Opening Reception – Alarming

February 28

Art Gym Denver is thrilled to present Alarming by K. Vuletich in Common Space Gallery with an opening reception February 28 from 5 – 8PM. On display through March 22, 2019. Free and open to the public.

K. Vuletich’s practice is a combination of thought-provoking concept and exploration of materials. Her new series Alarming continues on this practice, using mixed media collage and motion-activated audio technology to discuss the ways in which our phones, and the apps on them, alter and change who we are. When discussing this new piece, she stated “In a time where the line between fact and fiction has been blurred by the constant inundation of ads, notifications, and news, our identity in relationship to technology is rapidly changing.” Vuletich’s installation is made up of small panels with painting and collage, using the warning/hazard icon and app logos. This, combined with corresponding images on in the collage and thematic sounds, forces the participant to evaluate their own relationship with our technology. In the end, Vuletich gives us all the opportunity to ask, “could our interaction with technology be the next stage of human evolution or are we, as Kurt Vonnegut suggests, ‘serving as appendages, to machines’?”
