush strangeness while Kruck’s imaginative Habitorium landscapes merge natural and industrial spaces. Debra Krikun creates an immersive digital/natural environment, with organic materials and an interactive digital screen. Using engineering in interactive technology to speak to the press- ing environmental issues of our day, Maria Michails’ Petri Series: Benzene and William Meyer’s Portable Air Scrubber are optimistic inventions that critique current models of production of energy, food and natural resources.
