Through the use of video, drawing, and sculpture, Scott Wolniak investigates visual systems and patterns that appear in our everyday environment. For this exhibition, the artist creates a “graphically patterned meadow” by collecting items such as wrappers, packaging, and straws found on the street as he walks from his West Side home to the MCA. Wolniak then reconfigures this debris into the forms of vegetation and weeds, drawing a connection between unwanted plants and the proliferation of postconsumer matter in our physical and psychological environments.
