Royal NoneSuch Gallery is pleased to present [You] Illusion [Were] Translation [Thinking] And [This] Reality, a collaboration between artists Casey Logan and Adam Hathaway.

Artists Casey Logan and Adam Hathaway will convert Royal NoneSuch Gallery into a mechanical eye and brain. On the left side of the gallery is the world that actually exists, or reality.  Reality is observed by the mechanical eye (a video camera) and translated digitally to the mechanical brain on the right side of the gallery (a projector), which then attempts to accurately describe the reality its eye observed.  Much like its biological counterpart, this mechanical translation is inherently flawed.  Instead of a perfect reflection of reality, the mechanical mind gives us a depiction of the world that is vague and skewed, thereby creating a more accurate depiction of the world in which we operate than what is considered reality, therein creating the question: what is the difference between the projected image and the recorded image? Through their collaboration, Casey Logan and Adam Hathaway confront the slippage that occurs between the world that we think exists and the world that actually is.
