On February 5th the opening reception of artist Lina Giraldo’s “Algorithmics” exhibit will take place in Babson College’s Hollister Gallery. Giraldo will discuss her work during an artist’s talk on at 5 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
Giraldo will be exhibiting her compelling video-works: Plus and Minus, Fractal Maps, Rain, and Dumping. Plus and Minus, a screen based interactive environment modeling system that shows world AIDS rates from 1990-2007, addresses political action (and inaction) as viewers make on-screen choices to potentially speed or slow the spread of the disease. Fractal Maps, shown in the picture below, a reinterpretation of land mass, reminds us of the constant mutability of geography. Rain, demonstrates the massive accumulation of discarded plastic bottles and paper cups that we produce through our consumption habits.
Lina Giraldo has shown in Boston, Bogota, and Santa Fe. Her work has been reviewed in the Boston Globe, The Phoenix, and ABC. Most recently, Lina Giraldo’s pieces Rain and Dumping were on display on the Boston Convention Center Screen.
Her gallery, “Algorithmics,” will be shown at Babson College from January 31-March 14th.
