PULLMAN, Wash. – While rock hunting across Antarctica last winter, WSU geochemist Jeff Vervoort was captivated by how the landscape revealed dramatic stories of merging glaciers, tortured ice, wind-sculpted snow and glacial debris.
But where he saw a language of science, Kathleen Ryan, an assistant professor of interior design, saw a language of aesthetic elements and principles, of curved lines, shapes, rhythm and movement.
The result was their interdisciplinary, husband-wife exhibit in spring’s Academic Showcase: “Visual Language of Ice and Rock on the Frozen Continent.”
