Art department to present senior show

At a young age, Lee Trice was fascinated by the powers of video.

TV, movies, video games and computers take up a great portion of my life, said Trice, a senior art major at Austin Peay State University. They entertain, teach, inform and inspire me to create.
Other times, I just want to turn them all off.

The dual effect of video is the theme that underlies Trices art exhibit, titled Light in a Box. The presentation, featuring video clips displayed on television monitors, opens with a reception at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 6 in the Trahern Gallery.

The dual effect of video is the theme that underlies Trice's art exhibit, titled “Light in a Box.” The presentation, featuring video clips displayed on television monitors, opens with a reception at 7 p.m., Monday, Nov. 6 in the Trahern Gallery.

The exhibit, free and open to the public, also will be available for viewing from 11 a.m.-1 p.m., Wednesday and Thursday, Nov. 7 and 8.

Trice said his exhibit will use video “to present (video's) own faults and negative effects.”
“This includes video's tendency to distort reality, filter information and distract people from being productive,” he said.

Trice's work can be found on his Web site at www.leetrice.com.
