Madeline Burton: Throw Caution to the Wind: Invisible Forces and Hidden Systems
Madeline Burton's (B.F.A. '12) thesis show is comprised of drawings that were created by attaching Sharpie pens to tree branches and letting the branches draw with the force of the wind. Nature is a powerful system in which every movement or event ripples out to effect the future of every other movement. While the butterfly effect caused by moments of chaos exists within all systems, it is most easily visible in the weather. The show investigates the invisible force of the wind continually flowing around us, attempting to create a physical representation of that movement and capturing moments in time that will affect the future of the world.
