TONY 2012: An Evening with Video Artist Tammy Brackett
The SUArt Galleries is pleased to host TONY 2012: An Evening with Video Artist Tammy Brackett on Thursday, Oct. 4, at
6 p.m. in 001 Life Sciences Building at Syracuse University. This event is free and open to the public.
Tammy Brackett is one of eight featured artists in the exhibition The Other New York installed at the SUArt Galleries. Her video installation, “Field Guide,” explores the reorganization of scientific language. The natural world is digitally recreated using text and sound from “Peterson’s Field Guide to Birds of North America,” and the journal The Philosophy of Science. Brackett develops an immersive experience using fragments of pages from these texts to create a virtual walk through a woods, while exploring the sights and sounds found there.
