The Speed of Light: Lisa K. Blatt and Christina Seely

The David Brower Center’s first show of 2015 features the work of photographers Lisa K. Blatt and Christina Seely. Their artworks explore the impacts of human civilization through two elements so essential to our existence that we often overlook their importance: light and time. Through beautiful images taken from all over the world, audiences are invited to consider the artificial light of cities and the energy required to produce it, the effects of climate change on natural rhythms, and human society’s increasingly delicate balance with the environment.

The Brower Center has developed a programming series inspired by the artists’ consideration of our relationship to the earth’s systems. With artist talks, documentary films, panel discussions, and a daylong Earth Day festival, we examine environmental and social issues from a generational, rather than immediate, perspective.
