CULTURE SHOCK presents BOOM!, a good old-fashioned celebration of technology, creativity, physicality, and art.
The BOOM! exhibition experience begins in the elevators taking visitors to the show, where a series of generative animation artworks by Glenn Marshall will be screened, including Supernova, Eyegasm and Zio.
When input/output jacks were incorporated into boomboxes, allowing for the coupling of devices such as microphones and turntables, an explosion of creativity occurred. New forms of dance emerged, new forms of music, as cultural experimentation was taken to the streets. This installation pays homage to that energy.
