24 Frames Poetry Session: "Gun Wishes,"
The piece, which plays on Lubbock's history of wind and aviation mixed with the artist's personal interest in science fiction, is composed of a variety of material including souvenir t-shirts, acting as the "skin" of the structure. The juxtaposition inspired de Anda to deem the term, "mutant practices," referring to the multitude of techniques and materials used in the work.
On Friday, September 22, from 3-6 p.m., the hanging sculpture will be showcased in in the Human Sciences Building, room 169. The afternoon will include a talk by the artist, followed by a reception. This event is free and open to the public.
