ChimaTek™: Hybridity Visualization Mandala 

When: Thu., Sept. 4, 6-9 p.m. 2014
Price: $5 after 5 p.m.
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.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
