The MSU Department of Geography will highlight Geography Awareness Week on Wednesday, November 20 with an Inspirational Evening with Environmental Artist Chris Jordan. Chris Jordan is an acclaimed artist and cultural activist based in Seattle. His work explores contemporary mass culture from a variety of photographic and conceptual perspectives, connecting the viewer viscerally to the enormity and power of humanity's collective unconscious. Jordan's images edge-walk the lines between art and activism, beauty and horror, abstraction and representation, the near and the far, the visible and the invisible. His work asks us to look both inward and outward at the traumatized landscapes of our collective choices.
