SEE-ING: The Environmental Consciousness Project
October 15-November 16
The School of Architecture presents a symposium and exhibition, SEE-ING: The Environmental Consciousness Project, curated by Assistant Professor of Architecture Catty Dan Zhang.
Our obsession with vision is increasing in these days of evolving imaging techniques and sophisticated display systems. SEE-ING is a project that, for a moment, both questions and celebrates the presence of technological facts and the profound joy of experiencing their effects. It brings together a diverse group of architects, artists, designers, and theorists looking at how transformed notions of "vision," "visual," or "the visible" inspires creative practices in a number of areas, including new typologies of space, representational methods, material practices, prostheses and byproducts of systems and machines, atmospheric mediums, neuroesthetics, and emotion. Here, seeing is not limited to the typical concept of visualization, but instead refers to a range of multilayered interfaces between people and their environment.
The exhibition, which will be on view in Storrs Gallery through November 16, includes the work of 11 artists and architects from across the globe.

About the CoA+A Gallery System
The mission of the College of Arts + Architecture gallery system is to create lively forums in which the curious encounter the work of global, regional, and local artists through diverse media and dynamic exchanges that are nourished by the intellectual and creative life of the university. Our programming will echo crossovers of the visual arts, architecture, music, theatre, and dance inherent to the College of Arts + Architecture at UNC Charlotte. We seek to provide a haven for experimentation, to invigorate the environments we occupy, and to amplify the means to engage art and design in our community.
