Beetle | Book | Bark
Smathers Library Gallery
January 9 – March 10, 2017
Beetle | Book | Bark, reflects upon the beetles themselves, their destructive capacity, and the art they unintentionally create. It includes original works of art that incorporate large-scale, high-resolution images of the beetles juxtaposed with their three dimensional habitats and rare volumes featuring stylized and scientific representations of bark beetles, displaying how the concepts such as scientific accuracy, imagination, and design evolved through the ages.

The works on display in Book STEAM demonstrate the artists’ interpretations of the basic nature of our existence via literal and figurative translations of scientific concepts. They may or may not be “true” in a scientific sense, but these books make us feel something. Who can argue that is not just as important as a technological advance?
