The new solo show, Words, by Caracas-born poet and artist Yucef Merhi deploys old and new, factory-made and home-hacked, obsolete and up-to-date technologies to track the superspeed mutation of modern language. Using networked Atari consoles, synchronized light installations, and custom web-based software, Merhi sends phrases like Breeding sculptures of Siamese wolves through the matrix of artist, user, and machine. These are word games beyond the page.
Tuesdays-Saturdays. Starts: May 20. Continues through June 8, 2010
