Objects change through time. Documenting those changes can lead to patterns expressing a sense of beauty and calm when they are displayed. Some of them represent life and time metaphors. This is the art work of Cory Imig.
The UCM Gallery of Art & Design will exhibit the artwork of Cory Imig in Spring 2016. Her work takes the form of large- scale installations that document time and patterns. These installations are made using common everyday objects like wood, string, masking tape, and balloons.
