The School of Design is happy to welcome artist Jennifer Scheuer to the Louisiana Tech University campus. Scheuer will present a lecture in conjunction with a current show of her work in the School of Design Moffett Gallery.
Seeing and Healing
Artist Lecture by Jennifer Scheuer
Tuesday, 18 October at 5:00pm
FJ Taylor Visual Arts Center, Room 103
Artist’s statement about the exhibition:
Our minds seek to make connections, to categorize the familiar and the unfamiliar. In “Seeing and Healing” Jennifer Scheuer visualizes “The Doctrine of Signatures,” a theory that the world is made of signatures that can inform us how to heal our own bodies. Does categorizing the world in relationship to ourselves reflect a higher order, an illustration of biological structure, or simply mnemonics?
