About the Show:
Frames of Reference in physics refer to a coordinate system which represents properties of objects (position and orientation) at different moments of time. A frame of reference can also define a space for all moments of time
In the exhibit, Frame of Reference, each artist represents people and places in moments of time. Original illustrations were created to weave together the photographs and connect them representing three dimensional space for two dimensional images.
