LiveBox October Announcements

Sat Oct 14, 2006 00:00 - Mon Oct 02, 2006

LiveBox has a busy October. For Chicago Artists Month, LiveBox is presenting Unfolding Spaces by Julieta Aguilera, plus LiveBox is curating video for the Open House Project. The Open House Project is an exhibition conceived and curated by Jodie Jacobi. Both projects are described below.

Unfolding Spaces
Julieta Aguilera
October 18- November 25, opening night October 20th, 6-9PM
Location: lower level of Kasia Kay Art Projects Gallery,
1044 W. Fulton Market, Chicago, 312 492 8828

Unfolding Spaces is a virtual reality environment that explores higher dimensional navigation on a grid structure linked to gesture. The experience cycles through color, like the times of the day, atmospheric conditions, seasons or eras, seeking to internalize the sublime in the evolving forms and sounds perceived. This exhibition would not be possible without Kais Kay Art Projects Gallery who donated space for the show.
