“…There are no countries now….” From artist Alan Bigelow’s When I was President

Theory+ Practice is an acknowledgement, interrogation and fete of the void between what the world could be and what it is. Web artist and writer Alan Bigelow’s interactive piece, When I was President is an interactive projection that details a presidency ended by a suicide bomber: “a high school teacher from Des Moines.” “She said it was the only way to make the world right again.” Site-specific sculptural works by Brian Wondergem include a 15-foot high Ferris wheel built exclusively out of ladders, suggestive of both an extreme pragmatism as well as yearning for escape.

Artists: Andrew Leo Baron, Alan Bigelow, Deric Carner, Robert Ladislas Derr, Nisha Drinkard, Katarina Jerinic, Darren Jones, Tracie Lee, Paula McCartney, Tori Purcell, Stephanie Standish, Alina Tenser, Matthew Verdon, Brian Wondergem
