Artists are, in general, fairly empathic people. Being able to sense and feel the emotions of others — it’s part of the job. In a fictional world by artist Saya Woolfalk, Empathics are a group of shape-shifting human and plant hybrids seeking to find a utopia. The work, entitled ChimaTek: Hybridity Visualization Mandala, has an elaborate premise, but one that any real-life empathic can feel, well, empathetic towards. Woolfalk goes for broke, using just about every medium possible. Through colorful sculpture, textiles, painting, video, and performance art created during her residency at the prestigious Headlands Center for the Arts, she seeks to illustrate her idea of this utopia. These pieces are presented at the Asian Art Museum for one night only, alongside an original soundtrack by Paul D. Miller, aka DJ Spooky that Subliminal Kid, that’s as bold as Woolfalk’s artwork.
