Katie Switzer & Paul Moleiro - Generate and Reflect [edited excerpt]

Though cloaked in some curator-speak that didn't do much to inform what this show would be like, the event's Cronenbergesque title gave some hint of what was going to unfold. A cybernetic concept show where the "systems" played the pieces (with humans at hand to merely assist), the half-dozen installations/mini-sets ranged from the new-fangled and buzzy (neural networks!) to the recently-retro (watching MS Paint dry) to good ol' fashioned Rube Goldberg machines. The visuals were the real stars of the night, but there were interesting sonics attached to most of the projects as well. A nice icy blipdrone helped make this one of the night's most satisfying experiments, with some old-school refract/reflect techniques mixing seamlessly with digital projections.
