The works in this exhibition circle around ideas about possible futures: scenarios in which characters are making objects out of the materials at hand for plain old living or for mystical, powerful purposes.
The artists are interested in the way things could be, and the blend of loathing and joy that can result from that investigation. Potential!
The exhibition features found cheap stuff, found beautiful stuff, and reverently handcrafted functional stuff. Ultimately, the exhibition is raising questions of how we want to live, the goofiness in the objects we use, and the ways in which our energy is transformed when we apply it.
