Civilization as a Sculpture
Artist Dustin Yellin spins tales about how the human world and the worlds of critters, plants, and rocks have always been a collection of enmeshed networks, some hidden. Touching on his multidisciplinary approach, which crosses several traditionally siloed fields, he draws attention to the ways in which everyone and everything is interconnected despite various physical, economic, cultural, or political constraints. Yellin, who was raised in Aspen, returns to the city of his childhood to reflect on his personal artistic and social journey, while also considering how that history can stoke new ways of seeing and being in the world.
