The art of becoming is not only limited to the idea but the actual artwork morphing right in front of you. Last January 22nd, AF came to the opening of Margeaux Walter for her transformative panels that are Becoming indeed. The cool effect of the morphing imagery had weighty messages as in the couple taking a selfie can be the dominance of technology with social media that can drown or overwhelm our lives, a couple having a placid picnic gets flooded with a deluge of corn, another couple in bed gets consumed by feathers, etc. Walter presented the sobering thoughts cleverly in a cool way for this turn out with her photographic wizardry. Art is always about becoming more than what you thought it’d be. This show proves that point.
