Universe of the Mind: Inquiry & Inspiration by Nature

By Hanna Jubran
September 1 – November 19
West Wing Gallery

Opening Reception
Friday, September 8, 2017, 5:30 to 7:00 pm

Featuring the work of ECU Sculpture Professor, Hanna Jubran, Universe of the Mind: Inquiry & Inspiration by Nature will present a recent series of sculptures that are based on Jubran’s interest in astronomy and his fascination with celestial objects. Comprised of over thirty wall relief sculptures in bronze and aluminum, as well as large-scale, free standing steel sculptures, Universe of the Mind presents simulations, imaginary universes that suggest important questions about the cosmos. Jubran structures each universe around the four elements – earth, wind, fire, and water – in order to explore our human reliance on each; to study how these elements produce basic shapes in nature; to admire the endless complexities of form that exist; and to imagine the origins of life.
