Landmarks at UT Austin Announces New Public Art Commission by Beth Campbell
Brandon Zech, Glasstire, 10 March 2019
"The graphite drawing component of the work, which is from Ms. Campbell’s ongoing series, My Potential Future Based on Present Circumstances, presents possible outcomes — some logical and some absurd — of everyday situations. The work’s second component, a mobile made of steel rods and wires, mimics the forms of Ms. Campbell’s drawings, and also shares visual similarities with veins and nerves winding through the human body."
More public art headed to Dell Medical School
Jeanne Claire van Ryzin, Sightlines, 6 March 2019
"For the Dell Medical School commission, Campbell’s drawing makes parallels to spontaneous cognition, a newly developing branch of cognitive psychology that explores the random and involuntary thoughts that individuals have about their future. The twisted steel wire mobile that accompanies Campbell’s drawing mimics the complex structure of the human nervous system — and the complex structure of social networks."
