Energy: Made in Form is inspired by San Diego State University’s current campus-wide Common Experience theme “Experience Energy”. From 19th century technology to handmade craft and the fantasy of science fiction, the exhibition explores the intangible concept of energy, visualized through the creative process. Varying approaches examine the amount of energy required in creating art, energy as a social issue and energy as a state of being. Made in Form brings together works by SDSU School of Art + Design students and faculty with regional artists from California and Arizona.
