Boston-based artist Georgie Friedman premiers her site-specific video installation designed for Holy Cross with an artist’s reception in the Spillane Pavilion of the Integrated Science Complex. The video installation, “Under the Icy Sky,” re-contextualizes natural elements in relationship to the architecture of the science complex.
In an interview with Boston’s NPR news station WBUR, Friedman said that Worcester’s record snowfall enhanced the effect of her installation. “Overall, I want viewers, especially people on the campus who frequent this area everyday, to gain a new perspective of a familiar space, a new awareness of their everyday surroundings — and, ideally, to contemplate their relationships to the natural, built and technology-created environments.”
