If you're into three-dimensional space, "here" is where you'll want to be. Sort of a part two to his first show, "come" at Dorsch Gallery, local artist Mark Koven will mix in video, morphing imagery, soundscapes, cars, and "interactive" elements -- that's right, you too can be part of a show! "come" included "bumpers" who walked up and ran into you; who knows who or what will replace the bumping kids this time. Don't dawdle, "here" is a one-night event only, taking over a Surreal Saturday slot at Little Havana's PS 742, starting at 9:00 p.m. on Saturday, December 6 (tickets cost $7.42), 1165 SW 6th St.; 305-324-0585.
