Kerri Cushman and Dr. Alix Dowling Fink collaborated on "Riveting Inferences"

February 25, 2008

Kerri Cushman, Assistant Professor of Art, and Dr. Alix Dowling Fink, Associate Professor of Biology, collaborated on Riveting Inferences, an interactive installation that was on display from Feb. 8-23 at Vespine Gallery & Studios in Chicago. The installation, which consists of cyanotype images on handmade denim paper (salvaged from jeans worn by ornithologists in the field during research activities), “represents a collaboration that bridges the arts and sciences through the use of historic documentation,” according to a description. Longwood undergraduate students Alex Grabiec, Kristen Herndon, Michael McAteeer, Laura Nodtvedt and Kari Wilson assisted with the year-long research project, which was funded in part by the Cook-Cole College of Arts and Sciences and the Faculty Research Grant program. Vespine Gallery is an artist-run independent gallery that “provides intimate exhibition space for emerging artists.”
