The mesocosm is the realm that we, as humans, are able to perceive with our senses. From our perspective, we are in the meso, the middle. The human scale appears to be between the outermost micro and macro scales—from subatomic particles like quarks and neutrinos to the universe or multiverse. While orienting from this position, we also create and use tools, both material and imagined, experiential and theoretical, to access scales many orders of magnitude smaller and larger.

How do we construct conceptions of the world around us? Adult consciousness tends to be focused like a spotlight, automatically making assumptions about the periphery and filling in the blanks. As a species thought to be capable of complex self-awareness, long-term planning and the ability to override impulses, why is it useful to understand perceptual processes that are normally subconscious? In some ways, impulse control plays a large role in the evolution of our species, of being able to consciously shape the world around us, but many of our day-to-day activities occur on autopilot. In the Rebecca Solnit essay, “Woolf’s Darkness: Embracing the Inexplicable,” she advises “to travel light when it comes to preconception” and to enter the darkness “with [our] eyes open.” Woolf’s “Darkness”—or the “Inexplicable”— is a zone of ambiguity, a liminal space where ideology and consciousness can shift and expand.

“A Trip to the Moon”
restored in its original 1902 colors
“The Extraordinary Voyage”
documentary on the restoration of “A Trip to the Moon” followed by a brief tour of the exhibition with artists Dolores Zorreguieta and Genevieve Quick. All admission free!

Artists Frank Aguilar, Deborah Edmeades, Genevieve Quick, and Dolores Zorreguieta present a dystopian view in their search for new century survival tactics. Issues dear to science fiction and folk tales: the paranormal, the esoteric, and the futuristic are recognized in work depicting monstrosity, metamorphosis, and epic journeys to alien worlds.

Exhibition continues through March 20.

Making a Scene Publication

On the work of Torreya Cummings, Bessma Khalaf, and the Center for Tactical Magic
With essays by Michele Carlson, Sarah Hotchkiss, and Genevieve Quick
Designed by Seth Ferris and Lauren Harden.
Published by Southern Exposure, San Francisco.

Or view it online through

Southern Exposure is excited to share a new online publication created in conjunction with the fall 2012 project Making a Scene. Michele Carlson, Sarah Hotchkiss, and Genevieve Quick were commissioned to respond to the artists' unfolding work. Making a Scene was a project by Torreya Cummings, Bessma Khalaf, and the Center for Tactical Magic, who all took up residency at Southern Exposure in October 2012 to develop new projects on site. Each of these artists plays with the mundane and the magical in transformative or risky experiments that provoke their viewers to performative, unexpected and humorous acts. During their three-week projects, the artists invited participants to engage in unexpected and performative ways as they develop new bodies of work and build on installations in process.
