MFA Thesis Exhibitions, Class of 2021 - Ivy Guild

The Keeling 

keel (v): to fall over, collapse, or capsize 
Keeling Curve (n): a daily record of global atmospheric carbon dioxide concentration maintained by Scripps Institution of Oceanography at UC San Diego (keelingcurve.ucsd.edu)
The Keeling (2021) is an amalgamation of aloe corpses with steel prosthetics, speculative organisms, and contemporary fossils. The works in the exhibition probe the pre-PTSD of the Sixth Great Extinction and the artifacts we may leave in our wake as a ruinous race.
