Gallery transformed by Trains/Commuters

ENDOSYMBIONT:: Curated by Dana Moser :: June 7 - July 15 :: Opening Reception: Thursday, June 7, 6-9 p.m. :: Gallery Hours: Wednesday, Thursday 6-9pm, Saturday, 2-5pm, or by appointment :: AXIOM Gallery.

Artists Jake Lee High, Jerel Dye, Sean O’Brien, and Fred Wolflink redefine the AXIOM gallery as an interactive monument. The gallery space is metaphorically transformed into a biological cell that feeds off the sounds and electromagnetic fields of passing MBTA trains. Viewers’ interactions with the interior and exterior of the gallery reshape conditions within the cell, while at the same time, drain the cell’s energy. Through the use of sensors and cameras, pedestrians, as both variable and viewer, affect the cell’s functions- including video, lighting, motors and other electronic instruments. Taking advantage of the unique location of the gallery, and through analysis of people’s daily commutes, the gallery space engages the public and enriches their transit routines.

AXIOM Gallery is located on the ground floor level of the Green Street Subway ("T") station on the Orange line, at the corner of Amory and Green Streets.
