Yesterday I visited the Brigham Young University (BYU) Museum of Art
. One of Paul's relatives is a volunteer there and wanted us to see a Carl Bloch
exhibit. I was impressed by the museum and its exhibitions. It opened in October 1993. The architecture of the building is very nice. The museum has a permanent collection of more than 16,500 objects with an emphasis on American and religious art. In addition to Bloch, we saw a Dorothea Lange
exhibit of photographs from a Life Magazine piece she did in 1953 about three Mormon towns. The coolest exhibit to me was something by Brian Knep
called Healing 1
. What a cool artist and what a cool exhibit. Brian Knep is a new media artist who uses science and technology to explore change, healing, struggle and acceptance. The piece we saw uses algorithms to create a glowing pool of organic patterns projected on the floor. The patterns tear and rebuild themselves as a person moves across the projection mirroring the healing process as a scar develops over a wound and reflecting the memory that those scars may hold.
Check out the cool video here.
