Emily Clayton is a Chicago based artist whose sculptural works interpret ghostly forms.
Sad Cycle includes works that are inspired by death rituals. The exhibition is part of a larger series that seeks to examine ways in which people grieve through a lens of palpably dramatic forms and performance. The pieces shown at Eastern Expansion were created in the past three months and reflect an intimate focus on material and a process-driven sculptural practice.
Inspired by artists and designers who use available analog and digital tools to communicate complex data from the everyday to the very obscure, we present this project as an homage to our love for data visualization... A selection of works from around the world take form in installations, a publication library, interactive projects, and infographics. The show will be viewable for TWO DAYS only. (Friday Dec 10 8pm - 1am and Saturday Dec. 11 2-9pm)
