Object Says is a series of interactive electronic sculptures based on household mechanisms. The often-unnoticed light switches, smoke detectors, faucets, thermostats, doorknobs, all play an under-appreciated roll in our daily lives. We touch them and we expect only the expected from them. This work is about subverting what we know, crushing expectations and creating a playful and imaginative environment for people to explore.

Opening Reception: Feb 21st at 7pm
