Sla307 is pleased to present group show, SMART DUST.  The term "Smart Dust" was dreamed up by UC Berkeley Professor Kris Pister in the 1990s. In this futuristic conception, the planet is sprinkled with zillions of micro/nano electro mechanical systems (MEMS), which monitor, detect, and interpret everything on Earth: light, temperature, vibration, magnetism, weight, chemicals, and, by extension, human thoughts, feelings, and desires. In a poetic way, this neural dust acts like the planet's central nervous system.  In a more dystopian interpretation, it can become an ultimate totalitarian mind control machine

Works are no bigger than 8 in x 8 in - with the idea of creating tension between a minimum of size and a maximum of contributors. The smallness of each part allows others to coexist in the same universe
