Kait Rhoads, Wandering Diatoms

Kait describes her work Wandering Diatoms by saying "These scale morphed phytoplankton (planktos, the Greek word meaning wanderer or drifter) have appeared in the trees to remind us of their life sustaining powers of oxygen production, similar to the trees, but more ephemeral in their life span and sensitivity to environmental imbalance. As people walk past the work, they will look up and discover this incongruous sight of this microalgae out of the water."

J. Adam Brinson, Tense Balance

Adam, a graphic designer, was inspired by line, color and shape to transform the façade of the Fischer Pavillion, with a colorful geometric pattern. The artwork, Tense Balance, is also illuminated by LED lights in the evening.
