Plume Age ~ A Solo Exhibition by Dylan J. Beck

Exhibition Dates: 5 April 2013–17 May 2013

Closing Reception: Friday, 17 May 2013, 6–9 pm


In our ever growing and strangely shrinking contemporary world it has become commonplace to travel great distances in a matter of hours. What has made this shrinking of the globe possible is air travel. In the United States alone, there are nearly 87,000 commercial flights per day! Consequently, at any given moment there is an overwhelming number of airplanes, full of people, in the skies above our heads.

Dylan J. Beck has been exploring air travel and its potential effects on climate and culture. In his exhibition, Plume Age, Dylan looks to flight patterns and densities, land use associated with the air travel infrastructure, and the sky to find inspiration for his sculptures. Because his work includes various approaches and media, from hand-built ceramics to digital imagery, Dylan Beck's exhibition at VERTIGO Art Space is visually striking as well as contemplative.
