Wednesday, September 13,1 pm Zoom Lecture with Clarissa Callesen, Sculptor, installation artist, Instructor, and Creative coach.

Clarissa Callesen executes personal and community-based installations and sculptures, constructed of knotted, recycled discarded domestic textiles. “I work primarily with postconsumer recycled materials. Everything has been discarded from its original owner or is a by-product of organic or industrial production. I am fascinated by the history and energy of objects, particularly found objects. I am less concerned with an object’s original purpose and more interested in the evidence of life a thing wears upon the surface. We all interact with hundreds of objects and materials every day whether they are adored treasures or complete throwaways. Our lives are interconnected with this commonplace matter.”
