eume, short for eumelanin was the third installment of an interactive exhibition trilogy forthe Overtown Music and Arts Festival.
eume celebrated brown and black skin tones, allowing festival-goers to draw themselves into their city's fabric.
The piece was constructed from two 6x6' hexagons and three 5' pentagons. An aerial view of the exhibition mimicked the composition of eumelanin, the specific melanin that creates brown and black skin tones.

LeXander Bryant is a Nashville artist, designer, and photographer. LeXander Bryant: Forget Me Nots
addresses themes of perseverance amid adversity, family structures and bonds, economic inequality, community activism, and more.
One of LeXander's primary mediums is wheat pasting. I wanted to create a gallery guide that would double as a poster paying homage to Le's wheatpastings. We were able to accomplish this by creating a die that made a slit on two of the interior page panels. This allowed the gallery guide to function without stitching and permitted text and imagery to flow into the gutter creating a contemporary newsprint feel.
