A video piece by Samantha DiRosa, associate professor of art and environmental studies, is included in the "UN/Sustainable" exhibition at the University of Maryland's Stamp Gallery.
DiRosa is one of five artists to be showcased in the exhibition.
According to a review in the Washington Post "Samantha DiRosa’s video seascape gazes across the Pacific from California to the Fukushima nuclear plant in Japan. At first, the vista seems peacefully detached from the catastrophe 5,069 miles away. But those aren’t ordinary clouds in the distance: The artist has created composite footage of hydrogen explosions at the power-generating facility, and the silent blasts become more conspicuous as the video progresses."
The exhibtion is on view through July 12.
