Laura Fritz/Rick Silva: Encounters

Saturday, March 6

Virtual Event

Encounters pairs works by Oregon artists Laura Fritz (b. 1970) of Portland and Rick Silva (b. 1977) of Eugene. Together, Silva’s web-based, audio-visual piece The Silva Field Guide to Birds of a Parallel Future and Fritz’s three-dimensional Alvarium 2 suggest interactions between the natural and the digital worlds, human and animal activity, and knowing and not knowing. Each artist operates in this malleable space, inviting a sense of wonder and further inquiry. How do observation and speculation shape our own understandings of reality?
