MICHIGAN TECH ART PRESENTS
Me, You, and Us
MONDAY, FEBRUARY 6, 2023 THROUGH SATURDAY FEBRUARY 25, 2023
A-SPACE HOURS: M-F 8 A.M.-8 P.M. | SA 1-8 P.M.
Driven by themes of introspection, memory, and human connection, together we’ve created a series inspired by different experiences in our own lives that we feel are more universal than subconsciously realized. We all share a desire to bring people together to reflect on things that shaped us throughout our lives; imagery from childhood, our present lives, and where we imagine the future will go. At a major transitional period of our lives, we find ourselves looking back to who we were, looking at who we are now, and dreaming about who we want to be. These snippets from our lives are an opportunity to see our reflections, you looking at it, and us looking at it together as we grow to understand each other a little bit better.
