Exhibition at UC San Diego Envisages Future of Nanoparticles and Distributed Social Cinema

Installations by Adriene Jenik and *particle group*
Atkinson Hall
University of California, San Diego
Map & Directions:
August 6 to October 3, 2008
Closing Reception: October 2 at 6PM

New-media art installations that caution visitors about a future when books are relics of the past, and nanoparticles represent a pervasive threat to human health, will be on display starting August 4 at the gallery@calit2 on the campus of the University of California, San Diego.

The joint exhibition will present "SPECFLIC 2.6" by UC San Diego Visual Arts professor Adriene Jenik, and "Particles of Interest" by *particle group*, an art collective composed of independent and UCSD-based artists and writers.

The art installations ask the viewer to consider a not-so-distant future in which individuals will be intimately connected to networks not only through our computers, but via nanoparticles in or on our own bodies.

The gallery is part of the UCSD division of the California Institute for Telecommunications and Information Technology (Calit2).
