“Hemmed in by Nature” on display in Bird Library

Bird Library is currently displaying the sculpture “Hemmed in by Nature” by artist Mark Povinelli on the second floor atrium.

This work explores the relationship between the five classical senses—sight, hearing, taste, smell, and touch—depicted within the sculpture, thus invoking broader modalities of perception. By viewing the sculpture at unique orientations a variety of images are visualized through the copper wire panels (the human face, birds, butterflies, Ganesha, etc.). Povinelli is interested in the intersection between the sciences and arts.

This piece was created while Povinelli was an artist in residence at Syracuse University Nancy Cantor Warehouse in 2006/2007. The residency focused on building the sculpture in-situ to connect the broader Syracuse arts community with the Syracuse University student body. Mark Povinelli is currently the Kenneth A. and Mary Ann Shaw Professor of Practice in Entrepreneurial Leadership in the College of Engineering and Computer Science and the Whitman School of Management.
