STRENGTHENING HUMAN-NATURE CONNECTIONS THROUGH DIGITAL-SCULPTURE RECONSTRUCTIONS OF BIOLOGICAL COMMUNITIES
An interactive and collaborative project including Brandon Gellis, Shelby Shadwell and Thomas Minckley
MicroEcos Series - the culmination of a two-year long exploration - of is a self-contained exhibition of 3D digital-reconstructions, laser cut vignettes, and video recordings, created to bring tactile and tangible scientific principles to art and humanities audiences. MicroEcos serves to strengthening and encourage human-nature connections. Harnessing 3D modeling and printing technology MicroEcos will take form as a series of 3D printed models of the Last Canyon rock shelter sites, near the Wyoming and Montana border and Little Windy Hill pond site in Wyoming’s Medicine Bow National Forest. This series provides audiences with glimpses of two- and three-dimensional historical environments, and create dialogue of how local ecosystems have been formed.
