Waste Not, Want Not: Sacramento Artist Angela Gonzalez makes the connection between Art, Technology and Sustainability

SMUD Art Gallery, 6301 S Street, Sacramento on Friday, November 16, 2018

CURRENT EXHIBITION INFORMATION

Angela Gonzalez is a Sacramento based artist who creates works from recycled materials and converts them into pieces that help viewers make the connection between art, technology and sustainability.

Today, our planet faces an unprecedented environmental crisis: global warming, intensive farming, and habitat destruction, among others. A sustainable future requires a balance between people, planet and profit. Keeping this balance represents a challenge in a world of hyper population and aggressive business.

By removing computer components from the waste stream and using them as part of my work, I am contributing to lessening their environmental impact. Ultimately, I want to further the understanding of how technology is both a contributor to some of these problems and an enabler of solutions. My objective is to create awareness and engage audiences in a conversation about our ecological and social responsibilities, leading to a greener tomorrow.
- Angela Gonzalez

Angela has a Design Degree from the Politecnico Nacional, Colombia, and has completed art coursework at the Angel Academy of Art, Florence, Italy, Florida Atlantic University, Boca Raton, FL, and the Cantor Arts Center, Stanford University, Palo Alto, CA.
