Locally Localized Gravity

“Hello God…are you there? Its us Space 1026.”

Space 1026 is spreading our signature visual chaos within the walls of the Institute of Contemporary Art as part of Locally Localized Gravity.

Come play with us! There will be awesome art, musical events, tshirt printing events and much, much more. Come to the opening on Friday, January 19th 6-8 pm at the Institute of Contemporary Art at the University of Pennsylvania at 118 South 36th Street, the exhibition runs January 20-March 25th, 2007.

The installation we have created is based loosely on the domain of the Ewoks, diminutive arboreal beings who share a communal space. Though they have yet to master advanced technology, they have nonetheless erected impressive villages high within the trees. Our “village” installation at the ICA, like that of the Ewoks use a combination of rope ladders to ascend, but ours are even better, because they are made entirely out of recycled shopping bags and refuse wood. Our Space 1026 team has braided over 800 feet of plastic rope and printed over 2,500 recycled cardboard shingles to create our massive tree house structure! A fantastic video kiosk tower, interactive electronics, campfire, a gigantic cardboard ziggurat, and a tree house gallery create a fantastical Utopian space for you to enjoy.
