Gallery: Fuse*’s Everything in Existence at ARTECHOUSE

Fuse* creates "living" art that changes before one's eyes

Everything in Existence

The first solo exhibition in the United States of fuse* highlights the evolution, over the past decade, of this Italian art studio’s practice, which focuses on exploring the expressive potential of emerging digital technologies.

Some of fuse*’s most significant works to date are presented in four multimedia installations inviting audiences to experience different perceptions of reality and new perspectives designed to remind us that we are all part of something bigger, that we exist in a state of interconnectedness.

The works in Everything in Existence are generated by software processing data in real time, whether the data is derived from interaction with the viewer (“Snowfall”), social networks (“Amygdala”), sound (“Clepsydra”), or the software itself (“Multiverse”).

Through such generative technique, fuse* creates “living” art that changes before one’s eyes and rewards prolonged viewing and repeat visits — in a way that also parallels the relationship between humans and the forces that push us towards the unknown.

ArTecHouse will be serving Augmented Reality Cocktails inspired by the exhibition during evening sessions. On display through March 10. ArTecHouse is at 1238 Maryland Ave. SW. Tickets for hourly timed-entry sessions are $12 to $20 for daytime or $20 for evening admission including access to After Hours cocktails, sold separately. Visit www.dc.artechouse.com.
