bowl of water

In their elaborate but subdued multimedia installation, Susan Gans, Kim Schnuelle, David Traylor, and Stu Witmer take as their starting point the notion that "an entire world can exist in a bowl of water." Using brass, text, ceramics, photography, and audio loops, they deploy a series of bowls holding dice, larval shapes, and little metal squiggles. Processes of growth and randomness are suggested and contained in these half-full vessels. The sum meaning isn't a specific place or state of being, but some kind of indeterminate becoming or flow. Also on view: A Consortium of Tangibles, a series of plastic geometric works by Gordon Nealy. BRIAN MILLER

Wednesdays-Saturdays, 12-5 p.m. Starts: Nov. 4. Continues through Nov. 27, 2010
