Clarksville, TN – On Earth Day, April 22nd, environmental artist Eliza Evans will be on the Austin Peay State University (APSU) campus from 9:00am-4:00pm to perform a reiteration of her piece Time Machine, a duration and interactive work where she will spend several hours “living” in a mass-produced greenhouse on the lawn of the Arts Quad.
The performance is a collaboration between Austin Peay State University’s art and design and nursing programs. Nursing students from Dr. Kim French’s community health nursing class will monitor, record, and display Evans’ vitals during the performance, giving visitors a visualization of the toll that increasing global temperatures have on the human body.
The event, which is free and open to the public, is sponsored by the APSU Department of Art + Design with support from The APSU Center of Excellence for the Creative Arts.
Visit Evans’ website to learn more about her work.
