Twice Removed – Closing Reception
Dec 11, 2013 @ 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm| Free
Join Us for a night of Augmented Art, Revelry and Free Wine! (we are on Brokelyn)
The Active Space and Second Screen Reality are pleased to present “Twice Removed” a presentation of works by Lauren Carly Shaw. Thanks to project manager Lindsay Saunders, animators Kevin Sternschein, Maika Johnson, and Daniel Faria for making the event possible.
It’s going to be a great night of art, animation and connection! Take out those phones and lets see some augmented reality. Of if you’re feeling especially crazy, bring your tablet and carouse around the gallery.
This interactive exhibit highlights the compelling interplay of traditional new art yoked with modern technology. Wherein the investigation of form through drawing and sculpture is amplified by the addition of animated reality. Twice Removed highlights a number of Shaw’s Sculptures and Drawings that come to life when a tablet device or smart phone is held up to view the work; when this happens, the on-screen animation breathes a second ‘life’ into the otherwise inanimate sculptures and images. As the Sculptures and drawings are already in the realm of simulacra, the animations offer further deconstructions of the work, which separate the viewer even more from the actual reality of the original objects. By turning sculptures and two-dimensional forms into three-dimensional simulations of those forms, Shaw challenges viewers to push their thinking about the relationship of objects and their potential as they interact within time and space across multiples realities.
