Reifier features over 150 computationally based sculptures and prints by Luke Demarest and the Blackspace Conscious Coding Wokeshop. Works explore language, wordplay, and communication tools that affect how we make meaning in contemporary society. The exhibition aims to create a relaxed and open environment where all gallery visitors can create new thought processes around how we use language and art.
