exploring complex subject matter

Dark Ecologies: Susan Harlan, Carolyn Hopkins, Emily Nachison
Bullseye Projects, Portland, Oregon, 2015

The three artists included in Dark Ecologies offer differing perspectives that emphasize the enmeshed relationship between humans and the natural world.

Interactive and learning experiences for this exhibition included a touching table; a didactic explaining the lost wax casting process, a “find it” sheet for visitors of all ages; and a family event using Visual Thinking Strategies techniques to explore the exhibition together. Working with skilled educator Laura O’Quin allowed us to invite children to consider material, process, and the complex subject matter in a developmentally-appropriate way.

Design team: Michael Endo (Curator), Nicole Leaper (Senior Communication Designer), Laura O’Quin (Education)
