Riviera Gallery

Reception: Thursday, July 17, 7 - 10 PM

Meredith Dittmar, Emily Gobeille & Theodore Watson have taken the Riviera Gallery space and transformed it into miniature worlds containing invented fantastical flora and fauna.

Viewing portals bring visitors into a world where they can interact with the animated creatures who live there. Visitors can use their voice, cell phones, keys – any object – to communicate with and ‘feed’ the creatures. They will react differently to the various sounds that are made, learning and building a sound memory over time. When people are not interacting with the creatures they carry on with their normal behaviors.

Surrounding the portals, a larger world has been created, invading the space with vines and plants that guide visitors through Dittmar’s world of polymer creatures, great and small.
