IcTus Gallery is pleased to p resent Ancient-Future-Super-Natural\, a multimedia group show that w ill prove to us that anything is possible in 2012!  Please join us on Satur day May 5th\, from 6-10pm for the exhibition opening. This new show feature s work by Takehito Etani\, Ben Herndon\, Alice Könitz\, Mei-ling Humphrey\, Gregory Ito\, Kyoung-ah Kang\,  Edmundo de Marchena\, Chris Novak\, Melony Wofford Bravmann and a garden installation show by Korean artist Choi Jeon g Hwa.

\n

In a similar spirit to the creation of the Ant ikythera mechanism\, the world's oldest known mechanical computer\, the se artists employ their far-sighted lenses to envision our future. Their in ventions are that much more unique\, because they utilize everyday objects such as yarn\, plywood\, Tupperware\, and other utilitarian items to realiz e their visions. Takehito Etani masterminds the Third-Eye Project\, inventi ng wearable devices that allow us to observe our own selves sensing the wor ld (spiritual prosthetics). Alice Konitz reinvents the utopian vision of de sign’s ability to facilitate social change by constructing geometric forms out of cardboard and plastic. Mei-ling Humphrey’s embroidered hangings expl ore the continual passage of time and the practice of handiwork: she sees t he physical stitch as an index of her body's movement through time. Gregory Ito’s 2-dimensional paintings not only play with our visual perceptions\, but they also integrate organic and celestial themes with a hypnotic use of iridescent color. Finally\, Choi Jeong Hwa crafts entire environments out of simple household items\, demonstrating his belief that ‘art’ itself will one day disappear and just be a common place occurrence that we all live w ithin.
