Exhibitions Moonrise by E Bobrow
October 9-November 3, 2019 Project Space Two
For their residency, E Bobrow plans to use slides from VSW’s archives, their family’s personal collection, and their collection from the Rochester Strasenburgh Planetarium dome shows to construct a series of images and artifacts conveying an imagined world through the language of science museum exhibits. These artifacts could include manuals, maps, slide viewing stations with augmented or fabricated slides, and small trinkets (made using 3d printers, laser cutters, and the machine shop available at the Rochester Makerspace). By appropriating institutional frameworks Bobrow aims to legitimize childhood fantasies as subject and object.
A Rochester native, E recently graduated from Washington University in St. Louis with a BA in Architecture, and minors in Computer Science and Design. Their studio practice combines model-making, drafting, collage, and computational design. Their primary focus is the intersection between analog and digital processes.
Support for this exhibition came from Max and Marian Farash Foundation, Joy of Giving Something, and the New York State Council on the Arts Visual Arts program.
