This event has ended.

Ceres Gallery presents Shirley Steele’s Hello World: Cloud Storage 2.0. In this installation, a transparent cloud of acetate, print, and paint, Steele explores the idea that humans continuously reinvent written language. Each piece in the multi-piece installation displays the tech meme “Hello World” in a different language and writing system. Familiar tech symbols (emojis, location balloons, etc.) are randomly interwoven with the text. These old and new symbolic systems invite the viewer to imagine the creation of visual language as an ongoing, living human endeavor.

Shirley Steele’s creative process combines new media techniques (computer coding) with traditional methods (painting and drawing). Her work may be found in universities and research centers, in private collections in the US and Europe, and sometimes in lights projected on building facades.
