April 22, 2017 Mizin Shin
CEPA Gallery is pleased to present, How Things Are Made by printmaker and multi-disciplinary artist Mizin Shin. Created as a site-specific immersive print installation, featuring an interactive audio interface, Shin has wrapped the third floor passageway in a custom hand-printed wallpaper. An opening reception with the artist took place on Friday, April 21, 2017 from 7-10pm.
For How Things Are Made, viewers enter a sound-filled corridor wallpapered in hand-printed woodcuts that depict a range of manufacturing and production processes. The prints cover every surface from the ceiling to the floor and the walls between. The viewer is challenged to find an origin or conclusion to the complex system within the surrounding prints. Interconnections are formed from every direction as the various patterns blend into each other. Though each element of the system may at first seem to exist in isolation, further investigation into the relationships of these intricate networks begin to more clearly reveal patterns of consequence in these webs of interconnectivity.
