Slippage exists in the grey areas of language and social interaction. It is the realm of the in-between--the place of disjunction, expectations, covert meanderings, and the processes and residue of questioning minds. Sites selected for "Slippage" explore and expose relationships between intention, perception, control, experience, behavior, memory, knowing and the unexpected.

Artists include Mez Breeze; Krista Connerly; Juliet Davis; Lisa Hutton; Paula Levine; Jess Loseby, et al.; UBERMORGEN.COM; and Jody Zellen.
