A Studio In The Woods collaborated with artist Dawn DeDeaux to present Selections from the MotherShip Series as a P3+ Host Site at two locations from October 25, 2014 – January 25, 2015

DeDeaux is a professional New Orleans-based artist of national stature who can translate the complexities of science and sociology, turning data driven theories into iconic visual forms that speak to public audiences. DeDeaux’s work extends into community engagement and programming to further the outcome of public education and participation in challenges of the day.  Her work is supported both through traditional art foundations and through other underwriters in the fields of science and mental health.

“The sculptures and drawings on view are postulations of the future – influenced by collective mythologies that foretell of the future and the hard mathematical and scientific equations foretelling a future not so dissimilar from myth. Also considered is the work of Carl Jung, William Blake and others who have turned to dreams and symbols belonging to the collective subconscious as roadmaps toward the unknown.” Dawn DeDeaux
