Going the Distance: Communication Towers
by  Maureen Calkins
 "Communication towers hover high above the landscape: unseen frequencies are made visible with lines that appear to pulsate and move in all directions throughout this work. The need to communicate drives scientists and technologists to continually design innovative and faster systems. High tech communication is vital to financial, political and social institutions. I question the technology and how it affects our lives, what impact it has world wide and how we can control it, adjust to the constant changes or simply ignore it. By painting about communication towers and energy fields, I am opening up a discussion about the role communication plays in our lives."

Opening September 7th at 7pm
Xchanges Gallery hours Sat/Sun 12-4pm
Exhibition runs until Sept 30th
