DESCRIPTION

Since the advent of our internet age, Michael Rees has been redefining objects by using digital technology and innovative material to engage contemporary themes and subjects with sculpture. Michael Rees: Synthetic Cells presents an unparalleled dialogue between object, perception, and reality. His newest sculptures challenge the viewer to question how the boundaries of our physical and digital experiences are converging. 

Site (Para) Site, the augmented reality portion of this exhibition, was guest curated by noted digital experts, Murat Orozobekov and Edward Winkleman, who founded the Moving Image. These digital overlays were created by Michael Rees as well as three other artists invited to collaborate on this project: Claudia Hart, Chris Manzione, and Will Pappenheimer.  In the fall of 2018, three more artists will supply augmented reality experiences: John Craig Freeman, Tamiko Thiel, and Carla Gannis.
