Ana MacArthur: Where Light Meets Water; Mumuru on the Equator - T12a
June 27 -- July 31, 2009
Reception Saturday, June 27, 3-5pm

This exhibition features a scroll documentation of a two year portion of an extensive project focusing on the photosynthetic ingenuity of the victoria amazonica, the world's largest water lily from the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. From MacArthur's first encounter with this organism in the Amazon in 1993, her work with light has entered a chapter of deep engagement with photobiology and the equatorial zone of the Amazon Rainforest of Brazil. The entirety of the project explores this bio-region due to its being one of the most rich troves of biodiversity and its critical role in the stabilization of global climate.
