Heather Harvey: Feynman's Sister and Other Space Weather Hazards

Heather Harvey, Solid Objects and The Wandering Clew, 2012- 2014 ongoing, 150+ pieces with more added as the walk continues, Dimensions variable

Opening Reception and Artist Talk: Friday, October 16, 7 – 9 p.m. Heather Harvey presents a site-specific work made with gleanings from daily walks. The found fragments stretch along the wall of the gallery suggesting a cryptic diagram, a map or an unfolding journey. Clustering, dispersing and re-ordering, they resonate with possible histories, meanings and value. Drawing on the minutiae of lived experience, hidden infrastructures and invisible ordering mechanisms-things like gravity, quantum physics, and radio waves, but also the human body, memory and contradictory emotions, Harvey explores subtle philosophical, phenomenological and material issues.

Thank you to the Maryland State Arts Council, Vermont Studio Center, Sustainable Arts Foundation, the Virginia Center for Creative Arts, and Washington College in Chestertown, MD, for the financial and material support that made this exhibition possible.
