Our good friend Ben Houge‘s first visual exhibition, 29 Giraffes, opens today at [the studio] on Julu Lu today at 6pm, with a special sound performance starting at 8pm.
What is 29 Giraffes? According to Ben, it’s “a selection of algorithmically generated digital prints, created using a custom computer program to reshuffle snippets of photographs into kaleidoscopic new constellations.” We’re not completely sure what that means, but it involves a program Ben wrote that functions as a digital to real world paintbrush of sorts. It’s bound to be interesting, and from the looks of the artwork, pretty!
The opening reception will feature a live performance by Ben Houge, as he releases his new CD, Radiospace 040823 as well. Radiospace is a montage of Shanghai radio broadcasts turned into ambient music.
Oh Ben, what will you think of next?
