CCA and the Lighthouse for the Blind and Visually Impaired, a San Francisco non-for-profit organization, are pleased to present Glow in the Dark, a one-night exhibition of student work. The project takes place on the vacant building lot at 165 Grove Street in the Civic Center district of San Francisco, the future site of the Please Touch Garden, a community garden for blind and visually impaired people.
The project features work by the following CCA students:
* Elliott Aratanha
* Nicolas Colon
* David Elder,
* Ian Garrison
* Yoojin Kim
* Fred Kolouch
* Blaz Pirnat
* Robin Tilby
* Ping Zhang
The show brings together light sculpture, interactive projects, sound art, and tactile experiences that reflect on the condition of blindness and visual impairment. The exhibition comes out of an ongoing dialog between CCA undergraduate students and the Lighthouse community.
In various projects, sensory experiences are reevaluated, calling into question common perceptions of what it means to see, feel, hear, and touch. Glow in the Dark promotes the idea that there are many ways of seeing and that the relationships between bodily senses are more intertwined than commonly assumed.
