In this group exhibition we feature works by Seattle artists exploring new territory. For some, all territory is new as they are young and just starting out. For others, the territory encompasses inquiries into areas where technology and art meld to create novel forms and experiences.

One cannot go exploring without a safe home base, and most of these artists keep at least one foot on familiar ground. The men offer us toys of sorts, from shiny, precision made devices to constructions of fantasy militaria. The women invite us into metaphorical homes where there is, of course, comfort, danger, and extensive examinations of the intricacies of intimate relationships.

There are two things they all have in common, one in meaning, the other in mode of delivery. These artists are seeking to define the forces that undermine our salvation, and they’re seeking them through play. In several instances, the audience is invited to join in, and tasked with hands on exploration.

Come push buttons, rearrange a dysfunctional landscape, or take part as a studio audience member on a film set. Examine in detail proposed end runs around our dystopian future, and discover how to leave signs of our collective consciousness, and grief, after we are long gone.

Participating artists include: Ben Sarao, Keeara Rhoades, Spar Wilson, Priscilla Dobler, Alexander Keyes, Robert Tucker, J. Shagam.

This project was supported, in part, by an award from 4Culture.
