DESCRIPTION

Following what for many is an onslaught of holiday consumption, we thought the time was perfect to break it down a bit –– our consumer culture that is. 

So, we bring you Second Nature, an unpacking of sorts. An unpacking of ideas around consumption and disposal, nature and culture, our world of today and what that world might look like in years to come. 

Artist Carrie Dickason, a graduate of Cranbrook Academy of Art, fills our little 900-sqaure-foot-store-front-turned-art-space with sculptures and drawings using many of the materials from our consumer society –– paper, plastic, carpet, wire, bags, tape and more. 

We’d like to add you. Dickason’s work explores the relationships between landscape, manufacturing, consumerism and waste. It’s inspired by a fascination with materials and a deep love of nature and systems. All that, and it’s beautiful too.

Second Nature opens with a party Saturday, January 14, 7-10 p.m. Refreshments provided courtesy of Traffic Jam & Snug Restaurant. The exhibition runs through February 25. Public Pool is open Saturdays from 1 to 6 p.m.
