Anything Can Be A Dragon, Anything Can Be A Snake is a two-person exhibition and the first time Kristin Abhalter Smith and Kristin McWharter have worked together. Using experimental software and hardware systems, the show explores the emergent phenomena of ignition, provocation, synchronization, and the powerful forces that cause people to move together.
The multimedia installation is assembled of new works from the two artists’ practices. McWharter explores crowd simulation software and the real time digital image while Abhalter Smith explores hypertragic inflatable tubes and the dynamics of kinetic movement. Anything Can Be A Dragon, Anything Can Be A Snake deals with the perception of consciousness, the potential for connection, and the inevitability of distortion. What emerges is a sensorial and celebratory swell of energy that sweeps us in a common direction.
Artist Talk and Reception: 5:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 3
