Spectrum Faculty Lecture: Lynn Cazabon
Lynn Cazabon, associate chair and associate professor of Visual Arts, utilizes photography, web and mobile device platforms, video and installation. Her work seeks to understand the nature of human progress by looking at what is left behind in its wake. Cazabon’s recent project, Uncultivated, examines wild plants within the urban environment as a means to reveal the unintended consequences of human activity upon the land. Her work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally in museums and galleries for the past 20 years, and is part of the permanent collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston.
Also on view in the exhibition is Cazabon’s collaborative project with Neal McDonald, Junkspace, a site specific animation and iOS app which juxtaposes electronic waste and orbital debris and selections from Immigrant Landscapes, a collaborative project with Patterson Clark.
This talk is part of a series of artist lectures accompanying the exhibition Spectrum: 2013 UMBC Visual Arts Faculty Exhibition.
