Light Matters Opening

Light Matters 
A Two-Person Exhibition of Photography and Video by Christina Seely and Gretchen Skogerson
Opening at CCAS this week
Christina Seely
Both artists take the artificial light of the nighttime urban environment as a primary inspiration for their projects. Christina Seely's LUX, a large-scale photo series, features nighttime photographs of cities in North America, Western Europe, and Japan. Her beautiful and haunting representations of these cities brings us an awareness that this illumination comes at a high cost to our environment and urges us to reconsider the way of living that contemporary society has created. Gretchen Skogerson's Drive Thru is a single channel high-definition video that looks at the impact of natural disaster on the man-made environment. Drive Thru presents nighttime views of shattered illuminated commercial signage from the aftermath of 2004's Hurricane Ivan in Miami.

Come and see us!
