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 scalesfrom 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, Woolfs Darkness: Embracing the Inexplicable, she advises to travel light when it comes to preconception and to enter the darkness with [our] eyes open. Woolfs Darknessor the Inexplicable is a zone of ambiguity, a liminal space where ideology and consciousness can shift and expand.

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.
