Open Friday, March 28. 7-10 p.m.

Produce, Consume transforms grunt gallery’s media lab into a multifaceted playground of website artworks and displays. Visit grunt gallery for this special weeklong exhibition that invites the public to access and explore new tools for sharing, seeing, and becoming.

Artists and teams around the globe participate and facilitate interactive art websites. These nine art sites include a tool to create something: a file, jpeg, mp3, gif, or text. Each file explores a component of human sensory interaction: sound and audio; touch and feeling; seeing and being seen; commerce and language. User engagement with these tools creates a file that is catalogued and immortalized forever online. The role of the traditional ‘artist’ is subverted as the artists act as facilitators, programmers or playground supervisors within this online landscape. The audience is encouraged to explore these digitally created tools, producing new works by interaction and participation.
