Addition(s): 3+3=6 features artworks by the six new faculty in the Department of Art at The Ohio State University. 

Dani Leventhal is an Assistant Professor in the Painting & Drawing program. She will be displaying her video Platonic. Platonic is a study in the awkward gaps between appearance and reality, seeing and understanding, desire and its object.

Jessica Mallios is an Assistant Professor in the Photography program. For this show, she will be exhibiting an iteration of photographic works that stage holograms with cibachromes, as well as photographic archives from the Harry Ransom Center in Austin, Texas.

Aspen Mays works in the Photography program as an Assistant Professor. She describes her work: "My practice privileges a methodology of making sense over the specifics of knowing, thereby attempting to mimic the capacity of Science to call into question above its capacity to provide answers. In this way, I hope to challenge the expectation of photography as a documentary and categorical medium and explore the visualization of knowledge in both studio art and observational practices." 

Shane Mecklenberger is an Assistant Professor in the Art & Technology program. He works with several different mediums, including sculpture, media art, and performance. He will be displaying diamonds he made, which reflect his interest in systems of value and conflict. 

George Rush is an Assistant Professor in the Painting & Drawing program. He will be dislaying a large frieze-like painting for the exhibition.

Kate Shannon is an Assistant Professor in the Art & Technology program at OSU's Mansfield campus. Her project for the exhibition is a continuation of a series of images through which she captures people in the midst of supposedly fun and entertaining moments at locations such as amusement parks. She removes the background of these photographs in order to draw attention to the human subjects.
