Collaborative Projects


  artificial atmosphers   Artificial Atmospheres ARTIFICIAL ATMOSPHERES is a time based emersive installation of individual and collaborative works by sibling artists Robert Todd and Deb Todd Wheeler. Born in Houston, TX and raised in New York City suburbs, both artists relocated to Boston as young adults, where they have been working artists in conversation for decades. In recent years the theme of artificiality and the suspect positioning of the word “nature” became present in both artist’s works. Robert, a lyrical filmmaker who teaches at Emerson College, has been documenting the presence or absence of nature in the urban lived environment in a collection of hundreds of films. (?) Deb Todd’s practice spans multiple mediums, exploring plastic, biomimicry, and human angst. In 2012 they hatched a plan to work on the collaborative project, Artificial Atmospheres, and this exhibition presents the collaborative video works, as well as other indiviual audio visual explorations.
