Artist: Reina Kubota

Opening Reception: Friday, February 12, 6-8PM

ISE Cultural Foundation presents the exhibition “Hello?…Yes?” by the Japanese artist Reina Kubota at the front project space.

A relay network comprised of thousands of millions of neurons branches and integrates, like the social network of our world. The flow of the neurons end in two figures, ready to connect, yet apart. The empty space between the two hands are charged with suspense, like the fuzzy anticipation in your skin just before being touched….
