SEPTEMBER 28–JANUARY 16, 2010

Pellucid by Boulder-based artist Rebecca DiDomenico was a site-specific installation featuring a gallery transformed into a fantastical cave designed as an immersive environment. Visitors were invited to walk through the space, filled with 60,000 hand-made mica scales and dangling stalactites. Pressed into each of the scales were jewel-like butterfly wings and brightly colored pieces of plastic trash. For DiDomenico, the wings and the trash meet at the junction of the ephemeral and physical worlds. The butterflies quite literally turn into dust when they are touched. But the plastic is ubiquitous, unable to decompose, with its abundance transforming it into a feature of the natural world.

 

Rebecca DiDomenico was born in Greenbrae, California. Her work has been exhibited at the Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art, the San Francisco Craft and Folk Art Museum, and the Denver Art Museum, among others. She lives and works in Boulder, Colorado.

Pellucid was presented in the Project Gallery from September 28, 2010 through January 16, 2010. The opening celebration was held on Friday, October 1, 2010.
