Coming up this week:

Rise Industries will be screening the video “Traveling to Infinity” as a part of the group show “Skin” put together by I/O at the Quotidian Gallery in San Francisco.

In “Traveling to Infinity”, the viewer glides along a picturesque California highway – caught in a repeating moment of double vision. In the center of the frame the highly polished mirrored surface of a tanker truck reflects the highway peeling back behind the traveler, obscuring the view ahead of the road inexorably scrolling towards them. This position, between projected and enveloping scenes, between gleaming surface and unfolding space, between the recent past and the fleeting future, establishes certainty in the uncertain and stakes out the in-between state – hanging on to it even as the bouncing movement of the camera threatens to break the moment.

The gallery is located in Suite 252 of the Phellan Building on the corner of Market and O’Farrell Streets in downtown San Francisco, near the Powel Street BART/MUNI station. It is open from 10:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m. Tuesday through Friday, and on Saturday from 11:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m.

A reception will be held on Thursday the 22nd (8 or 9ish to 11pm, contact gallery for more info) with video projected on the glazed exterior wall of the gallery – visible from both inside and from the street below.

Closer to home, Rise Industries will be showing two works at “Pacifically Designed” opening at Gallery 825 on Friday the 23rd (6 to 9pm). A Rise Industries Art Product, “Pace Building, Windows 2” will be shown, as well as a work from member Michele Jaquis. Michele’s piece, “Excerpt from Unimaginable” is an artifact from a larger installation which is still in progress.

Gallery 825 is at 825 La Cienega, south of Santa Monica Blvd. for directions and info.
