Friday, September 17th from Saturday, November 6th, 2010

You Complete Me, opening at Urban Culture Project’s Paragraph gallery, 23 East 12th Street, on Friday September 17, 6-9pm,  is an exhibition of interactive audio and video installations by HACK.ART.LAB, a Wichita-based disciplinary collective comprised of artists, programmers and engineers. Members are Ann Resnick, Kristin Beal-DeGrandmont, John Harrison, Ivy Lanning, Lauren Hirsh, and Tom McGuire.  The show runs through November 6.

You Complete Me explores relationships between viewers and technology, and the role that cooperation plays in creative endeavors. Viewers are invited to be active collaborators in the creation of several interactive audio and video installations, which present infinite possibilities and enable viewers to share authorship as they influence outcomes. From Ghost in the Machine, which plays with viewers’ temporal and spatial perceptions through a series of live, recorded and delayed playback using a webcam, Pd and a tv; to June, Kristin Beal-DeGrandmont’s self-lit, modular, kinetic, relief sculpture that references the cinematic experience of riding in the car along Kansas highways—the works by this multi-talented collective promise to create an immersive environment appealing to audiences of all ages and backgrounds, actively involving viewers in a process of learning and discovery.

Opening weekend also features Sneak Peak Under the Hood: An Open House Event, Saturday, September 18, 12-5pm, where Hack.Art.Lab and special guests, the Computer Cowtown Congress (CCCKC) hacker space, will teach visitors about the technical side of their projects through workshops and demos.
