Matt Kenyon, guest speaker

New media sculptor, Matt Kenyon, gave a fascinating lecture on his internationally acclaimed work, exhibited and collected worldwide by institutions such as the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

One of the things he did was created a legal tablet that had the names of Iraqi civilians who had died printed microscopically to produce the lines of the paper. He gave everyone in attendance a sheet, so we could all peer at it up-close and see it was true.

My favorite story was how he created a sculpture of oil cans eternally spilling oil and for some odd reason an oil company rented the piece for an event.
