Artifacts: a Plane of the Possible
This exhibition features works by Portland-based artists Hyun Jung Jung, Katherine Spinella, Jessie Wietzel, Brittney Connelly, and Russell Borne. Curated by McKenzie Lee, this exhibition examines ideas of both physical and digital artifacts in our present/future tense through a variety of media.
While exploring compression in the flattening of our experience through low resolution internet images or developing an archive of neo-geological casts and prints that examine the philosophies of our consumer ideologies, these artists probe questions that speak to our contemporary worldview. Creating electric pop objects made for an imaginary town and its citizens or by embedding the virtual into our physical sense of touch through wearable objects, we imagine what is possible and lost in our mediated world.

Things I've Found
To find is to come in contact with something for the very first time. It can allude to rediscovering meaningful somethings you thought you’d lost. You can find yourself enjoying moments and persons that once annoyed you. You find yourself when you finally take that risk. You find the best in others. You find meaning in objects.
