Picturing Consequences, a collaboration between Mary E. Lewey and Avi Paul Weinstein, is a mixed media video installation that imagines the oddities we create in our own environment. Our surroundings are constantly changing. Sometimes this change is obvious and happens in deliberate, bold gestures. Other times it occurs in subtle ways that are barely noticeable. Our actions are part of this ongoing evolution. The extremes of human interaction can be a positive force or a devastating setback. Between the two, a lively and absurd juxtaposition with elements of both can occur.

Picturing Consequences debuts at the Somerville Museum on Saturday, December 1, during David Buckley Borden’s Triple Decker Ecology exhibition. A screening of his documentary, Hemlock Hospice, begins at 6:30 p.m., followed by Picturing Consequences on loop.
