Matt Martin: the kessler syndrome

@ Roman Susan

1224 West Loyola Avenue, Chicago, Il 60626

Opening Saturday, October 10th, from 5PM - 8PM

On view through Sunday, November 1st

The Kessler Syndrome is a scenario in which the high density of space debris orbiting Earth creates the possibility that a single collision between objects could cause an infinite cascade of collisions, rendering space exploration and the use of satellites unfeasible. The work in this series is comprised of castings of older work, grafts and agglutinations of wood, paint, and acrylic mediums; processes centered around a comparison to the hyperobjectivity of orbital debris.

Reception: Saturday, October 10 // 5-8 PM
Gallery Hours: Tue, Wed, Thu 4-7 PM + Sat 12-3 PM
Artist Discussion with Luke Fidler: Sunday, November 1 // 3-4 PM
