Woodcut prints by College of Fine Arts alumna Naoko Matsubara and several large GigaPan prints from the juried exhibit at last year's Fine International Conference on Gigapixel Imagery for Science will be placed on permanent display in the Gates and Hillman centers.
A reception and walking tour to celebrate the newly installed pieces, "Panoramics and Precision," will be from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 19, beginning at the main reception desk on the 5th floor, adjacent to the door to the Pausch Bridge.
Matsubara's "Solitude," a series of woodcuts inspired by Henry David Thoreau's "Walden," have been mounted in the 5200 corridor. The noted artist, who studied here as a Fulbright Scholar, donated the woodcuts to the university in 1994.
A 23-foot-wide print of Stephanie Jenouvrier's GigaPan image, "Penguins at Cape Crozier," is displayed in the 5th floor corridor between the Dean's office and the elevators. Displayed on the 6th floor, across from the elevators, is a print of Molly Gibson's "Barnacle," an image created with a scanning electron microscope modified with GigaPan technology.
A 6-foot-wide GigaPan print of "Eagle's Nest, Jubbah, Saudi Arabia," by Richard Bryant is located outside of the 8206 project room and an 8-foot-wide print of "Bergamot and Hummingbirds, Vermont," by Chris Fastie is on display in the 9100 hallway.
The pieces were selected by the GHC Art Committee, which is chaired by Charlotte Yano and includes Jim Skees, Guy Blelloch, Roger Dannenberg, Carlos Guestrin, Bob Bingham, Golan Levin, and Sue Ann Hong.
Three additional GigaPans from the Fine Conference are on display in Newell-Simon Hall. Jason Buchheim's "Galapagos Bait Ball of Salema"and Rurik List's "From Sierra de en Medio," are in the NSH 4200 corridor and "The Big Four," by Andrew R. Deans and Matthew A. Bertone, is mounted in an alcove near the Robotics Institute director's office.
