Lawrence Hall, Hallway in front of #177
1190 Franklin Boulevard, Eugene, OR
A site-specific art installation with over 500 woodcut prints of endangered/threatened and invasive species in Oregon, by ARTR 346 Relief class.
Printmaking has been a tool for spreading ideas; it’s a solid ally to democratize our society. The media-specific multiples and repetitions can emphasize and tell a story. The class voted on the topic, “Broken Equilibrium.”
Each one of us worked on three woodcuts: two endangered/threatened species and one invasive species in Oregon. Disappearing species are printed with translucent gray while invasive species are shown in black, which are around and visible everywhere.
We have more prints of endangered/threatened species in this installation mirroring our hope for the future.
