Pedro Reyes Legislative Theatre Performance
Amendment to the Amendment: (Under)stand Your Ground

The performance was truly a collaborative effort that included USF College of the Arts faculty and students. The USF percussion ensemble and jazz combos played Reyes’ unique instruments, crafted from firearms confiscated and disabled by the Mexican Army, which are on view at USFCAM in the exhibition CAM@25: Social Engagement through March 8. Everyone who attended the sold-out event was invited to participate in the performance, which was created by Reyes in partnership with USF Theatre professor Dora Arreola, and USF and Community Stepping Stones students, to encourage dialogue and address issues related to the Second Amendment.

USF Graphicstudio Research in Production Techniques: Keith Edmier, Cycas revolute bulbil

This 2003 video illustrates research in the production techniques developed at Univesity of South Florida's Graphicstudio used to make artist Keith Edmier's Cycas revoluae bulbil

Keith Edmier developed new techniques for pouring molten lava in collaboration with Graphicstudio's fabricators and University geologists. Basalt, the solid form of lava, was crushed, heated to the melting point, and poured around the form of a cycad plant, leaving a cavity with an impression of the cycad. A urethane resin cast of a cycad plant was hand painted and attached to the lava form. Edmier has been interested in making sculpture with molten rock from the earth's core for several years. In Hawaii he investigated the phenomenon of lava tree molds, created when molten lava engulfs a live, wet tree, leaving a negative cavity or impression. The cycad is an ancient plant that has survived with few changes for millions of years. Although there are male and female cycads, the plant can reproduce asexually, by generating pups of the same sex as the parent. His plant sculptures address aspects of sexuality -- the male and female functions of reproduction, renewal and rebirth.

Teresita Fernández: Blind Landscape Exhibition Walkthrough

Teresita Fernández is internationally known for her immersive installations and evocative large-scale sculptures that address space, light, and the perception of change. The exhibition is curated by USF Institute for Research in Art Chief Curator, David Louis Norr and will present a spectrum of the artist’s most recent and ambitious projects, including a new sculpture and a room sized installation created specifically for this exhibition.

Featured among the works in the exhibition is Vertigo (sotto en su) from 2007. Made in collaboration with USF Graphicstudio, Vertigo is comprised of layers of precision-cut, highly polished metal, woven into a reflective and intricate arboreal pattern suspended high above the viewer—not unlike an immense, cascading tree branch. The multiple planes of space, through which the viewer looks, become visible simultaneously, vacillating between object and optical phenomena, continuously disassembling and reassembling. "The idea that one must turn away from nature in order to see it is a loaded concern at the crux of Fernández’ new works," states David Norr. "Nature, for Fernández, is a fabrication of culture where cinematic illusions, industrial design and lasting ephemeral experience intertwine—collapsing artifice and nature into prismatic experience."

Stacy Levy | Tampa Wind

Stacy Levy's, Tampa Wind, is a wind-activated rendering of a section of the Hillsborough River as it passes through the eastern edge the USF Tampa Campus. Fabricated in stainless steel, Tampa Wind reflects the changing light and environmental conditions specific to the site. The Levy commission is mounted on the exterior stair tower wall running the full height of the four-story Natural and Environmental Sciences facility. There are over 2000 stainless discs ranging in size from one and half inches to four inches, attached to individual posts that emerge from a stainless plate cut to render the topography of the river. The slightest breeze causes the discs to move creating an ever-changing field of reflected light that can be seen thousands of yards away from the site. The effect is not unlike the play between wind and light on water, reminding the viewer of the source of Levy's imagery and the nature of the natural environment.

1º Celsius | Colloquium: Art as a Catalyst for Social Transformation

The USF Institute for Research in Art hosts scholars, curators, artist collectives, architects, and social scientists in a one-day colloquium on art as catalyst for social transformation in contemporary society. Structured more as a platform for questioning and debate and less as a lecture series, the discourse is meant to focus on the multifaceted implications of socially-engaged art. The colloquium is meant to address the aesthetic considerations and implicit cross-disciplinary collaborations that such projects entail, as they take form within the broader socio-political and economic contexts. Ultimately, colloquium participants attempt to address the role of the artist and the contemporary art institution in formulating a sustained relationship within communities.

Elsewhere explores the familiar and often tragic theme of the quest. The artists included in this exhibition embark upon quixotic adventures to both real and imagined places - at times edging on the ridiculous, treacherous, and sublime. Pulling from sources as varied as Victorian expeditions, romantic tourism, travel literature, and Hollywood films, the artists in Elsewhere blend documentary styles with found footage, tableaux, and performance into potent mixtures of fact, fantasy, and feeling. To this end, they employ strategies of displacement, re-enactment, and repetition in an effort to erode the temporal boundaries implicit to existing representations of histories, identities, and geographies.

Vic Muniz: Reflex Exhibition Walkthrough

Since the mid-1990s, Brazilian artist Vik Muniz has been making an international impact with his photographs documenting images he has made in an astonishing variety of non-art, often ephemeral materials, including dirt, sugar, wire, string, chocolate syrup, peanut butter, fake blood, color chips, the circular paper remnants made by hole punches, and diamonds. Muniz’ images are at once familiar—they are often of recognizable news images, works from art history, or well-known personages—and alien: after an initial moment or recognition, it quickly becomes clear that these images are not what they first seemed.
