Codes on Canvas
an exhibition of work by Simone Alter Muri at The Student Union Gallery
Closing Reception- April 10, 5-7pm
This exhibition integrates the dichotomies of data collection and apathy. This work reveals depersonalization on multiple levels by juxtaposing similar images derived from a variety sources researched by the artist. Disparate icons from the genocide of the Holocaust, ubiquitous barcodes, the scanning of irises of the eyes of the poor in India, and environmental concerns suggest their commonality despite apparent differences. The artist represents these phenomena through their common visual theme of lines and patterns .
The Student Union Art Gallery is located at the center of the UMass Amherst campus, on the south side of the Student Union building, facing the pond. It is is a short walk from the campus garage.
