More of my favorite things: Survival Research Labs opened a brand new gallery show at Fringe Exhibitions in Los Angeles this past weekend.

SRL engages new vocabularies by integrating machines, theatrical sets and props, with dramatic, visual metaphors bringing to life, large-scale mechanical performances for audiences that rival other popular culture events. By taking things to extreme ends, SRL attempts to create new levels of sensory and emotional intensity. Using diverse disciplines such as performance, literature, and engineering, in concert with artistic expression, ideas are transformed into visceral experiences. Employing technology to the fullest and breaking new ground by trying to build collaboration between art and electronic culture, the creative work of SRL is constantly evolving as advances in new technologies are being developed. We are just beginning to scratch the surface on understanding the potential of technology and its relationship to contemporary art. With the assimilation of machine to technology, cultural transformations take place. The evolution of electronic culture is a change in the dynamics of society, representation and experience.

Fringe Exhibitions is a new exhibition space dedicated to showing cutting edge and experimental art projects that focus on installation, video, new media art, and art that engages with technology.

Exhibition Dates: January 21 - February 25, 2006
Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 12 - 6
Location: 504 Chung King Court, Los Angeles, CA 90012
