Troy Richards, The Hoarders II – Information Translated @ Crane Arts Center.
The University of Delaware faculty exhibit, Information Translated, is a futuristic trip into an art world where video projectors follow the actors around the room on a robotic platform (a movie called Knock by Lance Winn & Toronto artist Simone Jones), Legos and computers work in conjunction with movement and sound to create an experience design and normal appearing prints reveal underlying messages as if a computer memory kernel has exploded. The show restores DoN‘s appreciation of how video can be incorporated into an art show without seeming like a knock-off of Warhol. By utilizing off-the-shelf components combined into innovative new forms, the UD faculty have created an inspirational, aspirational show that is sure to trigger new neural pathways for UD art students. The space is an adjunct gallery for University of Delaware artists to display their work away from campus in the heart of one of Philly’s vibrant, emerging art centers. The downstairs space is especially exciting with several video/robot installations that excite the eye and confuse the senses. Check out the UD website for a statement about the show, but really, this show has to be seen to be believed.
