The Center for Fine Art Photography is pleased to announce, Thinning of Species, an exhibition. This art and science exhibition is a collaboration between the School for Global Environment Sustainability (SOGES) funded Global Challenge Research Team (GRCT), Crisis and Creativity, at Colorado State University, and The Center for Fine Art Photography.  The GCRT have created text-based artworks using an extinction algorithm developed by the team. This text applies the loss of species to iconic prose to illustrate and emphasize the ongoing crisis of species extinction. Alongside these text-based pieces are various works by photo-based artist, Alice Hargrave. Hargrave’s pieces from her series, Paradise Wavering, range from a 22-foot long and 10 feet tall silk image titled, The Biosphere, to framed images on the wall and a sound piece featuring the call of birds on the extinction list. Finally, a video piece titled, Lost, by Debora Bernagozzi is a double layered video exploring the feelings of loss and being lost.  All of these artworks engage in different ways with a world in crisis where the damages inflicted by human-caused global change are not merely facts and figures but are represented as a visceral experience that takes hold of the imagination, awakening a deeper engagement with need for solutions to obtain a healthy and sustainable relationship with the living earth.
