Simulated Human: Artist Reception
Sep 28 @ 8:00 pm – 10:00 pm

artist reception: Thursday, Sep 28 | 8pm
art discipline:  photography | digital art | video projection
exhibit runs | Oct 30 – Nov 17

We are part of a culture that documents everyday actions, experiences, portraits and small details (often automatically, and on the go). Our photos receive their minute of fame in news feeds — and are laid to rest. Technology is drastically changing the way we live our lives, share our experiences, make our art and experience our surroundings. It’s also challenging our idea of what it means to be human.

With the new iPhone and Google’s Pixel cameras, the final shift of photography to smartphones. In the world of photography, however, the virtual trend of GoPro’s and Drone Photography is not changing an aesthetic so much as expanding it. Rather than looking at an image, we, as the viewer are now in the image. We are not seeing but experiencing. Technology continues to infinitely increase the size of our world.

artist reception: Thursday, Jan 18 | 7pm

The Box Project 50 Hands…. 25 Boxes by 6 Hands Collaborative

6 Hands Collaborative will invite 25 South Florida Artists to each create an original work of art using a plain wooden box. Each participating artist will be given a set of identical random objects to incorporate into their vision for their box. Artists will be required to select a minimum of 5 of these objects in the execution of the artwork. The result is called “The Box Project” in which all 25 boxes are exhibited together as part of 6 Hands annual exhibit, “The Art of Collaborative Art.”
