Presented by The Center
Jack Holmer, Manifesto Against Gravity
The Center Courtyard
Exhibition Dates: June 15 - August 7
Artist Talk | June 15 6-7PM
Manifesto Against Gravity is an installation that interacts with the observer to create sensitive (affective) situations by subjugating gravity and making the characteristics of digital dialogue with the concrete world. Bodies created in a virtual environment make their way to the concrete world where the laws of physics modify their properties conceived in the virtual world. The exhibition will show six sculptures that feel the presence of the spectator and respond to it with subtle movements.
