the basic stages
Joe Winter

Exhibition on view December 14, 2013 - January 11, 2014
OPENING RECEPTION: Saturday, December 14, 7-10pm


The stone tool and the digital 3D model: the basic stages departs from these two technological artifacts. The stone tool affords a view to the past, a material process honed in humanity's infancy. The 3D model looks toward the future, an immaterial imagining of the not-yet made, the "coming soon." Looking forward and backward in time collapse in an installation that suggests both a site of construction and excavation, a future home and an unearthed burial ground of things past.
