CINCINNATI (FOX 19) - The Art Academy of Cincinnati presents “SAVED,” an exhibition of installations, drawings and interactive elements by Debbie Brod, Kate Kern and Migiwa Orimo. The artists pose the question: “In a world of technological upheaval, what from the old world will be saved?” Each artist answers the question in her own way through art.
In this exhibition each artist uses a piece of communication technology from the recent past as a focal point for an installation. The phone booth, card catalog and typewriter still exist, but their once-central roles have been usurped by smart phones, search engines and personal computing devices.
The works presented share an exploration into the simultaneous inadequacy and necessity of language, as well as the use of a variety of high-tech and low-tech materials in a multi-media approach that is both conceptual and physical.
