Visualizing Difference: Birds of a Feather
Hartnett Gallery @ The University of Rochester
Video and Sculpture Installation by Meg Mitchell
January 27 – February 27, 2011
Hartnett Gallery is pleased to announce the exhibition Visualizing Difference: Birds of a Feather, a video and sculpture installation by artist Meg Mitchell that will be on display January 27th through February 27th.
In Visualizing Difference: Birds of a Feather, Mitchell investigates the relationships between science, information technology, and the natural world by mapping avian genome data as spiraling sculptural forms. She uses custom software to interpret and re-present the genetic sequences of various bird species, illustrating the similarities in the data despite the visual and morphological differences between the birds.
