Extreme Materials and Conditions: Common Ground between Art and Science by Jay Gould, 2017 HEMI/MICA Extreme Arts Program Artist in Residence

A capstone exhibition of works developed over a one-year residency with the Hopkins Extreme Materials Institute

Milton S. Eisenhower Library, Q Level
3400 N. Charles St.
Baltimore, MD 21218

Exhibition: April 3 – May 19, 2017

Extreme is a word often used to consider the outermost limits. We strive to find the boundaries of our existence, yet we assume that those bounds can always be pushed further. This exhibition of photographs and sculptural works uses analogy and storytelling to playfully describe how HEMI is pushing the extreme boundaries of materials, time, and scale through their research. The audience is invited to consider the imagination required to observe and test a world that is so far beyond our given, natural senses.
