"Like the misplaces mitten or errant earring, each one of us eventually ends up at the lost and found. When we have been abandoned, cast away, forgotten, set free, moved on, we are confronted with a bleak universe. When we lose sight of the path, however, we are suddenly free to go whichever way we choose. Being at the lost and found is a moment of utmost distress, and at the same time, a place to begin again."
Lost and Found is curated by IMAGe Unit, a collective of the Columbia College Chicago Interdisciplinary Arts and Media MFA candidates dedicated to the principles of collaborative and individual creative excellence. IMAGe Unit invited Columbia students of all disciplines to submit works based upon the theme "lost and found." The exhibition features a broad range of artworks from traditional photography to multimedia installation.
