Stephanie Cormier
MFA thesis exhibition

6 May - 10 May 2014
Artist Reception: 9 May, 7 - 10pm

Collaborating with Objects, Stardust and Million Year Old Carbon presents the artist’s idea of melding distinct taxonomies - of all earthly elements slowly coming together to an entropic place. The use of narrative and speculative fiction in conjunction with current ecological and geological circumstances gives Cormier a generative process to create an eco system of new forms. These hybrids are futuristic artifacts that suppose a gradual metamorphosis in geologic time. They blend nature and synthetic plastics, cross mediums and flip between the tangible and the implied.
