Michael Oliveri at Lamar Dodd

Sublime landscape images by Michael Oliveri at the Lamar Dodd School of Art's main gallery.

These must be experienced in person, so if you live in Athens, please don't miss this show. They are huge (about 10' long) micrographs, digitally stitched together from multiple (FEI)field emission gun scans (more commonly known as (SEM)Scanning Electron Microscope scans). Close-up views of nano forms that so resemble landscapes or moonscapes, you'll expect to see the tail fins of a lunar lander in the corner. Michael is head of digital media at UGA, a designer with ADD (Athens Design Development) and is emerging as an important American artist in the field of digital media.
