Palimpsest exhibition announcement

A sound art piece by Samantha DiRosa, associate professor of art and environmental studies, is currently on display in Washington D.C. as part of an innovative exhibition of destroyed artworks and QR codes.  

The exhibition Palimpsest is a Coup d’Espace project at Washington Project for the Arts, curated by Steven H. Silberg and Neil C. Jones, which explores the constant layering of information in contemporary society and the impact technological advancements have on the ways we represent and receive information.

DiRosa's sound piece, "Japan Tsunami Anniversary", which can be heard on the included link, takes its name from a short commemorative article that appeared in the Greensboro News & Record on March 11, 2012, and is a meditation on information, transmission, and emotional distance, through the lens of the devastating earthquake that hit Japan just over 18 months ago.  More information on the exhibit can be read on the press release link.

Palimpsest can be seen from October 12 through November 9, 2012.
