WAAS Gallery presents "Cycles" opening reception
Founded by artist Brandy Michele Adams, WAAS Gallery is hosting "Cycles," a presentation of six artists with three pieces of work selected by Adams: En-Compass, Infusoria, and Showgirl Video.
En-Compass is an immersive installation of sound and light inspired by transformation, with a special-event performance inside hosted and performed by Adams and avant-garde musician Lily Taylor with lighting design by artist Edward Ruiz.
Infusoria is an audio-visual installation by Megan Arzaga, Brett Bolton and Benton Corder in which users participate in the growth rate and evolution of generative organisms.
Showgirl Video, also by Bolton and Corder, is a real-time audio-visual performance that showcases the truly unpredictable and beautifully flawed nature of electronic live performance. The piece explores the organic textures and features of the natural world in digital forms.
"Cycles" is part of the week-long program of Aurora 2018. Both immersive and engaging, the main Aurora event is an expansive art event that transforms downtown Dallas into an open-air, urban playground of new media art with installations on an unprecedented scale. Featuring work by both local and international artists, visitors have the opportunity to see a familiar urban environment transformed into an interactive site for some of the world’s most innovative contemporary art.
