"Rate of Recharge/ Rate of Erosion"
June 3 - June 25 2011
John F. Lott Gallery
New works in this show by Szu-Han Ho are analog models of systems of discharge and recharge. They speak to the interconnections between human-made and natural systems, as well as to the relationship between geographic place and personal attachment. Bodies, like all natural systems, require nourishment, nurture, and recharge––and these requirements are often counterbalanced by constraints upon resources due to scarcity, pressure, and contamination. Our relationship with these resources, both collectively and individually, exists somewhere between straining and supporting, draining and flourishing, exhaustion and conservation.
