Description:

The University of Miami's searchable website "As Far as the Eye/I Can See" is a collaboration of an English Professor in Caribbean Studies and their Digital Library Fellowship. The focus of the site is Caribbean artists and art critics, and includes audio and video interviews, photographs, biographies, and RSS feeds from Caribbean art critics. On the left hand menu are links to eleven "artist profiles", two galleries and art centers, as well as links to the perspectives of two art critics, "Annie Paul" and "Christopher Cozier". Links to "Art Events" and a "Bibliography" are at the bottom of the left hand menu. Visitors shouldn't miss the work and life history of the artist "Erman", whose "biography", "CV", and "galleries" of work are accessible by a link in the "artist profiles" section. His introduction describes his series of work called "Cocoon", and was informed by his time as a child laborer in textile sweatshops in Miami in the 1960s. His work honors piecework laborers throughout the world and it is also quite educational.
