The Department of Art at the University of Maine at Augusta will present a selection of new work by seven artists from the University of Maine at Orono Intermedia MFA program. Unfolding Traces explores the concept of time in seven unique creative visions, through the talents of students from all levels of the three year program, including recent alumni now pursuing Interdisciplinary PhDs. Works from Ozgur Akgun, Benjamin Burpee, John Carney, Bethany Engstrom, Siglinde Langholz, Sally Levi, and Susan Smith have expressed this common thread through interactive sculpture, painting, installation, and video. Although the individual artists differ in concerns and approach, in revealing the trace left behind or the process of entropy they have developed a body of work that engages the viewer in time and temporality.
The Intermedia MFA is an interdisciplinary program focused on new forms of creative production. Both faculty and students in the program come from a wide variety of disciplines, comprising new media, dance, science, writing, fine arts and philosophy. They are united by their common interest in engaging in multiple research processes, critical thinking, and working collaboratively with current production tools and technologies.
The opening reception will include talks by the artists on their diverse practices, as well as an overview of the program. The campus community and public are cordially invited to this collaborative event between the Augusta and Orono campuses.
