THIS BECOMES THAT exhibition documentation

What do cassette tapes, plastic water bottles, denim scraps, old television sets, house paint and wine corks have in common? They can all be recycled into sustainable new materials! The CCA Materials Library is proud to highlight a selection of sustainable materials that are predominantly manufactured from recycled content. With the increasing awareness and urgency of climate change, sustainable materials and processes are now more necessary than ever. Each material sample is displayed with things that are recycled in order to create the new material.

SOIL to STUDIO exhibition documentation

Sasha Duerr’s Soil to Studio course introduces ideas of Slow Textiles, Slow Fashion, and plant-based color using the Oakland Campus’ Community Garden as its source of materials and inspiration. Her work combines a celebration of culture, ethnobotany, creative reuse, sustainability, and an innate sense of place. The garden, founded in 2009 by Susanne Cockrell (Community Arts) and Sasha Duerr (Textiles), grows an abundance of plants for community and curriculum uses; Including edible, medicinal, and pollinator plants on the Oakland Campus. Many of these plants grown have dye and fiber producing byproducts. Students from Soil to Studio helped to harvest the plants and dye the materials for this display, and for the Material Library’s collection. Additional colors were obtained from plants growing throughout the Oakland Campus. A Dye & Fiber Seed Library, initially started in a collaboration between Permacouture Institute and Soil to Studio in 2010- was given a finished home in 2016 in a project created by CCA O…

(Site) Specificity II exhibition documentation

The CCA Fall 2016 Library Exhibition program presents the work of Prima Sakuntabhai (MFA '17) at the Meyer Library on Oakland's campus. The work on view combines image, text, and ephemera collected during the artist’s time at the SOMA SUMMER 2016 artist residency in Mexico City. Prima spent two months this past summer in residence at SOMA SUMMER in dialogue with a community of international artists and contemporary art practitioners from Mexico City. The conceptual foundations of architecture and ruin are critical to the narratives Prima constructs. Layering of image, text, and oration are fused in the artist's practice with auto-topographic storytelling, while simultaneously making visible the erasure of cultural histories in Mexico City through the construction of site. The re-framing of 70's vernacular architecture, by visualizing the stylistic appropriation of Mayan Aztec motifs by European Art Deco in (Site) Specificity II, reveals a transparency in cultural boundaries that are open and closed.
