Sandra Ramos: Entropydoscopes

Sandra Ramos works in a range of media, including painting, printmaking, collage, video, and installation-based work. As both an artist and an independent curator, she is interested in wide-ranging concepts, from cultural identity and migration to social media. For Entropydoscopes, Ramos created light boxes featuring kaleidoscopic videos composed of images that are personally meaningful to her. Some elements have recognizable details, others are completely distorted. As a result, viewers catch glimpses of the artist's memories through entropy (a state of disorder), transforming her kaleidoscopic cylinders into channels to an uncertain realm.  

Lowe Creative Projects invites site-specific installations by emerging and mid-career artists to foster creativity and experimentation. One of the benefits of activating this space is that the art can be seen by all passersby, day, and night. The public can also view the progression of each installation, inviting them into a process that is more typically hidden.  

Sandra Ramos: Entropydoscopes was curated by Lance Fung and Lowe Curator, Caitlin Swindell. 


This project was made possible by the Linnie E. Dalbeck Memorial Foundation.
