On the Basis of Patterns

On the Basis of Patterns is a solo exhibition of intricate line drawings by Megan Sheffer ’10.  The exhibition includes two ongoing projects that visually abstract the clinical and subjective language within the Diagnostic Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM).  A Reductionistic Anachronism V2 is a series of connecting ink drawings on paper that push an obsession that is both mental and physical, into a format that is never-ending.  Criteria is a series of sculptural work that mimics Scheffer’s line drawings and the subjectivity of classifying and grouping things that appear similar.  Scheffer’s work investigates, questions, and attempts to translate systems and definitions of mental health.
