An opening reception is 6-10 p.m., Saturday, July 7 at C-Art Studio. Studio hours are by appointment only.
The life-sized diorama presents the future in the past tense. Conventions of the Natural History Museum are utilized to create a cross-section of a time and place in the no-so-distant future.
Within the installation, the term "nuclear family" references the Westernized notion of the family unit, while simultaneously creating a commentary on the post-nuclear era.
