Leviathan I: The Aesthetics of Capital
In Leviathan I: The Aesthetics of Capital, artist Pete Froslie transforms the Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Gallery into an experimental extension of his art studio. The exhibit will be on display through Dec. 29 at the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art. Froslie’s Leviathan series draws on his existing body of work exploring The Aesthetics of Capital, in which he uses chemical processes to extract rare earth metals from electronic waste as he seeks to answer the question, “How best can we see capital?” In Leviathan I, Froslie extends this work by exploring how capital can be seen and understood by integrating understandings of climate change, moral and political philosophy, philosophical aesthetics and demonology through the media of experimental electromechanics and game engine-based digital projection. The museum is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
