THIS EVENT IS OVER
Living within a dynamic interface-earth’s landscape, we as humans are interpreters of erosional and depositional routing systems within our landscape. The use of Geographic Information Systems, which have moved from the core geology to providing day-to-day services like mapping and navigation, is one that has become extremely portable and mobile. Being part of the mass fluxes using such technology, Mary Brossman is interested in the transport of physical, biological, and chemical processes which are translated into a narrative, gridded by her imagination. With a goal to understand the structural evolution of landscapes within particular areas of rock deformation due to plate tectonics, the emerging technologies in geology are beginning to create a process for her art making and historical understanding aimed towards the future of movement.
As a Fine Arts major at PNCA and a Geology major at PSU, Mary utilizes her studies in aim towards sculpting landscapes modified by surficial processes and realizing how they evolve by human response.
