I’m grateful for the incredible outpouring of love and support at this wonderful opening reception. Even on such a cold winter day, it was so packed I could hardly move!

Opening Reception: Friday, December 9, 6pm – 9pm

Sla307 is pleased to present a group exhibition inspired by the term Smart Dust:

The term “Smart Dust” was dreamed up by UC Berkeley Professor Kris Pister in the 1990s. In this futuristic conception, the planet is sprinkled with zillions of micro-electro mechanical systems (MEMS), which monitor, detect, and interpret everything on Earth: light, temperature, vibration, magnetism, weight, chemicals, and by extension, human thoughts, feelings, and desires. In a poetic way, this neural dust acts like the planet’s central nervous system. In a more dystopian interpretation, it can become an ultimate totalitarian mind control machine.
