Multi-media artist Tara Carpenter straddles the boundary between psychology, sociology, and art, and asks the viewer to become a participant in the visual art process. Each work in the show asks the viewer to respond to the question “What is art to you?” in an interactive way. Using clay, string, and viewers’ response to this question, her exhibition showcases the many ways art can be created and interpreted. Carpenter explores the idea of what makes “Art” through several different lenses: price, permanency, materials, labeling, artist statements, and opinions. She connects those responses into a visual installation that blurs the lines of art and science.
