The next Synthetic Zero show, "Looking In/Looking Out", is curated by Emily Roberts-Negron and Mitsu Hadeishi, and will be at BronxArtSpace (only 20 mins from Union Square). The show includes performance, experimental video, music, and visual art. Please share this event on Facebook.

Looking in: I look at you, but I see a mixture of me and you, a facade of our reflections. When we look in on someone or some thing, we imagine what we see doesn't notice our gaze, yet the act of looking forever changes what we see as well as ourselves. Can we ever really be separate from what we see? Can we ever really touch what we see?

Looking out: A romantic gesture beyond ourselves. We look out at what appears to be a/the/our world, surrounding us in sequence. But its expanse is indefinite. How far can we see before the lines begin to blur?

Can we see without looking?
