DESCRIPTION
This Saturday, December 17th, from 7-10pm, we are pleased to announce a complete takeover of Control Room by The Reality™ Institute, and Reality™ Incorporated, Co. Please join us for an evening of mind-bending installations, videos, performances, as well as a set of readings that will take place at 8:30pm.  

Writer Michael Molitch-Hou will be inhabiting physical space for the first time ever with his ongoing project, The Reality™ Institute. With a community of friends and artists, the Institute explores the idea of representing representation and how the symbols of language and culture lead to a displacement from awareness of the present moment. Words and abstract thought, humanity's most complex and valuable tool, allow us to create inspirational forms of art, but also the most elaborate of illusions. Applying these tools in a series of physical and theoretical investigations, the Institute endeavors to determine what the boundaries of reality™ are in our increasingly abstract environment. By defining these accelerating slippages in the structures of perception, knowledge, and belief, in matter-of-fact terms, The Reality™ Institute provides the assistance needed for self-aware entities to be aware of where they are. At least in relation to where they aren't. Come for a free trial, this Saturday.
