Fissures and Fractures

Fissures and Fractures Riverbox was created by artist Andrea Myers in 2011. Myers is an instructor in Foundations/Fine Arts at the Columbus College of Art and Design. The artist explores space between two- and three-dimensionality, creating layered sculptures from flat materials. Her forms reference the organic behavior of natural settings.

Clue #1

Stroll past the playground and tennis courts, then turn left onto the path toward the river. 

Clue #2

Continue past the round fire pit

Clue #3

Look near the rock formations on your left.

A well known park in Dublin, Ohio that allows public access to the river, trails and picnic areas. This park is home to the quarry where much of the stone for Dublin’s buildings were sourced.

Park open dawn to dusk.

Limited parking.

Artist Andrea Myers derives inspiration from exploring space between two- and three-dimensionality, and focuses on creating layered sculptures from flat materials. Her forms reference the organic behavior of nature, such as plate tectonics.

Plate tectonics reference large plates within the earth that are layered and are in continuous lateral movement. The earth has 1o different plates (as well as minor plates) that move in relation to one another in certain plate boundaries: convergent (two plates push against one another), divergent (two plates move away from each other), and transform (two plates slide past one another). At times, plates will lock together. When forced to break apart, they can cause natural disasters, such as earthquakes.

Many natural wonders of the world have been created by geological activity and earth’s natural disasters.
