Artist and Credits: Fissures and Fractures Riverbox was created by artist Andrea Myers. Myers recently moved to Columbus from Chicago. She 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.
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.
