dpetermanuniversallabDan Peterman’s work explores the intersection of art and ecology, eschewing didacticism in favor of poetics. He embraces a wide variety of formal and situational strategies, and employs a range of materials including recycled plastic and metals, as well as organic and post consumer waste. Peterman’s art simultaneously reveals the human capacity for ingenious problem solving, indifference toward others and the environment, and tragic hubris and greed.  His projects have included a sod covered VW bus doubling as a traveling homeless shelter, collections of discarded objects retrieved from abandoned buildings and presented in vitrines that parody archeological practices, and paving stones and shelving units fashioned from reconstituted industrial products.
