Join us for the opening reception of Simulacrum! Meet the artists, discover a new favorite piece, and—as always—enjoy a few surprises along the way.
Simulacrum, curated by Jeremy J. Starn, explores a reality exclusively built upon representations of programmed life that is no longer distinguishable from the innate. The included artists use maps, sounds, renderings, projections, algorithms, and images to grapple with how digital representation precedes any relationship with physical reality.
This is a new existence in which time and space have been redefined by evolving technologies. Being present now seems insufficient for an understanding of the world when we can alter, circumvent, or recreate it to fit our needs.
