Another event brought to you from Happy City Denver! The exhibition “Soft Something” at Understudy is an immersive installation by Colorado Springs-based artist Matt Barton. Featured within the installation is a mix of vibrating beds, aquaponics systems, and other functional materials, which together blur the boundary between a gallery, greenhouse and sanctuary. Within the exhibition’s dynamic environment, viewers are positioned as participants – invited to relax, play and explore the uncertain middle-ground between belief and cynicism. The site-specific installation “Soft Something” evokes the complex tensions between utilitarian function and spirituality, suggesting that natural environments and the act of resting can provide a sense of unexpected healing.
