NADA exhibit explores many levels of nothing

Eyeing a ball of lint, hair and dust poetically pinned on the wall, I fully realized that the NADA exhibit, on display at the Rice Media Center until March 5th, is not figurative in its claims of "nothing" art.Other pieces of work on display include a series of metallic-foiled, rectangular canvases depicting nothing through the reduction of the human form into mere quadrilaterals; exposed film strips gradually progressing from white to black, signifying nothing becoming nothing; and a sitting, hollow doll made of splintered wood, representing nothing by defeat. Overall, the exhibit features more than fifty pieces of work spanning all sorts of mediums, genres and styles.
