Instead of fast-changing prepositions—”post,” “anti,” “neo,” “trans,” and “sub”—that suggest an implacable movement forward, against or beyond, and try desperately to be “in,” I propose to go off: “Off” as in “off kilter,” off Broadway, “off the path,” or “way off,” off-brand, off the wall and occasionally “off-color.” “Off-modern” is a detour into the unexplored potentials of the modern project. —Svetlana Boym The Off-Modern Condition

With over 220 color-lush objects on three floors, Outsight Inn is a cloister for regenerative visual systems. In quantum physics the “observer effect” refers to changes that the act of observation makes on the phenomenon being experienced. Witness 26 Solo Projects where examination flips the commonplace inside out. Similar to the topological single sided Klein/Möbius bottle, art interiors meld with their own exteriors, sum greater than whole. These artworks radiate a seductive invitation, simultaneously hiding and revealing a latent reward for each guest. Sequestered visceral energy is released through the sheer physics, economics, or memory of ones sensory encounter with these adroit presentations. Ride the wave, or is it a particle? Outsight Inn opens the ludic door to a quantum mindset for an interlude in real time.
