Bright Forest, an exhibition of sculpture by Michael Whiting: Creal Microgallery.

  community member   < less Bright Forest poster image

Creal Microgallery presents "Bright Forest," an exhibition of small-scale steel sculptures by Michael Whiting. Whiting is best known for his monumental sculptures referencing Minimalism and early video games. Early video gaming imagery depicted objects using a minimal number of pixels as a way of limiting the computer memory space needed to express it. But while these sculptures use this 8-bit visual language, they are constructed using the rigid lines and materials common to Minimalist art, which seeks to simplify forms and materials to only their essentials.
The title for this show, 'Bright Forest' is a reference to Dark Forest Theory, which proposes that our galaxy has many civilizations, but they choose not to communicate with others out of fear the other civilizations might destroy them. In this exhibition, Whiting's UFOs descend upon a gathering of 8-bit creatures in the forest. In doing so, Whiting lays out a playful scene that is both simple in nature and complex in concept.
