“Images in this exhibition represent an unforeseen residue of technological advancement. In that sense, they are works of science fiction. While revolutionary technologies often bring convenience and efficiency to our lives, their long-term effects are never fully understood. The digital technology used to produce these images exists outside of the physical/material world. I'm interested in how this technology eventually manifests into something tangible.” —Patrick Loehr

In our ever growing and strangely shrinking contemporary world it has become commonplace to travel great distances in a matter of hours. What has made this shrinking of the globe possible is air travel. In the United States alone, there are nearly 87,000 commercial flights per day! Consequently, at any given moment there is an overwhelming number of airplanes, full of people, in the skies above our heads.

Dylan J. Beck has been exploring air travel and its potential effects on climate and culture. In his exhibition, Plume Age, Dylan looks to flight patterns and densities, land use associated with the air travel infrastructure, and the sky to find inspiration for his sculptures. Because his work includes various approaches and media, from hand-built ceramics to digital imagery, Dylan Beck's exhibition at VERTIGO Art Space is visually striking as well as contemplative.

Applied_Pressure_by_Charles_Wilkin_t

Curated by Mario Zoots.

Inspired by Baudrillard. "To challenge and to cope with this paradoxical state of things, we need a paradoxical way of thinking; since the world drifts into delirium, we must adopt a delirious point of view."

Charles Wilkin will give a talk about his creative process. His assemblages attempt to transpose disjointed remnants of media overload and targeted consumption into tangible yet uncertain analogies. His motivation and objective is simply to mirror our behavior by fusing these cultural fragments into new stories that challenge our collective assumptions and aspirations.

Photomontage + collage exhibition of artists that span across Los Angeles, Denver, New York, Amsterdam, Norway, and the grave (listed alphabetically):
