Palmer Commons

Palmer Commons is pleased to again demonstrate our role as an intersection of the Sciences and the Arts with the recent installation of Dinoflagellate Dreams by Paula Schubatis. Ms. Schubatis is a Junior in the School of Art and Design studying fiber arts and painting and is interested in analyzing the convergence of the analytical and spiritual realms through her work.

For this installation, Ms. Schubatis capitalized on the visual similarities between Dinoflagellates, a type of unicellular plankton, and the Native American dream catcher. The work consists of multiple circular screens made of fabric and different appliqués, allowing light to filter through. Dinoflagellate Dreams is displayed in Glass House Café. We invite you to come over to Palmer Commons, have a cup of coffee and enjoy the new installation!
