Polyflora: Emily Ritter
Polyflora is an exploration of a possible future where plastics have fused with organic matter, creating hybrid species that have replaced the life we know today. This new environment embodies the planet’s rebirth from ecological distress. Ritter’s thesis exhibition focuses on the movement, shape, and substance of the soft plastics that have become so ubiquitous in our environment. By creating beautiful, highly detailed forms that mimic plants from this discarded material, she brings attention to the impact of consumption, waste and its toxicity to our environment.
A multimedia group exhibition featuring visual art made of, ruminating on, rallying against, siding with, excoriating, etc. the human phenomenon we call "trash."

Ritter, Annalibera, Dave Dugan, Hannah Secord Wade, Dennis Kowalski, Julia J. Wolfe, Anna Tea, Crisia Miroiu, Taylor Yocom, Mustard-in-Law, and Jack Dugan
