Every building follows a script. Hallways and foyers direct people in certain directions, theme parks offer visitors an emotional journey while churches and temples have their stories to tell. Alternate Universal Studios featuring the work of artists Rosie Deacon, J.D. Reforma, Marilyn Schneider and Giselle Stanborough sets out to highlight the often invisible ways buildings and environments like shopping centres, airports and theme parks are constructed experiences with a ideological purpose. Using sculpture, video, installation and the web, the artists hope to highlight the code behind the walls and set the visitor free.
Until April 21, Firstdraft Gallery, 116-118 Chalmers Street, Surry Hills.
