Robert Bowen artist talk about Bioscleave House

Faculty member and artist Robert Bowen will be participating in an artist talk about the Bioscleave House with Bryan Whitney and Don Byrd.

When artists Shusako Arakawa and Madeline Gins set out to construct their “Lifespan Extending Villa,” Bioscleave House, artist Robert Bowen was inspired by their one-of-a-kind construction, to create his experimental documentary, The Long Island House. “Imagine a house that is an abstracted three-dimensional diagram of what a house might be,” Bowen writes. “Bioscleave is a perceptual research station built to study the relationship of the body to built architectural spaces.”

Bowen will discuss his work and Bioscleave’s lure of immortality with photographer and artist Bryan Whitney, whose work focuses on how we perceive and experience real space and ourselves, and cultural critic Don Byrd.

The event will take place on September 26th at 6:30. Program is free, but advance registration is recommended. Please click here to find out more information.
