January 26 – February 11
Reception: Thursday, January 26 – 5pm
In this exhibition, Argentine artist and game designer Fernando Ramallo explores the increasingly blurry boundaries between physical and virtual environments. Ramallo uses multiple projectors, a landscape of soft-inflatable furnishings, game development software (Unity3D), and collaborator David Kanaga’s dynamic musical soundscape to create a hypnotic, viewer-controlled alternative reality. multisensorial shelter no. 1 is a hybrid experience, employing elements of both traditional cinema—projection, screens, shared viewing space—and virtual reality—immersion, non-linear narrative, interactivity and dynamically generated synthetic landscapes. Ramallo has worked in Argentina, Mexico, Berlin, Portland, OR. and is currently based in Brooklyn. He has exhibited at major museums including SF MOMA, San Fransisco and the EMP Museum, Seattle as well as festivals including Indiecade and XOXO.
