exhibitions Harley McDaniel - String Theory
email list
The Charles Harris Library Gallery is pleased to present String Theory, an installation by Harley McDaniel. McDaniel brings an aesthetic awareness to common, overlooked elements of daily life. His String Theory transforms bailing twine from mundane, utilitarian material into an evocative, tactile art experience. The shimmering, translucent veil constructed of seven miles of hanging twine creates a  simple, meditative, playful installation. Informed by a Zen Buddhist concern for mindfulness, McDaniel hopes to draw attention to the richness of daily life and the unexpected beauty of the material world.

Harley McDaniel completed his BFA from Bowling Green State University and his MFA from Miami University in Oxford, OH.  He is currently Assistant Professor of Art at Kankakee Community College in Kankakee, IL.
