Exhibit relating to computer code, gender opens with reception Nov. 8

“01,” an exhibit of art by Alex Orellana-Mizell, will open with a reception and artist’s talk at 7 p.m. Friday, Nov. 8, at Ripon College. The exhibit will run through Dec. 13 in Caestecker Gallery, C.J. Rodman Center for the Arts. Both the reception and the exhibit are free and open to the public.

The exhibit is meant to evoke computer binary code and also relates to gender.

Orellana-Mizell is from Suwanee, Georgia, and is based in Portland, Oregon. His recent artwork stems from perception laboratory methods and findings.

“Visual psychophysics research has established that humans comprehend newly observed images within 100 milliseconds,” Orellana-Mizell says. “This series seeks to test the quantity of information required to immediately discriminate between male and female faces.”

Orellana-Mizell holds a bachelor’s degree in photography from the University of Georgia; and a master’s degree from the University of Wisconsin-Madison where he received the Chazen Museum Prize to an Outstanding MFA student.

In addition to exhibiting his work across the country, he has lectured and taught courses and workshops at UW-Oshkosh and UW-Madison in areas including understanding the arts, animation, digital art and digital literacy, software, strategic planning for nonprofit organizations, poster design and design principles.
