With NPN’s support, Nina is developing It Will Not Be The Same, But It Might Be Beautiful. This multimedia project poetically explores how humans are implicated in the Anthropocene and are also tasked with moving towards a more holistic future. Through video installation and large-scale drawing, this investigation of change focuses on objects that have been exhausted by use and transformed by time. It Will Not Be The Same, But It Might Be Beautiful illuminates that what remains—even through environmental demise—can inspire wonder, help us understand the past, and embolden resilience in the future.
This exhibit comprises 7 drawings and a multichannel video. The drawings were made using wildfire charcoal, glacial silt, and industrial pulp mill waste. The video component was created in collaboration with Michael Conti. Participants in It Will Not Be The Same, But It Might Be Beautiful are:
