Laguna Art Museum
ex·pose: Peter Bo Rappmund is the visual artist's first solo museum exhibition and the Laguna Art Museum's contemporary art program kick-off. "Bo Rappmund's working process is a lengthy one, recording natural and rhythmic changes in the landscape, often covering much geographical ground. He creates sporadic rhythms and time-lapse sequences, producing a visually uncanny sensation from even the most banal landscapes." Watch Psychohydrography, an examination of Southern California's water, above.
