Clemson University in Greenville, SC, Features Works by Molly C. Morin and Stephen Wolochowicz

Clemson University in Clemson, SC, is presenting Red Balloons, featuring works by Molly C. Morin and Stephen Wolochowicz, on view at the Clemson University Center for Visual Arts in Greenville, SC, through Mar. 31, 2014. A reception will be held on Mar. 13, beginning at 6pm.

Morin uses digital methods, including computer coding, 3D modeling, and digital photo-editing to produce work that explores the difficult relationship between information and meaning. Morin’s projects visualize data sets generated from a wide range of sources, from poetry to text messages, and reflect on the impact of communication technology on daily life.

Wolochowicz’s current work utilizes abstract industrial shapes with organic features. Through the use of vivid color and texture, he adds a playful aesthetic to his underlying concepts. They deal with the human invention, environment and progress through networks of industrial themes.

This exhibit will also feature interactive collaborative works by Morin and Wolochowicz that are programmed to visually respond to human activity in a way that encourages users to engage their bodies and voices.

Molly Morin is Assistant Professor at Weber State University in Ogden, UT. She received her MFA from Clemson University and her BFA from The University of Notre Dame. Her digital prints, animations, and sculptures have been exhibited in solo and small group shows at Art Centers, University Galleries and Regional Museums across the US. She has worked with the Notre Dame Digital Visualization Theater and the Center for Research Computing to produce code-based work, and is currently collaborating with contemporary poets for the digital project.

The University of Central Missouri, and Central Michigan University. He holds a BFA from the University of Delaware and a MFA from Miami University in Ohio.
