Senior BFA studio art major /// Columbus, OH /// she/her/hers
One of the more interesting things I’ve learned about myself during undergrad is my tendency to make friends with science majors. I’ve made friends here across multiple disciplines, and consider those conversations some of the most impacting on my developing perspective of the world. Much of my art deals with themes within nature. It is appreciative of nature’s patterns, strength, and delicacies, however, I’m moving to a point of dealing with the often difficult junction of humans and nature. Although we are a product of this world’s ecology, I think we as humans face the challenge of discerning whether the things that we make and live with are simply too alien. I hope this class will help me gain perspective on the environment as a world citizen and an artist.
