What Can We Make When We Can't Make War?

Research output: Non-textual formExhibition

Abstract

Cody Arnall and J. Eric Simpson exhibit their recent collaborative project <b>Isolated State</b> at CO-OPt : Research + Projects, Lubbock, TX. The installation, which takes the form of a corn-distributing deer feeder, explores the effects of industrial agriculture—its herbicide runoff, water irrigation, and physical encroachment—on playa lake ecosystems in the South Plains. Isolated State is accompanied by two other works: <b>Granddad’s Gimmie-Caps</b> by Simpson, and <b>Don’t Know About You but I’m Not Going Down With the Ship</b> by Arnall. Titled <b>What Can We Make When We Can’t Make War?</b>, the summation of the exhibition is haunting. It digs up the implications of the past and grapples with the fallout of the present—revealing the self-destructive tendencies in human behavior. Please join us for a conversation with Arnall and Simpson moderated by Natalie Hegert on January 23 at 7pm. (Also noted in Service/Engagement, Outreach and Engagement)
