Cathedrals is a site-specific, multi-sensory installation by San Francisco Bay-area artist, Jeff Ray. The exhibition continues Ray’s exploration of the intersection between nature and architecture. He reimagines familiar surroundings and structures such as cathedrals and coastal bunkers as monuments, taking us on a journey from reality to imagination. Cathedrals pairs photographic and video works with original music compositions by Jeff Ray, in collaboration with the SDSU Composition Laboratory, under the direction of Professor Joseph Waters, Ph.D., coordinator of Composition Studies (Acoustic & Electro-Acoustic) in the School of Music and Dance.

Cathedrals is organized by the SDSU Downtown Gallery. The exhibition and events are sponsored by the San Diego State University Art Council. Additional support is provided by the School of Art + Design, the College of Professional Studies and Fine Arts, the fund for Instructionally Related Activities, and Arts Alive SDSU.

SDSU Downtown Gallery Event

February 4 through March 27, 2016

Energy: Made in Form Logo
Energy: Made in Form Logo

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.
