We’re happy to announce that Allison Hunter, one of our previously featured artists for her recent work Zoospheres, is exhibiting a new project titled Honey Bee May 6th, 2o11. The project features advanced live and computer-constructed footage and, as with much of Allison’s work, asks the viewer to question and reevaluate their relationship to the “natural” world. More from the Mitch Center for the Arts:
Honey Bee, an experimental video by artist Allison Hunter, explores the fascinating nature, fragility, and study of the Western honey bee using a combination of live and computer-constructed 3D footage. Hunter is known for photography and video that make people think about how they perceive and respond to elements of the world around them that are often marginalized or overlooked. She hopes to raise awareness of the vital role honey bees play in industrial agriculture, science and the military through her latest video (approximately ten minutes, with sound) to be screened in 3D at the TLC2 visualization lab.
A reception will take place in the University of Houston Cynthia Woods Mitchell Center for the Arts, Wortham Theatre lobby, prior to walking over to the The Texas Learning & Computation Center for the screening. Admission is Free.
