Sun. May 13th: Joseph Farbrook

Join us for a special artist talk with Joseph Farbrook whose work is currently on display as part of Now You See It…

Farbrook’s piece Amorphous Ball is an augmented reality kinetic sculpture. He writes about it, “We’ve come to expect that the device that we carry in our pocket will be all things at once. One by one, our other things are beginning to disappear as this pocket toy becomes the only toy that we play with. We’ve lost our cameras, camcorders, postcards, letters, notes, maps, tape recorders, flashlights, radios, stereos, watches, wallet photos, newspapers, calculators, answering machines, not to mention telephones. Like an amorphous ball, this shape-shifting device that we carry has also absorbed boredom, getting lost, physical contact, eye contact, talking, meeting, connecting, observing, remembering, asking advice, and discovering by chance.”

This talk is on Mothers Day and the final day of the exhibition. We would love to see you and your mother!

When: Sunday, May 13th, 4pm
Where: Boston Cyberarts Gallery, 141 Green St., Jamaica Plain, MA (next to the Green Street Station)
Presenter: Joseph Farbrook
