This Strange and Fleeting Moment by artist Rob Bolman
September 2 @ 5:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
The all too human enterprise called “civilization” will achieve sustainability whether we do it voluntarily or involuntarily.
Having helped pioneer green building throughout the 90’s, I’ve spent a loy of time pondering sustainability. Sustainability is not optional. Whatever we fail to do voluntarily , we WILL do involuntarily.
My art reflects what future generations will think of us. I see landfills as a sort of culmination of the Big Bang. Creation sprang into existence, biodiversity flourished, civilization brought us dizzying array of material diversity and then it all just sort of end up at the dump. Future archeologist will puzzle, “These people made many things and then threw them away…” My art is an exploration of this strange and fleeting moment in history.
