LAST FISH ON EARTH: Our Happy Re-Granulated Future

By Jarod Charzewski and Colleen Ludwig
Elizabeth Dunlap Patrick Gallery
Rutledge Building


The water quality in our worlds’ oceans is at a critical tipping point. Plastic pollution is a primary culprit in degrading the ocean environment and threatening its inhabitants. Creating a rising tide of plastic water, Charzewski and Ludwig’s site-specific installation offers the viewer a glimpse into the future, as if there was no more clear water in the ocean, but only seas of broken-down plastic, and its one remaining inhabitant.

Impaired Perceptions by Brian Steel

Lewandowski Student Gallery
McLaurin Hall
 
Artist Talk: 5 PM, Dina’s Place / DiGiorgio Student Center
Reception: 6 PM Lewandowski Student Gallery / McLaurin Hall

To kick off Winthrop’s October celebration of Disability Month, guest speaker, Brian Charles Steel will be on campus to speak September 16, 2015 along with an installation of his photographic exhibit, “Impaired Perceptions.” Born with short fiber syndrome, Steels’ black and white portraits of himself and other physically impaired people explores the concept of perception and socially constructed identity. Some of his subjects have physical impairments that are not visible, which further challenges the notion that seeing is believing.
