Mary Babcock at East Hawai’i Cultural Center Deliquesce

Art meets climate change activism at EHCC in “Deliquesce” exhibition
In chemistry, to “deliquesce” is to absorb water to the point of liquifying and melting away, as some salts may do. In a new exhibition at the East Hawai‘i Cultural Center, visual and performance artist Mary Babcock takes this concept and applies it to sea level rise and climate change in the Pacific. Nature absorbs the impact of human interventions, but dissolution may be the end result. The exhibition will be on view from November 3 to December 23 at the East Hawaii Cultural Center in Hilo.
