Slow Onset Events
February 11-still up....
Opening February 11, 9:00-10:00
hours by appointment 


 Slow Onset Events is an umbrella term for slow-acting climate change effects such as "sea level rise, increasing temperatures, ocean acidification, glacial retread and related impacts, salinization, land and forest degradation, loss of biodiversity and desertification."1 Through poetic sleight of hand, the work in this exhibition exemplifies the fear surrounding climate change while also offering a psychological-cum-superstitious solution for said fear
