On Saturday afternoon, I escaped from all the runners in my neighborhood and made it to the gallery to see the exhibition's closing with what seemed like time to spare. But all I saw was the view of the Chestnut Square building's hallways through the locked front doors.
I blame Friday night on a Benadryl-induced mini-coma that threw my whole night off. I blame Saturday, of course, on the marathon.
Hopefully I'll have better luck tomorrow night when MTSU's Gizmology Club stops by Seed Space for a one-night-only exhibit that aims to leave an impression on the audience. The Gizmology crew employs circuit bending, motion controls and detectors, recording devices, motor controls and other dubious technological means to both create and archive interactions between their work and their viewers. The show aims to make a comment about collectors and collecting, pointing at how both the viewer and the work change and define one another in their roles of observer and observed. However, in order to have your mind sufficiently blown by the process, you've got to actually show up. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
