The Art Academy of Cincinnati presents Saved, an exhibition of installations, drawings and interactive elements by Debbie Brod, Kate Kern and Migiwa Orimo. The artists posed the question: "In a world of technological upheaval , what from the old world will be saved?" Each artist answers the question in her own way through art.
In this exhibition each artist uses a piece of communication technolgy from the recent past as a focal point for an installation. The phone booth, card cataolg and typewriter still exist, but their once-central roles have been usurped by smart phones, search engines andpersonal computing devices.
The works presented share an exploration into the simultaneous inadequacy and necessity of language, as well as the use of a variety of high-tech and low-tech materials in a multi-media approach that is both conceptual and physical. The exhibit will include a project inviting the participation of the Art Academy community and others.
