CITY SIGHTS: Finding the science-art in New York area art exhibitions

"Pollination," a solo exhibition by Kelly Heaton
Artist Kelly Heaton, wielding a BA from Yale and MS from MIT, mergers science, art, and spirituality in this solo exhibition on view until October 24th. Playful yet thoughtful, her pieces have a delightful complexity that begs the viewer to spend a little bit longer looking than many gallery show works. Touching upon themes including colony collapse disorder, the anthropocene, and how technology has infested the human life like a disease, the gallery buzzes, hisses, and whirs from the kinetic mechanisms embedded in many of the works. Tying together the entire generous space of the gallery is yellow 'pollen' piled in the corner here, and on the radiator over there, elevating the show above a typical hung-on-the-wall or arranged-on-the-floor aesthetic into one that like bees, and disease, is a bit more invasive.
