How do we make sense of our environment parse it, probe it, and enact change?

Machines With Magnets (Pawtucket, RI) presents COLLISION:Stealing from the Real, curated by COLLISIONcollective member Georgina Lewis. The show includes 9 artists from the US and Canada.

COLLISION:Stealing from the Real examines the transformative power of play and technology’s place within this act. Increasingly computer-mediated, simulation is how we learn about the world and test scenarios, a way of exploring identity, critiquing societal norms, constructing and reframing history or just plain having fun.  Simulation redefines play as a rules-based process that allows artists to mimic reality and push formal, technical, and conceptual boundaries.

COLLISION:Stealing from the Real premiered at the Boston Cyberarts Gallery in Jamaica Plain Boston. We are grateful to Marcel McVay and Machines with Magnets for hosting its second incarnation.  Artists include Lydia Behr, W. Benjamin Bray, Rob Gonsalves and Anna Kristina Goransson, Faith Holland, Annette Isham, Erika Lincoln, Sarah Rushford, John Slepian and Mark Stock.

The opening is Thursday, Nov 19, 2015 at 6PM.

(*if you got here from Facebook, the event is free!)
