Multimedia Artist and Filmmaker aAron Munson is in full meditation as part of his new installation exhibit called SIT STILL TAKE NOTICE. As Munson sits for eight hours a day over the course of 30 days, six 3D printers will work to produce hundreds of black and white Buddha heads. At the same time, collaborator sound artist Gary James Joynes will combine the sound of the printers with a six-channel generative score featuring a series of six individual pure tones. Nicola Tesla postulated that, when these would be presented together (individually in a pattern surrounding the listener), it would have the potential to open the human Pineal (aka the spiritual third eye). Until Oct. 3.
