Recycle, Repurpose and the Meaning of Materials - a short presentation
December 17, 2014
During the first nights of Hanukkah, I'd like to share this lecture that I gave at The Magnes Collection about four Hanukkah menorahs in their collection.
The goal is to share insights that anyone can use when viewing artwork in an exhibition, or working from the perspective as an artist or maker developing their own work.
The concept of "The Meaning of Materials" is an important consideration that will be explored further in future posts.
Watch Recycled, Repurpose and the Meaning of Materials directly on YouTube. You are welcome to share or embed this lecture.
