Every atom belonging to me as good belongs to you.

Milton Art Bank is thrilled to mark its five-year anniversary with an/atomy, a multi-media exhibition by MAB’s founder Brice Brown. On view is A Thing Attains A Life, a five-channel video with surround sound featuring dance and puppetry; Things I-IX, a series of sterling silver and foam sculptures; and Attainments I-VII, a suite of lenticular lens photographs. These works explore the temporal nature of life; the interconnectivity of all living things; and the beauty of impermanence. The action in A Thing Attains A Life moves from mainly dance to mainly puppetry as six dancers manipulate abstract cobalt-blue forms into more and more complex combinations, cycling from amoeba to animal to human. These cobalt forms can be seen as abstract shapes in space but are also references to body parts, bones, atoms, and energy itself. Each sculpture in the Thing series is comprised of one of the blue foam forms used in A Thing Attains A Life, now plated in silver. Removed from the digital world of the video, they have been materially transmuted from one state of existence to another. The Attainment photographs use the endlessly repetitive quality of lenticular lens technology to explore the fluidity of time and space and the fleeting nature of life. Produced as stop-motion animations situated in a digital space, these works reside forever between stasis and motion, in a continual state of flux.
