Gelatin airplanes, topographic photography, and audio recordings are manifestations of San Diego-based artist Lael Corbin’s ongoing research into aesthetic and psychological dimensions of laboratories and workshops. Corbin has long been drawn to laboratories because they provide a launching pad for exploration, discovery, and contemplation.

In Corbin’s installations, elements commonly associated with geology, biology, and manufacturing processes merge with fragments of information, personal memory, and competing timelines. In Corbin’s laboratory, visitors encounter unfamiliar objects and processes, which may trigger questions regarding the conceptual intersections between art and scientific research.

Cerca Series: Lael Corbin is curated by MCASD Curator Dr. Robin Clark.
