Description

Commissioned by the Spencer to create an original work of video art in conjunction with the exhibition Lee Friedlander At Work, artists Earl Iversen and Luke Jordan, who also are KU faculty members, made Feeding Lawrence/Work + Workplace. Supported by the Sam and Terry Evans Fund and the KU School of Fine Arts, Department of Design, Feeding Lawrence employs the medium of digital video to explore two local businesses that actively “feed” the local community in ways that involve food and communication. By focusing on food and communication, Iversen and Jordan intend for the project to address the work involved to provide for essential and elemental human needs of contemporary community.
