Mikey Mosher: Biofeedback: Closing Reception

@ Compound Yellow

244 Lake St, Oak Park, IL 60302

Opening Saturday, June 3rd, from 3PM - 6PM

On view through Saturday, June 3rd

Join us for the closing reception of Mikey Mosher’s ‘Biofeedback’. This exhibition is a body of work which reflects on and attempts to rectify the loss of tactility in contemporary American culture. This loss is particularly obvious in the context of technology, and our physical interactions with it. Touch screens lessen the physical sensation of every swipe, type, and tap, so much so that these sensations need to be simulated back into the experience through added haptic feedback. This loss of touch has stretched into our interpersonal relationships even more during the pandemic era. Reflecting on these patterns brought about this body of work that attempts to both embody this loss of tactility, but also be an act of resistance to that loss. Pieces in this exhibition involve “hands-off” production processes such as lasercutting, but also require significant “hands-on” methods like sanding, collaging, painting, and arranging. Mikey asks that guests bring one small object to exchange with objects in the main installation piece.
