ORANGE SEAS & ROBOT BEES M.F.A. Thesis Exhibition by Emily Beveridge School of Art + Design August 21-29, 2015 Seigfred Hall, Ohio University Art Gallery Reception Tuesday August 25, 5-8 p.m. Gallery Hours: 10am-5pm Monday-Friday Free and Open to the Public This is a fable of our future. From the beginning humans have been telling stories to make sense of, and add meaning to their lives. More often than not, these stories include animals. This is to be expected, because we share our world with them, and our very existence relies upon them. As history unfolded, the disconnect between our species and our natural world has grown larger. We now find ourselves experiencing a human caused mass extinction event, the 6th extinction, which is a result of our population numbers and our consumption. Orange Seas & Robot Bees is an exploration of current and upcoming environmental changes, paired with classic animal stories in my attempt to bridge the gap between myth and reality.
