Out of the Blue
By: Maurice Ehichioya
“Out of the Blue” is a unique art exhibition that features work created by students in Professor Zimmer’s Digital Photography class and Dr. Yukevich’s Technical Communication class. Each piece is printed with a dark blue background, and it portrays distinctive images in white that blend into a light blue finish. They are printed on rectangular paper and accompanied by a poetic quote from the student in the technical communications class. These pieces engross the viewer at first glance, due to the art’s captivating style, which resembles a cyanotype, a 9th century photographic process. Although they all have the same background color, each student created their pieces in such a way that makes them individually unique; every image depicts either a specific, abstract, or imaginative perspective, which captures the very essence of the individuality they possess. As an artist myself, I can say that this form of artistry harnesses the awe inspired from admirable artwork. This unique collaboration has resulted in a spontaneous exhibition displayed throughout Taylor Hall. The student’s artwork was exhibited from September 27th to October 4th. Look for more art in Taylor Hall and around campus in the coming months!
