Dissolve II: Melissa Smith
The exhibition examined the pteropod (sea butterfly) which is threatened by the increasingly acidic southern waters. Combining contemporary and traditional printmaking techniques, the works reflected on connections in the arts and science in the pursuit of understanding our changing environment.
