ALPHA BETA BEGINNING & END
March 22- April 12, 2014
Opens: Saturday, March 22nd, 5-8pm
ALPHA BETA BEGINNING & END is conceptualized as an environment for meditation (but we choose not to). Glowing, melting, pulsing, drinking. A place for ritual gathering, a hypnotic rhythm to concentrate inner focus. Light is extended to the peripheries of human perception, revealing the invisible. Liquidity and flexibility are key. Polymer skins are obsessively manipulated and distorted, softened and razor cut. Emotions will run high, but stay focused; nobody is saying that about you. Like contradiction itself, gin and tonic bring calm refleXions to a mythic era. The syntax is there. All you have to do is imagine that ur alone, a tattooed warrior oozing allegiance, desperately competing to win. Forget compl3x pr3-digital tim3s, de-acccccelerate, cleanse. Feel real, fill realm film.
“(forged by) The breath of the greatest dragon...the swords of the vanquished, a thousand of them, melted together like so many candles..."
