I’ve been working with Desiree Holman over the last year, building electronic kinetic artwork for her upcoming event.
Join me at this free event, May 10th 6-8pm (5-6pm preview for members) at the di Rosa in Napa!
(yes, the image below is a bit intense. It’s supposed to be, it’s art!)
In this new body of work, artist Desirée Holman explores the overlap of technology, sci-fi pop culture, and New Age mysticism. Through an immersive, multimedia installation, Holman unpacks the iconography associated with these realms–including aliens, auras, and time travelers–to examine the space where fantasy can reveal truth. The exhibition emerges from Holman’s long-standing interest in the communal uses of technology for creative, spiritual, and social fulfillment. Oscillating between terrestrial and extraterrestrial, and new and old ages, Sophont in Action speaks largely to our culturally developed conceptions of “otherness” and the shaping of identity within an evolving world.
FREE. (Members’ Preview: 5-6 PM.)
