Six artists will use sound, light and viewer interactive experience to express their own perception of the ‘here and now’. The curatorial group organized by Curator, Lianne Mueller, strives to create exhibitions that use a combination of science, psychology, philosophy and the element of surprise to encourage viewers/participants to reflect and observe their daily lives with increased awareness.
The exhibition includes artist Lana Caplan who will engage the audience with an interactive piece, Adam Belt whose work illuminates images which slowly appear from a barren frame of blackness, Morgan Mandalay challenges us to become an active ‘looker’, Francisco Eme manipulates simple elements using natural reflection, and defraction of sound to create an ethereal soundscape and Gabie Strong and Matthew Hebert bring a tactile curtain of light and sound.
The opening reception on Saturday August 15th is a fundraiser($8.00 donation) for the Ship in the Woods plans for a new residency program, future education programs and a recording studio. There will be special performances throughout the night by music groups PRGRM and HEXA whose music is a combination of moody, rhythmic and hypnotic sound that is electronic and experimental. A food truck preparing Cajun cuisine will be located outside of Space 4 Art during the reception.
The show runs August 18 – 21 from 11 am – 4 pm.
