Indianapolis Museum of Contemporary Art (iMOCA)
Kathryn Refi is an Athens, Georgia-based artist who uses a broad range of artistic tools to translate ritualistic activities from her daily life into objective terms. She is also a habitual All Things Considered
listener who began questioning her own assumptions about this NPR news show with global coverage. So she mapped out the geography of news story placement month-by-month in 2007. The result, "All Things Considered," is a series of quasi world maps rendered with red adhesive stickers on white paper. (It demonstrates that NPR coverage during that period was slanted heavily towards North America and the Middle East.) But the centerpiece of this show is the series of seven paintings "Color Recordings" (oil on panel). These paintings might at first strike you as typical abstraction, but the vertical lines of different hues in these paintings represent the spectrum of colors she recorded with a surveillance camera on her person; these were the colors she most frequently saw as she went about each day on her routines during a one-week period.
