Colin Burke will be giving an artist's talk on Wednesday, December 7, 2011 at 5:30 pm at the Whitney Library of the New Haven Museum. Burke will discuss Deliquescence, his site-specific, interactive, multi-media installation which was commissioned by Artspace New Haven, and researched during a residency there. It includes multitudinous feet of microfilm from the New York Times collection previously destined for the landfill. Its enveloped columns reference a pair of New Haven elm trees planted 300 years ago.

The New Haven Museum is located at 114 Whitney Avenue, New Haven, CT.

The installation is part of a multi-venue exhibit called Library Science that features work by 17 international and seven New Haven-area artists, and was curated by Rachel Gugelberger, Senior Curator at Exit Art, New York. The exhibition runs from November 12, 2011 until January 28, 2012. The main gallery is Artspace New Haven, 50 Orange St., New Haven. Gallery views may be seen here.

Colin Burke is a multi-faceted visual artist who works in analog methods, including cyanotype photograms. He has also championed the camera obscura.
