The Psychic Triangle

October 11 November 8, 2013

NURTUREart was pleased to present The Psychic Triangle, curated by Jessica Cannon, and featuring artists: Matthew Jensen, Kelly Lynn Jones, Jenn Kahn, Jeremy Miranda, Caleb Nussear, Joey Weiss, and Natalia Zubko. Through various forms of design such as object making, resource extraction, and designed systems of power, humans have assumed an outsize role in shaping the natural world while simultaneously awakening to a destructive aftermath.
The Psychic Triangle refers to the ambiguous territory between humans, the natural world, and the designed world. At a time when natural gas mining is causing small earthquakes and mechanical levees are promoted as a salve for rising tides, humans are caught in a strange paradox between dominance and vulnerability.
The artists in The Psychic Triangle are exploring the unfamiliar terrain where distinctions between nature and design dissolve into one another. From this uncertain place their diverse studio practices are mining a new consciousness; one that is defined by the inseparable coupling of power and anxiety.
