A photography exhibit by MIT students
Opening Reception: Wednesday, 16 May, 2012, 7–8:30p
The exhibited projects, realized by students of 4.343 Advanced Photography and Related Media, artistically explore systemic, socio-political, and psychological issues around concepts of growth.
Throughout the spring semester, MIT students investigated aspects of the ongoing transformation of the human environment since industrialization—on physical, psychological and systemic levels—and grappled with the concept of limits to growth on a finite planet.
The projects test photography’s potential to understand and reflect our current state and possible systemic problems that originate from our modes of existence. Accordion scrap books were produced throughout the semester as a tool for research and project/concept development.
Exhibiting Students: Reem Abuzeid, Widya Anggraini, Lawrence Barriner, Feifei Feng, Danielle Hicks, Maggie Jordan, Sing Yeung Lau, Bin Li, Jeffrey H. Lin, Walter Menendez, Farre Nixon, Adam Sachs, William Sorensen, Misha Sra.
This exhibition was made possible with the generous support of Charles Fendrock.
