The Unfolded Crystal: Seduction of the Hyperreal
Curated by Melissa Moore
OPENING RECEPTION AUGUST 6, 6-9PM
THE STAMP GALLERY/ UNIVERSITY OF MARYLAND
AUGUST 3 – 14TH, 2009

Artists: Jen Kirby, Gina Denton, Ayako Kataoka, and Jenny Graf Sheppard

The Unfolded Crystal: Seduction of the Hyperreal attempts to materialize an existence that reaches beyond the capabilities of human consciousness. We perceive the world according to the parameters of three-dimensional space. Seduction of the Hyperreal challenges these limitations by pushing one further into the absolute realm of existence where there is nothing, beyond concept, where one may transcend above reality to the realm of the “hyperreal.”

The work of Melissa Moore, Jen Kirby, Gina Denton, Jenny Graf Sheppard, and Ayako Kataoka aims to create such an environment through the use of multi-disciplinary approaches including installation, sound, video, sculpture, and constructed objects.

The Stone Carving Oraclestra will also perform the evening of the reception–featuring artists, Serena Williams, Miranda Bushey, Katherine Porter, Shana Palmer and J.Graf
