Material Transformation:

Brittany Ransom and Marilyn Waligore


Waligore's visually striking manipulated photographic imagery and Ransom's haunting mixed-genre work heighten our awareness of what we take for granted about our perceptions of our world.  Both artists use the environment as a source of collaboration, generating work that probes our relationship to the places we inhabit. 

Marilyn Waligore is Professor of Aesthetic Studies/Photography at the University of Texas at Dallas. Her work explores connections between sculptural form and photography through her investigations of discarded objects, recording, altering and reframing the relationships of these objects and the effects of our consumption on the landscape.

Brittany Ransom is Assistant Professor of Sculpture and New Genres at California State University at Long Beach. Her work encompasses sculpture, installation, sound, video and other new media forms that derive from open-source computer code and manipulation of various types of digitized information, as well as more traditional technique, exploring the way we interact with the "natural" world.

Both of these acclaimed artists have exhibited widely and have received notable grants, awards and fellowships.

September 11, 2015, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m.
