Julia Christensen, Eva & John Young-Hunter Professor of Integrated Media, will discuss her artworks The Tree of Life and Burnouts, both on view at the Allen this fall. Burnouts is an installation of obsolete iPhones displaying animations of “obsolete” constellations in the night sky. The Tree of Life is Christensen’s ongoing project creating a global network of living terrestrial trees that communicate with a spacecraft orbiting Earth for a duration of 200 years. Christensen will discuss her interdisciplinary process regarding the works on view, which include photography, sound, animation, sculpture, and installation.
