An exhibition called Developing Environmental Consciousness featuring snaps by the students of Penn State in Photography and the Environment course, will start from 29th April and will go on till 3rd May at Borland Gallery from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm from Monday to Friday. On 29th April, Mondy, there will also be a reception at the same place.
Photography and the Environment is actually an advanced pilot course taught by the assistant professor of art Katarin Parizek. The exhibit explores the environment for every personal artist involved. Developing Environmental Consciousness is unique as the multifariousness of students who are taking part in it, with each student aiming on a single project of his/her interest. Their target is to make the issues which they are photographing known in their local communities and around the campus.
Katarin Parizek told that the the photography class of twelve students was aimed on raising awareness of the old and historical problems referring environmental issues as well as the people impacted by the pollution and the environmental disasters in Pennsylvania as well as its surrounding regions. Through their snaps, the artists captured photographs which included not just people and places stirred by man’s exploitation of the earth, but how people are really working very hard to change with programs like the Living Filter Water Recycling Project, where hundred percent of Penn State treated waters get recycled.
Michelle Holt is a native of Toms River, New Jersey that was hit by Hurricane Sandy and her snap of the roller-coaster in water is one the many that show natural disasters’ environmental impact. She told that this is the reality. The hurricane did happen and it tore apart not only homes but lives as well.04.3.13
