06-10_nesto_1An exhibit of photomontages created by hydrogeologist, Jonathon Wells, opens on October 24 in Milton Academy’s Nesto Gallery. Aptly titled Sub/Surface Constructions, this show contains large-scale, digitally altered photomontages that focus on urban areas, hazardous waste sites and residential areas. Through his highly documented reconfigured imagery, Jonathon reveals the subtle and not-so-subtle shifts and movements under Earth’s surface.Sub/Surface Constructions is firmly rooted in the genre of social responsibility as it maps various areas in the United States and visibly dissects them. Jonathon’s work joins panoramic views of the land surface with reconstructions of the underlying geology, and in doing so asks fundamental questions about the relationship between humankind and the environment. An opening reception is scheduled for Tuesday, October 24, from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., in the Nesto Gallery located on the lower level of the Science Building. The exhibit will run from October 24 through November 30 and is open to the public on weekdays from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. For more information, please contact Anne Neely at 617-898-2335.
