"Systems and Subversions" features several art projects that create, examine, and/or disrupt natural and artificial systems. Featuring both high-tech, digital artworks and low-tech “DIY” inspired projects, the exhibition engages issues of audience co-creation of content, participation, and interactivity. Each piece in the exhibition either creates a system in which the audience may participate, uncovers hidden systems, or actively unravels (or hacks) pre-established systems to achieve alternative aims. The exhibition features projects by Nurit Bar-Shai, Jon Cohrs, Scott Johnson, Graham Wakefield and Haru Ji, and Marina Zurkow. Associated programming and events address issues of bio-hacking and bio-ethics, manipulation of the environment, and the “fair use” of DNA. "Systems and Subversions" is part of "Cross-Creations: Gods and Monsters," a community-wide series of arts events. Visit http://crosscreationscollab.com/for a full list of exhibitions and events. IDEA Space hours: Monday-Saturday, 1-7 p.m. Closed September 25-29 for block break.
