Arnold is inspired by nature and how we perceive it. He is especially interested in the way scientific tools and techniques enhance and frame knowledge acquisition and how
the presentation of data and information influences aesthetics and visual perception.
The work included in the exhibition, Dark Nebula, consists of photographs of a
meteor shower overlaid with cyanotypes of pine cones, meant to represent a series of
constellations as a non-luminous nebula of dust and gas that is observable because it
obscures light from other sources. The audio track is a pairing of the melancholic song.
Lee Arnold was born in London in 1972 and lives in Brooklyn. In his work he explores systems of natural phenomena using a variety of media, including film, video, animation, photography, collage, drawing and sound. He has exhibited at venues including the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Eyebeam and Exit Art in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in Philadelphia, the Montclair Art Museum in New Jersey, and SIGGRAPH in Los Angeles and Hong Kong. Arnold is the recipient of fellowships from the MacDowell, the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council and the DAAD, Berlin. He is an Associate Professor at Drew University.
