On View: Synesthetic Ciphers

Jan 10, 2020 - Feb 29, 2020


We have an inherent need to decode and decipher patterns and symbols. The artists featured in SYNESTHETIC CIPHERS challenge and deconstruct conventional modes of language to interpret new meanings behind symbols.

Can artwork derived from and inspired by transcription be non-metaphoric? Can using alternate forms of stimuli be experienced, rather than read? Through dismantling traditional written language into indistinguishable mark-making and cross-sensory experiences, this group exhibition encourages us to play with and recreate the conventional role of language.
