A quiet roar: Build a house, dig a hole, in Hartford

Contributed by Neil Daigle-Orians / Walking in to Hartford’s Artspace Gallery, the viewer is immediately struck by a large, hand-painted green screen. Merging the analog with the digital, Michael Siporin Levine�s set up for Vision Test lingers outside the context of his performative projection.

Fiction (and curatorial statement): THEY’RE MADE OUT OF MEAT

The following short story, “They’re Made Out of Meat,” was written by sci-fi writer Terry Bisson and published in Omni Magazine in 1990.
