In Leviathan I: The Aesthetics of Capital, artist Pete Froslie transforms the Ellen and Richard L. Sandor Gallery inside the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art into an experimental extension of his art studio. Froslie's Leviathan series uses chemical processes to extract rare earth metals from electronic waste, seeking to answer the question, “How best can we see capital?” Leviathan I explores capital by integrating understandings of climate change, moral and political philosophy, philosophical aesthetics and demonology through experimental electro-mechanics and game engine-based digital projection.
