An installation by Lauren Markland

Press Start is an immersive installation where the viewer takes the place of a character in a video game. Players are able to choose from one of three classes, view items in a shop, and interact with the shopkeeper. Each class has sets of armor and weapons specific to its trade, but there’s a catch: the items vary within class depending on gender. Video games are a huge part of popular culture with an equally split gender demographic, yet so many female characters are designed by and marketed to men. As a result, armor and weapon design for these characters becomes overly sexualized, impractical, and more often than not, both. Press Start humorously imposes these tropes on men, while also empowering women through practicality and representation within a medium.

Jamele Wright Presents: Self-determination Comparing Uli and Graffiti Art

In Association with SSA Smoke School of Art:
This educational series installment compares and contrasts the art of Uli, indigenous to the Igbo people of Nigeria, with graffiti art of the 1970s and 1980s. Similarities when it comes to the individual intent and mark will be shown along with the lineage of African creativity and the ability to personalize that uniqueness. Corresponding agencies will be discussed in the midst of Uli and younger generations hundreds of years later that express and exert themselves in a society intent on suppressing their individuality and oppressing them mentally and financially.

Public Domain presents - Apparent Horizon May 30, 2015

Price:  free

Eyedrum art and music gallery is proud to present “Apparent Horizon: Deep Time, Surveillance, and De/Reconstitution of the Human Subject” a group show of work by Atlanta artists Jim Demmers, Robert Cheatham, and Chea Prince.

This exhibit will examine surveillance culture, personal agency, and the limits of our ability to clearly observe how underlying patterns affect our lives and culture.

From the artists statement: “As humans, we consider deep time as well as the Situationist’s “beach beneath the sidewalk” as both works of science and surveillance. Public Domain, through this metaphorical walkabout, speculates on the nature of our species’ circumstances by illuminating the forces of environmental intrusion and the economies of surveillance that facilitate our megacosmic dérive.”
