    Null Extension Video, Soundscapes, and Images by

    Null Extension Video, Soundscapes, and Images by Kadet Kuhne

    Start Date: Friday 4/6/2018 — End Date: Saturday 5/5/2018
    Admission:Free

    Null Extension delves into the spatial confinement of subjective perception. The line between subject and viewer, inescapability and endurance, limitations and potentiality, is stretched and pushed beyond comfort. Despite the structures that define and confine us, through altered states achieved in moments of suspension of time and space, our bodies can become a site of liberation and transcendence.

    Aggregate Space Gallery presents immersive works by Kadet Kuhne in which the traveling viewpoint of the individual experience, contrasted with infinite expansion, allows an unraveling of monolithic understanding toward the process of becoming.

    Opening Reception
    6 April 6-10pm

    Second Saturday Artists Talk
