Listening to the Forest, Forest Science Complex, Peavy Hall, 2020, Leah Wilson
Arts-Sci at OSU will feature a discussion with Eugene artist Leah Wilson, a multi-media visual artist and writer in Eugene. Her presentation will focus on Listening to the Forest, her new installation in the atrium of the Peavy Hall in the Forest Science Complex
Listening to the Forest spans the scale of an old-growth tree from the cellular level, to one growing in the forest. The composition and color of the installation is based on the distinctions of the cellular structure of wood and the variances of light quality from forest canopy to forest floor. The installation creates a contemplative visual experience of light, color, shadow, and rhythm. Through the layered cut-outs, the experience of viewing the artwork changes based on the vantage point of the viewer and the quality of light from the windows in the atrium. The subtle shifts in composition, shadow, and color create an invitation to investigate the artwork further.
