Opening reception Saturday, May 1st from 6p.m.-8p.m
Please join Richard Karsten to preview: "Beyond Color: Achromatic Phenomena," his book exploring the visual phenomena that influence the way we see and feel about surfaces and objects that surround us. Simply put, achromatic phenomena are those attributes outside of color that affect the way something appears. Fundamental examples are luster, gloss, transparency, luminosity and iridescence. This is an exploration of how we see surfaces and objects in art, design and nature as demonstrated by inspired photography and visual experiments.
Design C.L.O.T.(Collective League of Talent) is an exhibition of bold new work from emerging designers on view at powerHouse Books in Dumbo from April 27th though May 9th. The show features work of Masters of Industrial Design graduates, a conglomeration of various ideas and inspirations that are united by an intrepid drive to improve our material world through meaningful objects and ideas.
Beer, wine and hors d'oeuvres will be served.
