Headlands Gallery – Responsive Eye Part II: Black Square
Perhaps best known as a master of computer animation, Peter Burr’s (AIR ‘19) exhibition consists of several concurrent installations: Part I: People, Kid Games, and the Infinite at Telematic’s SOMA West gallery space; Part II: Black Square, presented by Telematic at Minnesota Street Project’s Black Box Gallery, and Part III: theshapeofempty.space presented online with support from Headlands Center for the Arts. The multi-part exhibition examines contemporary life in the grid and animates a philosophy of perception through a series of optical illusions, highlighting the limitations of our awareness. Through a friction of artificial human bodies and technologically-driven abstraction, a portrait emerges of an anxious, divided society testing the boundaries of attention.
