Storm & Stress

June 8, 2018 - June 30, 2018

Media Arts Gallery

Displays of violent weather conditions, electrical storms, tornados, floods, fires, and other eruptions are contrasted and equated with equally awe-inspiring images of technology that harnesses or mimics nature. Pitting the specter of nature against technology in time-lapsed images, this stirring video paints a portrait of the encounter between the constructed and the natural, between human control of power and that which eludes man’s control.
