VISA profs larger than life exhibit on now

An image from Elision, a new exhibit from visual arts professor Jean Bridge, is on now at the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre lobby.A visual arts professor’s latest exhibit offers new perspective on the everyday features of the streetscape that often go unnoticed.Jean Bridge’s Elision exhibit, on now in the Sean O’Sullivan Theatre lobby, is three large digital prints showing distorted and manipulated 3-D images of lamp posts and telephone poles, making them look more like nature than engineered objects.The largest image is 24 feet by 60 inches, giving viewers a unique perspective, Bridge explained.“People standing in front of the images will hopefully feel off kilter,” Bridge said. “The point of view of the image is from an extreme low angle and people will feel as though they’re looking up.”Bridge has been working on the exhibit since May with project intern Leonardo Veras Costa Sousa, a student in the Canada-Brazil Science without Borders scholarship program, and Justin Grossman, an interactive arts and sciences student.To see the images move from computer screen where they were created with 3-D computer modelling software to “larger than life is really thrilling,” she said.“We tested the images in small scale prints but nothing really prepares you for what they look like at large scale and outside the computer screen.”Elision is on until Friday, Dec. 5 with a reception set for Wednesday, Dec. 3 from 5 to 7 p.m. Admission to the exhibit is free. read more
