    Alexandria Searls gives us a fish’s perspective, using her underwater camera to capture, from below, the wayfaring leaves, feathers, seed pods and other chance floating travelers of our local waterways. Altering the viewer’s sense of reality through the aqueous medium via an upward trained lens, unexpected water and light patterns, suspended particulate, and drifting elements of nature caught in moving current and surface tension are captured. Occasionally Searls’ shots absorb the skies beyond the water’s surface in a luminous aureole, or silhouette the shadowy form of a low hanging tree.

    Morgan McLeod is presenting Harmoniai, a generative music installation, created from water-themed field recordings at Sugar Hollow, the Rivanna, and elsewhere, capturing the varied atmospheric sounds of moving water, rain, wind and wildlife, and mixing it texturally with other melodic fragments, keeping the technology world at arm’s length. viewer’s sense of reality through the aqueous medium via an upward trained lens, unexpected water and light patterns, suspended particulate, and drifting elements of nature caught in moving current and surface tension are captured.
