Virtually Physically Speaking
Curated by Kelly Kaczynski
March 6- April 12, 2014
Opening Reception: March 6, 2014, 5-8 PM
How do we understand 3-D today? How do we perceive of dimension, depth and density in relation to a corporeal state when our activities are generated, accessed and understood through technologies that assume or define dimensions beyond the tangible. Currently, we are participating in a world – globally and locally – that adopts the language of 3-D as adjective and verb, used to describe enhanced states, or even just pragmatic states, of things, non-things and actions alike. We are experiencing the space beyond the monitor as an ever-present palpable site/arena/atmosphere that we ‘visit/navigate/got to/experience”.
This exhibition seeks to parse out the shifts in perception and reception of the 3-dimensional as it relates to both conventional practices and new technologies. Ultimately, the exhibition is proposing an amalgamation of the term “physical” as it is experienced in both virtual and actual space, with virtual and actual things, virtual and actual personas.
Participating artists include: Amanda Bowles, Theodore Darst, Ika Knezevic, Judith Leemann, Todd Mattei, Inigo Manglano-Ovalle, Chris Naka, John Neff, and Siebren Versteeg
