This juried exhibit is a reflection on the materials, aesthetics and values of our city, country and relationship to nature. The works include a portrait of Philadelphia seen through Google Earth’s reflection of the world whose images are made up over time by commercial providers and platforms; a Sand Counting Lab that reflects upon the two million people incarcerated in the U.S. penal system; jewelry whose reflection is the “bounce” of light after it strikes a surface; sculptural works that reflect upon nature, where patterns are an ephemeral reference to our environment in flux. A collection of fragments, much like a prism, this exhibition provides a unique spectrum of reflections.
