Zoom Out: Reflecting on the Digital Environment, Curated by Cecilia L. Vargas

Zoom Out: Reflecting on the Digital Environment is a group show of artworks that visualize and examine the digital. Featured artists include Evan Baden, Eric Fleischauer, Allison Grant, Emily Hermant and Christopher Meerdo. All of the works are either prints or drawings using approaches such as data visualization, photography, lithography, graphite rubbing, and hand drawn ink pen drawing.
