Exhibit/Collection Name

Climate Change, MFA on Ice

Creation Date



This MFA Thesis exhibition by Christy Roberts, entitled Climate Change, MFA on Ice consisted of a synthetic ice skating rink in the gallery, with a video-projected changing climate and a soundtrack comprised of music made from nature samples. Visitors were able to check out skates at the concession stand and skate for as long as they liked.

Within the confines of the body there is a longing to connect. I believe that this is a longing to connect to place and often to the others who occupy it. When this longing is not satisfied, either by place or people, tension arises. I create experiences, images, and objects that explore the tension between the body and its social, physical, and natural environment.
