On view thru January 2024, the latest “Eye on Art” project is designed to demonstrate the importance of cross-disciplinary connections when fostering innovation. Two site-specific window installations are now on view at Ion District:
“Creation, Current, Solution” by Kill Joy is an animated puppet installation exploring how to advance as a global community as seen through the lens of Pilipino folklore. Kill Joy’s work is grounded in honoring the earth and seeking environmental and social justice. Her work is an interpretation of world mythology and a study of ancient symbols. She integrates storytelling with calls to global, mental, physical, emotional, spiritual and awareness and action.
“The SpLaVCe Program” by Christopher Blay displays canvases and wood frames to create an innovative, cohesive piece created in collaboration with the Ion Prototyping Lab that combines elements of slaving vessels and spaceships into one object, symbolizing where the Black community has been and where they are going.
