Synthetic Cells: Site and Para (Site)

 

Opening to the public in June of 2018
Opening celebration October 28th 2018
@ Grounds For Sculpture
Hamilton New Jersey

 

Synthetic Cells is an n-dimensional sculptural project that uses augmented reality and inflatable vinyl sculptures to weave a rich melange around the collision of utopias and an updated 21rst century Chattaqua. Curated by Tom Moran, Rees also conceived of the exhibition as a para-site for artists working with augmented reality to create a show beside the site of the inflatable vinyl cubes. Grounds for Sculpture has invited guest curators Edward Winkelman and Murat Otrbozekov to curate the Para (Site) with 6 artists: Will Pappenheimer, Claudia Hart, Chris Manzione, Tamiko Thiel, Jacob Kudsk Steensen, John Craig Freeman.
