Dissembled Dissertations

June 1 - 16, 2018

A Collaboration with Freda-Lee McCann

A mathematician and a chemist walk into a gallery...

They decide to make art by sharing pages from their doctoral dissertations.

Freda Lee-McCann is atheoretical mathematician.  Her language is equations.

Langley Spurlock is an organic chemist. His language is molecular structures.

They are artists but neither understands the symbols of the other's language. The scripts in their dissertations are mutually incomprehensible.

The works in this show celebrate the adventures of communication and collaboration between two artists with different educational backgrounds and different approaches to artisticexpression.
