One of my first duties as an intern was to upload, edit and organize the Biorenewables Research Laboratory’s artwork and description on their website. While working on this project, I was pleased to find a picture of a dear friend and brilliant painter, Chris Gordon. He was the second place winner at the First Annual BRL Art Competition in 2o10. The website will be categorized by the type of artist (professional, faculty or student) and under the student column, it will be divided up by year and feature the competition’s winners.I throughly enjoyed working with these images and reading many of the artist’s descriptions and interpretation of their own artwork, and how it relates to the idea of the Biorenewable Research Laboratory. In Chris’ writing, he talked about how using materials that are no longer useful, essentially trash, and using them to make fine arts. That was the definition of renewable to him – when new life uses what it can from the previous existence and channels its qualities to suit its fresh intentions.
