An interdisciplinary / intermedia exploration of water issues and interior waterways broadly, with content that draws upon pop cultural, scientific and literary references and merges these with sound, movement, image and sculptural objects. The result is an assemblage of discursive and immersive, lyrical and interpretive perspectives on water. The artists encourage serious consideration and thoughtful involvement with the work presenting complex topics with a sense of beauty, theatricality, humor, and a reserved optimism. The exhibition will include a multimedia visual arts installation with soundscapes and video, sound animation graphics and photography, large scale transparencies on light boxes, and live performance and dance.
The Lead Artist / Investigator for the exhibition is Marguerite Perret, Assoc. Professor and the Interim Chair of the Art Dept. at Washburn University.

Eleanor Goudie-Averill, Lawrence, Kansas
