Kelsy Osterman presents HUMAN NATURE: AN IMMERSIVE MOVEMENT, a night of artistic expression brought to life through a collection of visual and audible works. Human Nature is a celebration of peace found in the present moment, explored through photography, video, interactive fiber sculpture, light, sound, and vocals. Kelsy aims to guide her viewers in this multi layered experience with the overarching question, “How do you find peace?” To Kelsy, peace is the wholeness created by the right relationships with oneself, other persons, other cultures, Earth, and the larger whole of which we all contribute. In an era of device-obsession, consumerism, and political upheaval, Human Nature urges participants to commit to finding inner peace, embracing stillness, and actively sharing out this serenity to counteract the stress and anxiety permeating our culture today.
Human Nature, an invite-only, one-night immersion held on the Summer Solstice. Constructed in the sprawling Peterson Milla Hooks Building beneath a glass roof, the experience weaves a natural phenomenon with familiar objects and spaces to awaken participants to awe and peace in the mundane and routine. Installation elements are dispersed into rooms and joined by a common sound experience, inviting participants to converse, bask, and contemplate.
