Esoteric As In Learning explores what perception can mean, and what it means to perceive. How do we view things? What are we looking for? And how does the gaze affect the viewing? Obvious questions, but ones that never cease needing asking. Neal Rockwell, Lisa Lipton, Mary Rothlisberger, Future Proof (Patrick Cruz and Jabari Jordan-Walker) investigate this through a series of short video & audio works, each 20 mins in length. Live performances to follow.
