Bound Together: Art and Chemistry…

Sunday, November 22, 2009 @ 3:00 PM-4:30 PM

Featured Speaker: Anne Moody, Ph.D., Professor of Chemistry, Truman State University

Take a look at art through the lens of science with Truman State University Chemistry Professor, Dr. Anne Moody, as she presents a unique perspective of Philadelphia-based fiber artist, Mi-Kyoung Lee’s Bound Lines. Bound Lines is Ms. Lee’s “portrait of her recent awareness of human connections as a mother.” Connecting organic and synthetic materials with repetitive knotting and mark-making, her work reflects the complexity of human life. “Each form,” she says, “consists of many cellular lines and textures like human skin and natural surfaces. Microscopic images are reflected in the construction of these objects.”

Dr. Moody looks at the artist’s chosen materials and the theme of repetition within the work to delve into the molecular-level repetition of those materials—hair/wool/silk, cotton/paper, and the synthetic polymers used in pipe cleaners. She brings into focus, the repeating molecular-level connections that link to make the artist’s materials and talks about how these unseen connections are made observable in Mi-Kyoung Lee’s Bound Lines. It’s a singular opportunity to enjoy art from both an aesthetic and scientific viewpoint in this Sunday afternoon Art and Science gallery talk.
