Widening Circles — Eileen Roscina Biennial artist, Eileen Roscina, was our resident artist in the South Gallery, August 25 - September 5. Her exhibition is from September 2 – November 1. Roscina is an artist, experimental filmmaker and naturalist currently living in Denver, Colorado. For her exhibition, she created this dream kitchen and created a wallpaper made of pressed flowers. The pattern of the wallpaper is inspired by a voronoi pattern, the way in which bubbles are arranged in nature. This is an indicator of nature’s tendency to favor efficiency: the nearest neighbor, shortest path, tightest fit. This idea leads to the physical and social bubbles we currently live in. Humans are experiencing the impacts of a new world with limited contact and touch. Roscina looks ahead to the day when we don’t have to think twice about widening our bubbles, our circles. However, right now, when in the kitchen baking bread, fermenting, or cooking more than usual, bubbles are a sign of life - a sign of hope.
