Our summer suite of exhibitions features three instal lations\, highlighting the many forms of the classical element water: froz en across the expansive and rocky terrain of the Perito Moreno glacier in Argentina\; implied in a colony of 450 mechanized\, interactive penguins\; and free-flowing in a 10-foot-tall digital waterfall!\n<strong><em>Elemen ts of Nature: Water</em></strong>\nThe second part of our summer exhibitio ns\,<em>Elements of Nature: Water</em>\, &nbsp\;presents a&nbsp\;10-foot v ideo projection of a waterfall (pictured at left) by the Japanese ultra-te chnologist group\, teamLab\, titled&nbsp\;<em>Universe of Water Particles< /em>. Informed by the tradition of ancient Japanese Art\,&nbsp\;<em>ukiyo- e</em>&nbsp\;woodblock prints\, and contemporary forms of anime\, the Univ erse of Water Particles demonstrates teamLab&rsquo\;s keen interest in the transcendental qualities of water and the combination of both two and thr ee-dimensional space in digital form. Exhibited alongside selections of Th e Dayton Art Institute&rsquo\;s strong collection of Edo period&nbsp\;<em> ukiyo-e</em>&nbsp\;woodblock prints\, visitors will see a source of great influence alongside the morphing beauty of the immersive waterfall and be able to explore the associated pioneering and intellectual concepts of the se technologists at work\, as well as the mesmerizing innovative capabilit ies at play.\n<a title="Water in Japanese Art" href="http://www.daytonarti" >Related Focus Exhibition:&nbsp\;<em>Water in Japanese Art</em></a>\n<em>E lements of Nature: Water&nbsp\;</em>also features&nbsp\;a single\, monumen tal photograph by Berlin-based artist Frank Thiel of the Perito Moreno gla cier. Thiel created large-format images to capture the immense scale of th e 18-mile-long by three-mile-wide formation - located in the Los Glaciares National Park in Patagonia\, Argentina - which is one of the few glaciers in the world that is growing. Thiel&rsquo\;s large-scale photograph recal ls the sublime landscapes painted by members of the Hudson River School\, which frequently represented the powerful drama and overwhelming scale of nature and human&rsquo\;s small place within that terrain. Similarly\, the monumentality of Thiel&rsquo\;s photograph places the viewer in a related context and invites them to question the transient nature of what is arou nd them\, while also providing the opportunity to discuss the fragility of man in the face of nature&rsquo\;s awesome might and simultaneously empha sizing man&rsquo\;s hubris and determination.\n\nMuseum Members: Free\nAdu lts: $14\nSeniors (60+): $11\nStudents (18+ w/ID): $11\nActive Military: $ 11\nGroups (10 or more): $11\nYouth (ages 7-17): $6\nChildren (6 &amp\; un der): Free\n DTSTAMP:20231129T062008Z SUMMARY:The Antarctic Sublime &amp\; Elements of Nature: Water URL:/en/events/2016/07/16/the-antarctic-sublime-elements-of-nature-water/ END:VEVENT END:VCALENDAR
