April 4, 2023 virtual presentation accompanying an installation by Hope Leeson (botanist and part-time faculty for Liberal Arts Science and Landscape Design and Architecture), funded by a Color Lab Faculty Fellowship. The body of work represents a year-long investigation into natural dye colors given by plants indigenous to South Kingstown, Rhode Island. The color palette is an expression of the land’s changing seasons, the terroir, and presents the visual dialect of the land to viewers.

Daniel Lefcourt, Experimental and Foundation Studies Department, and RISD Color Lab
April 26, 2022 virtual presentation accompanying EFS Associate Professor Daniel Lefcourt's exhibition Query: Evidence of Color Research on view in the picture window at 30 N Main St. April 4 - 29, 2022. Query is a set of large-format digital prints which accumulate long-term color research into digitally rendered scientific displays. The displays, which create a “laboratory” of real objects and digitally fabricated images, undermine the concept of scientific authority using humor and deception. For Lefcourt, presenting evidence of research isn’t only a requirement for recipients of academic funding; it is an opportunity to play with the very idea of ‘evidence.’ Fellow's zoom presentation was moderated by Fleet Library Visual and Material Resources Librarian Mark Pompelia.
