Portland conceptual artist Abraham Ingle‘s first solo show is quite a curious one. Starting today at False Front Studio in Portland, Ingle will be displayed his socially-inspired art. The show, entitled If A Tree Falls… consists of all new practice projects which explore notions of presence in the age of “always on.” You should definitely visit this blog post on Ingle’s website to view more of the summary, but I’ll pick and choose a couple of interesting components to the six-part show:
Interruptionsis a series of three videos that mix content from social media, drama, and real life to explore interaction. Interruptions was made in collaboration with Dustin Zemel.
A collaboration with The Portrait Booth Project, This is How I See You uses portraiture to juxtapose states of hyper-awareness and obliviousness.
The entire show will be streaming on Chat Roulette the entire time. YES.
Vivian Hua (華婷婷) wears a lot of random hats, but has somewhat mastered globetrotting like a hobo and evading traditional 9-to-5 work schedules. She enjoys observing human idiosyncrasies perhaps more than anything and is a magnet for homeless people (a joy) and bug bites of all types (absolutely terrible). Through her work, she hopes to embrace the temporary while documenting the nostalgic, using divination and dream symbolism as guides through the cosmic maze. Additional writing, art, video, and other crap, like her astrological chart, can be seen at www.inallthings-patterns.net. She is the Editor-in-Chief of REDEFINE magazine, and quite appreciates unsolicited personal e-mails just to shoot the shit and narrow the gaps between human beings.
