"Particulate" at Vox Populi Gallery in Philadelphia

"Particulate" is a show of ten diverse and internationally known artists who have packaged their visual inspections for playback on micro players. These mp4 players, often illegally labeled as ipods range from 1" to 2.5" diagonal, offer very affordable and intimate venues for these introspective works.

These thirteen particulate samples were gathered from across the US and Canada to settle briefly in Philadelphia. Packets blown about in the passing traffic of the tubes abandoned by DARPA. The dust of dangerous bodies and cultures are collected, appropriated, examined, codecs have been applied, solid state storage units feed Chinese liquid crystal micro displays, photons are filtered and scattered. To ensure public safety, all specimens are simulated in small form, isolated, and displayed behind glass.

Artist included in the show are Laleh Mehran, dNASAb, GARhodes & Chris Ernst of The Buffalo Super Friends, Adriane Little, Tom Bendtsen, Adam Weekley, Alexander Reyna, Colin Ives, Christopher Borkowski, and James Humphrey .
