LANDSCAPES OF THE MIND

Landscapes of the mind are perceptions of our physical environment as seen through our eyes. Landscapes for this exhibit are viewed as a metaphor for the processes of daily living:  creating shelter (putting down roots), growing food, survival (harsh elements of air, land and water).  Landscapes can also be seen as cultural expressions (cracks in the sidewalk of a declining neighborhood) or can reflect political, ethnic, and social strife (wars over territory).  Finally, landscapes can be viewed as expressions of dreams, hopes, and sacred places for calming the mind and creating serenity.

IMMERSION
