the Ashcan Institue for Self-Organising Pattern Reseach

 Now Showing at Big Law Country Club (located in Silent Barn 603 Bushwick Ave) until July 17th.

Some stills from the exhibit to entice:

























Building upon Ashcan’s fetish for unprocessed quirks in physical reality, it is presenting a glimpse into the recent investigations of the “Ashcan Institute for Self-Organising Pattern Research”. The gallery space at Big Law Country Club is currently transformed into a study on a single specimen “found” during the Institute’s research into analog video feedback. A multitude of moving and still depictions of the image are on sidplay, allowing the visitor to step within and be encompassed by this particular paragon of the astounding weirdness of the physical universe.
