walk down the Artisphere's Mezz Gallery
Artisphere's Mezz Gallery is now hosting Alberto Gaitán's installation, Carrier. The little red robot travels back and forth across the long, narrow Mezz Gallery. The installation calls to mind an office worker stuck in a rut. Yet possibilities for creativity exist even for this robot in a rut. Look closely and listen, and you will perceive a huge, stringed instrument. The bottom arm of the robot plays a long, thin metal wire. The robot is not in reality merely stuck in a rut. The robot responds to the number and activity of persons in the Mezz Gallery.
After a frustrating day of work, walk to the Artisphere and walk down the Mezz Gallery. You will be inspired with possibilities for creativity.
