On view through November 12, 2017

Shih Chieh Huang combines his longstanding fascination with technology and the materials of modern life to transform mundane manufactured objects into novel and remarkably complex sculptural forms. Huang elevates circuit building, transistor rewiring, and other hardware operations into an art that connects not only with our senses but our sense of humanity between today's virtual and analog existence. Huang created his most ambitious immersive environment to datea kinetic sculptural installation consisting of more than 100 various-sized elements.

Support for "Reusable Universes: Shih Chieh Huang" has been provided by the Taipei Cultural Center in New York; Lisa Kirby Gibbs, Robin Kirby, and Diana (Kirby) Glimm; and UniBank.

Funding has also been provided in part by The Donald and Mary Melville Contemporary Art Program Fund and The John M. Nelson Fund. Media partners are Artscope Magazine, WBUR, and Worcester Magazine.
