Fringe Exhibitions is extremely pleased to present new work by Bay Area artists Kal Spelletich and John Colle Rogers.

BB-Qing at the opening!

In the Main Gallery, Kal Spelletich investigates the use of audio and light frequencies to generate altered states of consciousness. Experimenting with binaural-beat stimulation and frequency following response theories the interactive
installation is a recreation of an unsolved mystery at a home in the Mission district of San Francisco. Included in the show a diorama of the actual house, video, drawings, and photographs exploring these phenomena. Special thank you to Rebecca Sanford-Smith for diorama collaboration, Rich Stone for audio, also help from Jonathan Foote and Don Gray.

The Lower Level features sculpture and video by John Colle Rogers. “Shelf Life” is an ongoing series of small vignettes made of objects found on the streets of Oakland. It is a way of reckoning with the consumption and expulsion of objects, and an attempt at making precious that, which has been forgotten. “Oakland Flow” is a video exploring different modes of transportation around the city. Focusing primarily on the freeways, the video delves into the sound and movement above and below the concrete maze. Special thank you to Aaron C. Strickler and Mary C. Wilson for video collaboration.
