Fossil Fools 2010
Young Harris College’s Campus Gate Art Gallery hosted “Fossil Fools,” a performance and digital media arts installation. The exhibit opened Thursday, Jan. 21, with an opening-night live performance in Young Harris College’s Dobbs Theatre. The exhibit was on display through Friday, Feb. 26.

“Fossil Fools” is a combined set of installations and performances about the past and future of fossil fuels and energy resources. The work is a mixture of video, sound and performance.

“Fossil Fools” consists of a group of collaborative artists, featuring Kristen Baumlier, a multimedia and performance artist who teaches at the Cleveland Institute of Art; Tom Hansell, a documentary filmmaker who works at Appalshop, a media arts center in Whitesburg, Ky.; and Brian Harnetty, a sound artist and composer from Columbus, Ohio.

The exhibit has been featured recently at Berea College in Kentucky, University of Northern Iowa, the Select Media Festival in Chicago and the Athens Film Festival in Athens, Ohio.
