Comfortably Numb is an ongoing archive consisting of clippings from magazines and other printed matter. Over 2,000 framed images comprise this amalgam of sampled visual information functioning as detritus and fragments of data. The work explores our perceptual engagement with the incessant media overload that we seem to seek and endure.
Artist Nayda Collazo-Llorens, born in San Juan, Puerto Rico, is a visual artist engaged in a multi-disciplinary practice. Her work examines the way in which we perceive and process information, often dealing with navigation, memory, language, hyper-connectivity and noise. She has been the Stuart & Barbara Padnos Distinguished Artist-in-Residence in the Department of Art and Design at Grand Valley State University for the past three academic years. This exhibition serves as one of the culminating projects of her residency.
Free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Friday from 10 AM to 5 PM and Thursdays from 10 AM to 7 PM.
