Particulate - a show of microcosms

“Particulate” is a show of eight diverse and internationally known artists who have packaged their visual inspections for playback on micro players. These mp4 players, often illegally labeled as ipods range from 1” to 2.5” diagonal, offer very affordable and intimate venues for these introspective works.

"These nine particulate samples were gathered from across the US and Canada to settle briefly in Eugene. Packets blown about in the passing traffic of the tubes abandoned by DARPA. The dust of dangerous bodies and cultures are collected, appropriated, examined, and probed by a brave group of eight visual excavators. To make the particulate momentarily visible, transformations and codecs have been applied, solid state storage units feed Chinese liquid crystal micro displays, photons are filtered and scattered. To ensure public safety, all specimens are simulated in small form, isolated, and displayed behind glass."

“Particulate” is presented by Lump West Gallery in Eugene OR, and was curated by Chris Coleman.
The show opens June 22nd from 7-10pm.
