From "A Given Distance"
Ditch Projects presents two new installations to kick off Ditch Freeze 2011, their "annual wintry mix of installation and performance." A Given Distance
will be in the main gallery space: "With explosive growth in connectivity comes a widening zone of mediation, in which a thing can be expected to shift radically between origin and apprehension. For A Given Distance
, artists from Portland, Seattle, and Philadelphia explore this expanded field via technology and optical play, with work that populates modes of dissemination, stretches across lines of sight, or drifts unmoored between origins and point of impact." Featured artists include: Chase Biado, Maggie Casey, Travis Fitzgerald, Derek Frech, Joseph Lacina, Joshua Pavlacky, Zach Rose, Daniel Wallace, and Benjamin Young.
In the Project Room, Aileen Tolentino presents Balance/Timbang
, "the cyclical condition of excitation and rest, disorder and stability, and reorganization and destruction. Through the use of paintings and assemblage, Tolentino solidifies a sense of harmonic chaos into object and atmosphere, establishing a visual resolution between the contradictory forces of unbalance and equilibrium."
