In Order to Control

NOTA BENE Visual

November 18, 2021- January 8, 2022

 

Glendale Library, Arts & Culture and ReflectSpace Gallery is proud to present “In Order to Control” by NOTA BENE Visual: an interactive typographic installation that encourages conversations about ethics and violence.

“In Order to Control” is a multi-media installation that uses typography and digital technology to engage the audience. The installation takes place in dark space where text is projected onto the floor in block paragraph form. The text is about a variety of topics like violence, imprisonment, ethics, law, societal norms, and other social justice issues. Using kinetics and interactive projection, the audience is able to interact with the text as they move through the space. This interaction and movement create a space in which conversations about the topics in the projected text can take place.

“In Order to Control” runs November 18 to January 8, 2022 at ReflectSpace Gallery in the Glendale Central Library at 222 East Harvard Street

Hours:

Mondays-Thursdays, 9am-9pm,

Fridays & Saturdays, 9am-6pm.



“Everything that’s legal is not always fair. Everything that’s fair is not always legal.” The experience begins with a text addressing the threshold of ethics and morality in society. This text projected on the floor of the gallery. When the audience steps on the projected foot print to read it, their shadow is projected onto the wall in front of them. Now the interaction begins.
